Configuration Store

  • URL:https://<system-url>/configStore
  • Required Capability:Administrator
  • Version Introduced:10.8


The configuration store maintains all of server's configurations. Typical configurations include all the resources such as clusters, machines, GIS services, and security rules that are required to power a Site. In a way, the configuration store is a physical representation of a site.

Every server machine, when it joins the site, is provided with a connection to the configuration store and it can thereafter participate in the management of the site. You can change the store's properties during runtime using the edit operation.

The Administrator API that runs on every server machine is capable of reading and writing to the store. As a result, the store must be accessible to every server machine within the site. The default implementation is built on top of a file system and stores all the configurations in a hierarchy of folders and files.
