# Configuration

The HERE Data SDK for Python is configured via jproperties. This means that if the default values do not fit your application's needs you can overwrite one or more configuration parameters accordingly.

The default path to the application configuration file is

• for Linux/MacOS: \$HOME/.here/application_config.conf
• for Windows: %USERPROFILE%\.here\application_config.conf

These are the configuration parameters for the HERE Data SDK for Python.
