Core role configuration overview

Core roles have a shared configuration framework that allow you to:

  • Define a server role or a supported combination of server roles. For example, a single Core role instance can act as an xDB Processing role or a combination of Content Management, xDB Processing, and xDB Reporting.

  • Use rule-based configuration to switch your own configuration on and off depending on the context role.

  • Patch configuration changes instead of modifying the default configuration files.

  • Use the showconfig.aspx tool to see what the final compiled configuration looks like per role.
