In the first part of this article, we have seen how to set up a simple scenario with a Spring Cloud Config server and the client counterpart. The server was set with a native profile, and the configuration was stored in the classpath, in a subfolder named config. The demo was made of a single instance of a server and client.
In part two, we will show how to configure Spring Cloud Config to connect and use an external Git repository. Then, in the next sections, we will talk about refreshing the configuration data without restarting the services.
