You can find the configuration files in
conf/ in the code editor, or in
src/main/resources/conf/ in the project directory. The configuration files are organized by function or by module, as follows:
These configuration files support hierarchical cascading of the files via the open-source Fig project.
This section describes the most important configuration files in the
Global configuration settings.
Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) configuration.
Specify Fusion platform settings.
Specify which Fusion query profile to use.
Configure the Fusion security realm.
The App Studio application looks up global settings from a
twigkit.conf configuration file that the application tries to locate relative to
config on the runtime classpath.
The path to the license file relative to the
"True" to trim white space in the application UI.
The number of milliseconds a resource bundle (for example, a file like
CORS or Cross-Origin Resource Sharing is a recent W3C effort to introduce a standard mechanism for enabling cross-domain requests from web browsers to servers that wish to handle them.
App Studio supports CORS filtering by default. You can control the options for the particular header attributes using the
cors.conf file at the root of the
Whitespace-separated list of origins that the CORS filter must allow. Requests from origins not included here will be refused with an HTTP 403 "Forbidden" response. If set to
List of the supported HTTP methods. These are advertized through the Access-Control-Allow-Methods header and must also be implemented by the actual CORS web service. Requests for methods not included here will be refused by the CORS filter with an HTTP 405 "Method not allowed" response.
Indicates whether user credentials, such as cookies, HTTP authentication or client-side certificates, are supported. The CORS filter uses this value in constructing the Access-Control-Allow-Credentials header.
Indicates how long the results of a preflight request can be cached by the web browser, in seconds. If -1 unspecified. This information is passed to the browser via the Access-Control-Max-Age header.
To make version control and specialization of configuration easier, the configuration is loaded hierarchically. For example, in the
/platforms directory are subdirectories for
/fusion folder is
/fusion/fusion.conf, which may contain the following general attributes:
Within the same folder, you might find one or more configuration files which inherit or extend this one, such as
people.conf. To access a given configuration, use dot notation, such as
platforms.fusion.people. The configuration system will traverse the hierarchy (no matter how deep) and aggregate the configuration files, overwriting attributes from higher-level files when those attributes also appear in lower-level files.
For example, if
fusion.conf contains a
defaultQuery attribute and you create
internal.conf which also contains a
defaultQuery, then the value from
internal.conf is used. This allows you to create variations on the same platform configuration. You can then refer to any platform instance in other configuration files or in the
<search:platform conf="platforms.fusion.internal" />
In this case App Studio will use the platform as configured centrally, irrespective of the search engine behind it, effectively abstracting the data provider from the view.
The configuration files can be placed outside of the application and centrally accessed by multiple instances.
To reference these in a different location, set the
twigkit.conf system property to the absolute file path of the
/conf folder, like this:
To add special characters to key names in configuration files you need to escape the special characters. For example, if a key name contained a whitespace, such as
My key: value then you would need to escape the whitespace for the configuration to be correctly loaded. In this case, the correct syntax would be:
My key: value
This rule does not just apply to whitespace but any special character that you may wish to use within a key name.
AppKit uses three cookies:
JSESSIONID for authentication, and
tk.session to track session metadata.
JSESSIONIDis used by Spring Security for authentication and to maintain the session for the user
tk.query.ctx_nullstores the current query term to track whether the query is refined
appkitRequestCookieis used to prevent Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) when using social features
