Estimated reading: 2 minutes 212 views

Visual Guard generates two configuration files for every application which is being integrated with it.

The configuration file contains the information about the repository used by the application.

The files need to be regenerated under following conditions:

  • Each time you need to change the Visual Guard repository and connect to your application.
  • When you change the authentication mode supported by the repository.
  • When you enable or disable the anonymous session.
  • When you change the information about the connection to the repository (like server, schema or database name, repository path).
  • When you create a new version of the application by using the console and you want to access to this new version from your application.

To regenerate Visual Guard configuration files, follow the steps below.
