Are Globals supposed to allow me to create multiple records?

Hello, today I'm using globals for the first time. As I understand it, and as the payload AI chatbot confirmed, globals are supposed to allow me to create a single record. For some reason, inside my admin panel I can create multiple. Here is my code


import { GlobalConfig } from 'payload/types'
import { TextLeft } from '../CustomComponents/ShopBlockImage1'
import Products from './Products'
import ShopMedia from './ShopMedia'

const Shop: GlobalConfig = {
  slug: 'shop',
  access: {
    read: () => true,
    // create: () => true,
    update: () => true,
    // delete: () => true,
  },
  fields: [
    {
      name: 'title',
      type: 'text',
      label: 'Titolo'
    },
    {
      name: 'description',
      type: 'textarea',
      label: 'Descrizione'
    },
    {
      type: 'upload',
      relationTo: ShopMedia.slug,
      name: 'shopHeaderImage',
      label: 'Foto header'
    },
    {
      type: 'ui',
      name: 'shopBlock1',
      admin: {
        components: {
          Field: TextLeft,
        },
      },
    },
    {
      name: 'shopProducts',
      type: 'relationship',
      relationTo: Products.slug,
      hasMany: true,
    },
    // Add a relationship to products, so when an admin wants to list and de-list products from the shop it is easier as it doesn't need to be deleted to remove it from the Shop page
  ],
}

export default Shop


Is it normal? Thanks!



Payload "version": "1.11.5"

I have tried to drop the Shop collection from MongoDB and populated it again, but it showed the same behavior (can create multiple records)

    Where in your

    payload.config.ts

    have you added this

    shop

    global?



    If it is in the

    collections

    array, that's the issue.. Needs to be inside a

    globals

    array in the config

    Thank you!
