It may be a good idea to read the json file while parsing
configuration. Such things are usually done either when
processing a directive which specifies a file to use, or in a
configuration merge callback.
E.g., XSLT filter loads stylesheets specified in the
ngx_http_xslt_stylesheet() function, which is called to handle the
"xslt_stylesheet" directive. See
src/http/modules/ngx_http_xslt_filter_module.c for details.
