Spring Cloud Config Server is a great tool for getting your application configuration under source control. We’ll start with a quick overview of Spring’s environment and properties and how Config Server enhances those — while keeping the same model.
Next, we’ll discuss what concerns you need to take into account when rolling out Config Server — like security, encryption, and location of your repositories (if using Git).
Finally, we’ll discuss Config Server’s extensibility, particularly dealing with security (since Config Server serves up properties decrypted) and even going so far as adding ‘Filtering’ to allow for capabilities akin to CloudFoundry ‘Services’ for making shared configs that are available across many applications, even accounting for how you might test those extensions.
