In the documentation for setting up a .NET content delivery site for SDL Web 8, is written: Ensure that in IIS, the WCF Service feature "HTTP Activation" is switched on.

I have been able to add "HTTP Activation" as a server feature using the Windows Server Manager, under:

|---- .NET Framework 4.5 Features (Installed) 
  | ---- WCF Services (Installed)
     | ---- HTTP Activation (Installed)

I don't see any settings for this in the IIS snap-in. Is this sufficient, or do I have further configurations to make in IIS?

Yes! That is sufficient to enable HTTP activation from IIS.
