I'm trying to find a translation for "Example configuration" for a technical documentation.

Should I use "Configuration de exemple"?

    If you're stumbling on this, it does not bode well for the rest of the translation...

It depends on the context.

If the configuration is just a generic example, then the correct translation would be

Exemple de configuration.

If the configuration is one used for a previous example, then the translation is

Configuration de l'exemple.


If an "example" is configured, then say:

configuration de l'exemple

(but I really don't think that you want to say that)

If you talking about a possibility for a computer configuration (more probable), then say:

exemple de configuration
