Orion/Documentation/Developer Guide/Configuration services

Overview of configuration services

Orion provides a number of service APIs related to service configuration.

The service provides management of configuration data. This service is analogous to the OSGi ConfigurationAdmin.

Here is an example of how to use the ConfigurationAdmin service to print out all existing configurations and their property values:

var configurations = serviceRegistry.getService("").listConfigurations().then(function(configurations) {
        configurations.forEach(function(configuration) {
            var properties = configuration.getProperties();
            var propertyInfo = Object.keys(properties).map(function(propertyName) {
                if (propertyName !== "pid") {
                    return "\n        " + propertyName + ": " + JSON.stringify(properties[propertyName]) + "\n";
            console.log("Configuration pid: " + configuration.getPid() + "\n"
                      + "  properties: {" + propertyInfo + "\n"
                      + "  }");

The result might look something like this:

Configuration pid: nonnls.config
  properties: {
        enabled: false
Configuration pid: jslint.config
  properties: {
        options: "laxbreak:true, maxerr:50"

Refer to in the client API reference for a full description of this service's API methods.

Contributes type definitions, which may be associated with a service's configuration. This is analogus to the OSGi Metatype.

Contributes a managed service. A managed service is a service that can receive configuration info. This is analogus to the OSGi Managed Service.
