Configuring the Web Services

You can, and frequently must, explicitly specify the desired behavior of the Spectrum Spatial web services via settings in each web service's configuration file. The configuration files for web services in Spectrum Spatial are held in the Spectrum Spatial repository as named configuration.

Note: Named configurations are not like other named resources that are held in the repository. You cannot use the Named Resource Service to access named configurations. Instead, you must use a WebDAV tool such as WebFolders.

Configuration files are pre-loaded in the repository for the Mapping, Feature, Map Tiling, WFS, WMS, and WMTS services. These configuration files are located at:


For information about the name and location of each web service's named configuration in the repository, as well as a list of the configuration parameters for each web service, refer to Working With Spatial Services.
