Configuring Web Services API

To configure the Web Service API edit the file ‘WebReportsApi.xml’ which is located in the Config sub-folder where the Web Service API is installed. The location of the Config sub-folder is determined when the Web Service API is installed. Set the following items:

  • apppath – file path to the Exago web application. E.g. "C:\Exago"
  • throwexceptiononerror – set to true if you want to catch exceptions in your application thrown by Exago.
  • writelog – To turn on logging for the web service, set this to true. Then configure log4net by adding a log4net.config file to the \Config folder, as described in this article. Set web service logging to the INFO level unless directed otherwise.
    Note: Grant write permissions to the ASP.NET app pool user for the log file directory.
