Service type configurationΒΆ

It may also be necessary to provide configuration options for the code that uses the services (and not for usage inside the services themselves). It is recommended to make use of the following syntax:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SVCONF'][service type]['setup'][config key] = value;

Example:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SVCONF']['auth']['setup']['FE_alwaysFetchUser'] = true;

This configuration can be placed in a local configuration file (ext_localconf.php ). There's no API for retrieving these values. It's just a best practice recommendation.
