Configuration parameters needed during the execution of a Web application based on the Atomia Web Frame are stored in three types of config files:
- Web.config file of the application – global application settings.
- app.config files of the application’s plugin(s) – plugin specific application settings.
- custom config files referenced from the Web.config file of the application – global application setting blocks moved into a separate file(s) to achieve modularity of the Web.config file.
The identity.config file stored in the Atomia Web Frame’s root folder is an example of a custom config file. It contains the<microsoft.identityModel> configuration section (the configuration section for Microsoft Identity), and is referenced from the Web.config file in the following way:
<microsoft.identityModel configSource="identity.config" />
