This is a page to collect a shared list of use cases for context-specific configuration in Sling-based applications, see discussion on mailing list.

From Stefan

A collection of use cases for what we need context-specific configuration per site, country, region etc. in our projects. According to the term definitions in Multitenancy scenarios and use cases we have always "Massive Multi Site" scenarios.

In general no security-sensitive stuff is stored in the context-specific configuration. If this is needed they are stored in OSGi configurations and referenced from there (e.g. by a named factory configuration).
