Plugins configuration

External interfaces

Each plugin can store its own settings independently in file /plugins/<plugin_name>/config.ini.

The platform provides:

  • common interfaces for reading the plugins settings using the class PluginConfigReader;
  • output the availability of configs of plugins via /<prefix>/plugin;
  • web interface for reading/editing configs of the plugins /<instance_perfix>/plugin_config/<plugin_name> (р PluginConfigResource):
    • GET – returns the content of a plugin;
    • PUT – rewrites the config again;
    • Transfer/receiving data is performed in format JSON.
