Spring cloud config match profile

Tags: , , ,



I have a hierarchy structure of applications files in my git repository as follows:

uri: https://bitbucket.org/repositorios-company/configuration-files

Directory:

-authorization-service
----application.yml
----application-development.yml
----application-uat.yml
----application-production.yml
-cpo-executor
----application.yml
----application-development.yml
----application-uat.yml
----application-production.yml

In config project yml file:

server:
    port: 8888
spring:
    application:
        name: config-server
    cloud:
        config:
            server:
                git:
                    username: ###### 
                    ....
                    uri: https://bitbucket.org/repositorios-company/cup-configuration-files
                    searchPaths: '{application}'

Problems:

  1. When I try to access the file of development by url http://localhost:8888/authorization-service/development spring load two files and not only one as I expected:
2021-01-13 10:34:40.549  INFO 141562 --- [nio-8888-exec-1] o.s.c.c.s.e.NativeEnvironmentRepository  : Adding property source: file:/tmp/config-repo-3531515016986363333/authorization-service/application.yml
2021-01-13 10:34:48.950  INFO 141562 --- [nio-8888-exec-2] o.s.c.c.s.e.NativeEnvironmentRepository  : Adding property source: file:/tmp/config-repo-3531515016986363333/authorization-service/application-development.yml

  1. When a client application, using the following configuration, tries to access the corresponding config file, spring only brings the application.yml file and not the file corresponding to the profile:

Client yml:

spring.application.name=authorization-service
spring.profiles.active=development
spring.cloud.config.uri=http://localhost:8888

After application starts, spring cloud config log shows the default application.yml:

2021-01-13 11:09:11.346  INFO 144899 --- [nio-8888-exec-2] o.s.c.c.s.e.NativeEnvironmentRepository  : Adding property source: file:/tmp/config-repo-1131390371944673193/authorization-service/application.yml

Edited: I’ve checked if the value changed in runtime and if it has taken the values from application-development.yml, but not.

Does anybody know how can I bring only one config file to the two situations?

Answer

Three things to consider:

  1. Even though I utilized profile as “spring.profiles.active=development” Spring looks for application-dev.properties and not application-development.properties file. I utilized Spring actuator to see which profile Spring was looking for.

How to use Spring actuator

http://localhost:8080/actuator/env

{"activeProfiles":["dev"],....}
  1. Even thought two files were loaded in Spring Cloud Config, only the corresponding profile file was utilized by application client:
INFO 373818 ...NativeEnvironmentRepository  : Adding property source: file:/tmp/config-repo/authorization-service/application-dev.properties
INFO 373818 ...NativeEnvironmentRepository  : Adding property source: file:/tmp/config-repo/authorization-service/application.properties

But if you need an application only to consume the file corresponding to it profile, when access http://localhost:8888/authorization-service/dev, just remove the default application.yml from git repository.

  1. When using Spring Cloud Config utilize bootstrap.{yml|properties} and not application.{yml|properties} in your application client.

What is the difference between putting a property on application.yml or bootstrap.yml in spring boot?
