1) Setting a data source that will be used in all reports:

const pivot = new WebDataRocks({
  container: "#wdr-component",
  global: {

See the full code on CodePen.

2) Setting options to make all reports read-only:

const pivot = new WebDataRocks({
  container: "#wdr-component",
  global: {
    options: {
      grid: {
        showFilter: false,
        showReportFiltersArea: false,
      },
      configuratorButton: false,
      drillThrough: false,
      sorting: "off", 
    },
  }
});

  global: {
    localization: "https://cdn.webdatarocks.com/loc/es.json"
  }
});

4) Overriding global configurations in the report:

const pivot = new WebDataRocks({

      grid: {
        showFilter: true,
      },
      configuratorButton: true,
    },
