Assigns multiple keys for the application-wide default settings. If the key specified in your API call does no exist, the endpoint will create a new key using the default value. If the key does exist, the current value of the key will be overwritten. If your API call succeeds, you'll get back a Boolean value that indicates whether the key already existed. A true value means that the key has been overwritten; a false means a new key has been created.

Note. You cannot use settings/set_default_multi to modify any client-specific settings.
