Application: System and method for centralized configuration of distributed and heterogeneous applications (Patent ID: US20240103886A1)

The patent filed by Open Text Corp. describes systems and methods for centrally configuring distributed heterogeneous services in an enterprise computing environment. These systems and methods allow for the configuration of different service types, such as off-cloud services associated with a cloud-based computing platform. The configuration server determines changes to configuration files associated with service types, retrieves configuration data, and sends messages to message queues for service instances to configure themselves accordingly. The service instances obtain these messages and adjust their configurations based on the received data, ensuring efficient management of services in a distributed environment.

The patent claims detail the specific functionalities and processes involved in the centralized configuration of services. These include storing configuration files in a versioning system, determining changes based on commits in the system, and utilizing registry services to identify executing service instances. The methods outlined in the patent involve determining service types, retrieving configuration data, and utilizing message services to facilitate communication between the configuration server and service instances. By providing a structured approach to managing configurations in a distributed environment, the systems and methods described in the patent offer a comprehensive solution for efficiently configuring and maintaining heterogeneous services within an enterprise computing environment.
