IDataServiceConfiguration Interface

The IDataServiceConfiguration is used by WCF Data Services to set up the behavior of the service, including rights on entity sets and service operations, limits on the allowed requests, registering types not discoverable by default, and the default verbosity on error handling.

Namespace:  System.Data.Services
Assembly:  System.Data.Services (in System.Data.Services.dll)

The IDataServiceConfiguration type exposes the following members.

Public propertyMaxBatchCountGets the maximum number of requests that can be handled in a batch.
Public propertyMaxChangesetCountGets the maximum number of change sets that can be handled in a batch.
Public propertyMaxExpandCountGets or sets the maximum number of segments that can be expanded by the $expand query option for all requests to the data service.
Public propertyMaxExpandDepthGets or sets a maximum number of segments supported in a single $expand path for all requests to the data service.

Public propertyMaxResultsPerCollectionGets the maximum number of results per collection.

Public methodRegisterKnownTypeRegisters a resource type for use by the data service.
Public methodSetEntitySetAccessRuleSets the access rules for the specified entity set.
