testing tyk and
api configuration is in a file under the apps directory.
tyk.conf has: “use_db_app_configs”:false

tyk is working now in a “transparent proxy” mode.

now it is wanted to move the api config from the json file to the database and turn
“use_db_app_configs”:false to “use_db_app_configs”:true.

How can this be done?

Hi Thorsten,

We’ve now released version 0.8 of the Tyk Dashboard, which enables importing API Definitions from a file using a simple interface, you can see all the details here:

Alternatively, as suggested in my email, manually reating the defintitions in the tyk_apps collection in your mongo database will get Tyk to use a database-backed version of your configuration.
