Configuration

This section lists the available configuration components that can be used in the YAML configuration file.

Example config.yaml

throwErrorOnExtraParameters: true

certificateStore: !certificateStore
  ...

credentials:
  - !credential
    ...

proxies:
  - !proxy
    ...

templates:
  A4 Landscape: !template
    ...

!acceptAll��

A matcher that always returns true.

Example

 http_processors 

Configuration

reject
Reverses the matcher. Instead of accepting an URI when the URI matches, the URI is rejected.

!alwaysAllowedAssertion��

This assertion always allows access.

!andAssertion��

An access assertion that throws fails if any of the encapsulated assertions fail.

Configuration

predicates
Set all the Predicates/AccessAssertion that have to all pass in order for this assertion to pass.

An exception is thrown if this method is called more than once.

!certificateStore��

A configuration object for configuring a custom certificate/trust store.

It is a uri to a java jks keystore file along with the password for unlocking the store.

Configuration

configuration
Description copied from interface: HasConfiguration
password
The password for unlocking the certificate store.
uri
The uri to the certificate store. It is a uri to a java jks keystore file along with the password for unlocking the store.

!configuration��

The Main Configuration Bean.

Configuration

access
The roles required to access this configuration/app. If empty or not set then it is a public app. If there are many roles then a user must have one of the roles in order to access the configuration/app.

The security (how authentication/authorization is done) is configured in the /WEB-INF/classes/mapfish-spring-security.xml

Any user without the required role will get an error when trying to access any of the templates and no templates will be listed in the capabilities requests.

allowedReferers
The matchers used to authorize the incoming requests in function of the referer. For example:
 allowedReferers:
- !hostnameMatch
host: example.com
allowSubDomains: true

By default, the referer is not checked

certificateStore
The configuration for locating a custom certificate store. This is only required if the default certificate store which ships with all java installations does not contain the certificates needed by this server. Usually it is to accept a self-signed certificate, for example on a test server.
configurationFile
credentials
Http credentials to be used when making http requests.

If a proxy needs credentials you don't need to configure it here because the proxy configuration object also has options for declaring the credentials.

defaultStyle
Set the default styles. the case of the keys are not important. The retrieval will be case insensitive.
defaultToSvg
If true then all vector layers (and other parts of the system that can be either SVG or Bitmap, like scalebar) will be rendered as SVG (unless layer specifically indicates useSvg as false).

The default is false.

fileLoaderManager
Set file loader manager.
jdbcDrivers
Set the JDBC drivers that are required to connect to the databases in the configuration. JDBC drivers are needed (for example) when database sources are used in templates. For example if in one of the template you have:
     jdbcUrl: "jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/morges_dpfe"

then you need to add:

     jdbcDrivers: [org.postgresql.Driver]

or

     jdbcDrivers:
- org.postgresql.Driver
opaqueTileErrorColor
Color used for tiles in error on opaque layers.
outputFilename
The default output file name of the report. This can be overridden by Template.setOutputFilename(String) and the outputFilename parameter in the request JSON.

This can be a string and can also have a date section in the string that will be filled when the report is created for example a section with ${} will be replaced with the current date formatted in the way defined by the string. The format rules are the rules in java.text.SimpleDateFormat (do a google search if the link above is broken).

Example: outputFilename: print-${dd-MM-yyyy} should output: print-22-11-2014.pdf

Note: the suffix will be appended to the end of the name.

pdfConfig
Configure various properties related to the reports generated as PDFs.
proxies
Configuration for proxying http requests. Each proxy can be configured with authentication and with the uris that they apply to.

See HttpProxy for details on how to configure them.
resourceBundle
Set the resource bundle name.
smtp
styles
Set the named styles defined in the configuration for this.
templates
Set the configuration of the named template.
throwErrorOnExtraParameters
If true and the request JSON has extra parameters in the layers definition, exceptions will be thrown. Otherwise the information will be logged.
transparentTileErrorColor
Color used for tiles in error on transparent layers.

!credential��

Represents a set of credentials to use for an http request. These can be configured in the Configuration yaml file.

Note: proxies are also HttpCredentials and when searching for credentials, the proxies will also be searched for credentials.

Configuration

matchers
Matchers are used to choose which requests the credentials apply to.
password
The password for authenticating with the credentials.

This is optional

username
The username for authenticating with the credentials.

This is optional

!dnsMatch��

Allows to check that a given URL matches a DNS address (textual format). The actual comparison is performed on numerical IP addresses. The configured DNS host address is transformed into numerical IP addresses during application startup. The urls to be compared are transformed during the print processing.

Example 1: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url

     - !dnsMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com

Example 2: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url (port == -1 accepts any port)

     - !dnsMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
port : -1

Example 3: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url on port 80 only

     - !dnsMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
port : 80

Example 4: Accept www.camptocamp.com urls with paths that start with /print/.

If the regular expression give does not start with / then it will be added because all paths start with /

     - !dnsMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
pathRegex : /print/.+

Example

 http_processors 

Configuration

host
Set the host.
pathRegex
The regular expression used to verify the path of the uri as is expected. All paths start with /.

The regular expression used are the ones supported by java: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html

port
reject
Reverses the matcher. Instead of accepting an URI when the URI matches, the URI is rejected.

!hostnameMatch��

Allows to check that a given URL matches a hostname literally (textual match).

Example 1: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url

     - !hostnameMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com

Example 2: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url (port == -1 accepts any port)

     - !hostnameMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
port : -1

Example 3: Accept any www.camptocamp.com url on port 80 only

     - !hostnameMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
port : 80

Example 4: Accept www.camptocamp.com urls with paths that start with /print/.

If the regular expression give does not start with / then it will be added because all paths start with /

     - !hostnameMatch
host : www.camptocamp.com
pathRegex : /print/.+

Configuration

allowSubDomains
Set if sub-domains are allowed.
host
Set the host.
pathRegex
The regular expression used to verify the path of the uri as is expected. All paths start with /.

The regular expression used are the ones supported by java: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html

port
reject
Reverses the matcher. Instead of accepting an URI when the URI matches, the URI is rejected.

!ipMatch��

Compares ip address string and mask string by using InetAddress comparison.

Example 1: accept any uri whose host matches the ip of www.camptocamp.com

     - !ipMatch
ip : www.camptocamp.com

Example 2: accept any uri whose host ip starts with 192.1

     - !ipMatch
ip : 192.1.0.0
mask : 255.255.0.0

Example 3: accept any uri whose host ip starts with 192.1 and restricts to port 80

     - !ipMatch
ip : 192.1.0.0
mask : 255.255.0.0
port : 80

Example 4: accept any uri whose host ip starts with 192.1 and and allows any port (-1 is any port)

     - !ipMatch
ip : 192.1.0.0
mask : 255.255.0.0
port : -1

Example 5: accept any uri whose host ip starts with 192.1 and restricts to paths that start with /print/

     - !ipMatch
ip : 192.1.0.0
mask : 255.255.0.0
pathRegex : /print/.+
