CastAway: Configuration Files

the CastAway engine is configured via a set of JSON files which are loaded from a folder specified when the engine is started. The default folder is C:\Program Files\Rascular\CastAway\Settings

The JSON files support comments using the “//” marker. For each settings file , a related JSON Schema file (from C:\Program Files\Rascular\CastAway\Schemas) is used to verify the file contents, and to allow JSON editing tools to dynamically check files and show hints and other information.

At Rascular, we use Visual Studio Code to view and edit JSON files, but you can use any regular text editor such as Notepad or Notepad++

These files can be edited by hand to access configuration settings that are not available in the web UI. After editing the files, the CastAway Engine will need to be restarted.
