After a configuration is created, you can publish the configuration to your applications. Changes in configurations are frequent. You may need to manage configuration changes regularly. This topic describes how to query, modify, and delete a configuration in the Enterprise Distributed Application Service (EDAS) console.

Query configurations

EDAS allows you to query configurations by data ID, group ID, or a combination of data ID and group ID.

  1. Log on to the EDAS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Configuration Management > Configurations.
  3. On the Configurations page, select a region in the top navigation bar and select a namespace from the Namespace drop-down list. You can query configurations by Group, Data ID, Belonging application, and Label.
    Use filter conditions to query configurations

    After you find the configuration that you queried, you can perform the following operations:

    • To view the details of the configuration, click the data ID of the configuration in the Data ID column.
    • To modify the configuration, click Actions in the Edit column.
    • To delete the configuration, click Actions in the Delete column of the configuration.
    • To export the configuration, select the configuration and click Export at the bottom of the page.
    • To clone the configuration to another namespace in the same region, select the configuration and click Clone at the bottom of the page.

View the details of a configuration

  1. For more information about how to query a configuration, see Query configurations.
  2. On the Configurations page, find the configuration whose details you want to view, and click the data ID of the configuration in the Data ID column.
  3. On the Configuration Details page, you can view the information about the configuration such as the basic information, configuration content, sample code, previous versions, push tracking, and configuration update monitoring.

  2. In the Edit Configuration panel, modify the configuration and click Publish.
    Modify a configuration

    For more information about configuration parameters, see Create a configuration. In the Edit Configuration panel, you can configure three advanced features. The following table describes these features.

    Feature Description Remarks
    Schema validator Checks the schema of configurations that are written in different languages, such as JSON and XML. After you select a schema, the corresponding schema validator appears. This reduces exceptions that are caused by syntax errors. Before you modify a configuration in the editor, select a schema as Configuration format.
    Configuration comparison Compares the configuration to be published with the current configuration after you submit the configuration changes. This reduces user errors. A configuration comparison message appears after you click Publish to submit configuration changes.
    Beta release Critical configuration errors may cause great loss. Therefore, you must verify a new configuration on some instances before you publish it to the production environment. If no issues are found, you can publish the configuration to all instances. This minimizes the negative impacts of configuration errors. After you turn on Beta release, you must enter the IP addresses of the instances where you want to verify a configuration. If you want to verify the configuration on an on-premises machine, enter the public IP address of the on-premises machine.

Delete a configuration

  1. On the Configurations page, find the configuration that you want to delete and click Delete in the Actions column.
  2. In the Delete configuration message, confirm the information about the configuration and click OK.
