Generating Application Configuration Files

Estimated reading: 2 minutes 194 views

Overview

Visual Guard provides a convenient way to generate application configuration files for securing your applications. These configuration files contain the necessary settings and information required to integrate Visual Guard’s security features into your application, including the information to connect to the VGRepository.

Using the WinConsole or WebConsole

To generate the application configuration files using Visual Guard, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Visual Guard WinConsole or WebConsole.
  2. Select the specific application for which you want to generate the configuration files.
  3. Locate the “Generate Configuration File” operation within the console interface.
  4. Execute the “Generate Configuration File” operation.

Purpose of Configuration Files

The generated configuration files serve the following purposes:

  • Security Integration: The configuration files contain the necessary settings and information to integrate Visual Guard’s security features into your application. This includes details such as authentication methods, role and permission mappings, and other security-related configurations.
  • VGRepository Connection: The configuration files also include the necessary information to connect your application to the VGRepository. This includes the connection details, such as the database server address, credentials, and other relevant information.

Configuration File Output

When you execute the “Generate Configuration File” operation, Visual Guard will generate one or more configuration files specific to your application. These files are typically in XML or other structured formats and may include information such as:

  • Security settings, including authentication methods and user management configurations.
  • Role and permission mappings for different application functionalities.
  • VGRepository connection details, including server address, credentials, and other relevant information.

Integrating Configuration Files

Once you have the generated configuration files, you need to integrate them into your application. The exact integration process may vary depending on your application’s technology stack and development environment. Typically, you would include the configuration files in your application’s build or deployment process and ensure that the application reads and applies the configurations at runtime.

Please consult your application’s documentation or development team for specific instructions on integrating the Visual Guard configuration files into your application and establishing the connection to the VGRepository.
