I'm creating an ASP.NET MVC application to work with data from an API that has a couple of different endpoints for different geographical regions. Each region has a name, an alphanumeric ID and a host URL. e.g.:
Western Europe - WE1 - we.api.com.
There are less than a dozen regions and their values won't change, though regions might get added or removed in the future. I would like to store these in a maintainable way so that I can easily pass them as parameters to functions. e.g.:
GetUserData("username", Region.WesternEurope, true).
I have used Enums for this before for APIs where endpoints were defined by a single value but I can't decide how to go about this. One option I've considered is creating an Enum with just the names and then mapping those to objects in a dictionary in a static class, but I'm not a very experienced programmer and I don't know if this would be a good idea.
