Abstract ELI-ALPS (Extreme Light Infrastructure - Attosecond Light Pulse Source) is a new Research Infrastructure under implementation in Hungary. The infrastructure will consist of various systems (laser sources, beam transport, secondary sources, end stations) built on top of common subsystems (HVAC, cooling water, vibration monitoring, vacuum system, etc.), yielding a heterogeneous environment. To support the full control software development lifecycle for this complex infrastructure a flexible hierarchical configuration model has been defined, and a supporting toolset has been developed for its management. The configuration model is comprehensive as it covers all relevant aspects of the entire controlled system, the control software components and all the necessary connections between them. Furthermore, it supports the generation of virtual environments that approximate the hardware environment for software testing purposes. The toolset covers configuration functions such as storage, version control, GUI editing and queries. The model and tools presented in our paper are not specific to ELI-ALPS or to the ELI community, they may be useful for other research institutions as well.
