Configuration
=============
Description
-----------
cdist obtains configuration data from the following sources in the following
order:
#. command-line options
#. configuration file specified at command-line using -g command line option
#. configuration file specified in CDIST_CONFIG_FILE environment variable
#. environment variables
#. user's configuration file (first one found of ~/.cdist.cfg, $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/cdist/cdist.cfg, in specified order)
#. system-wide configuration file (/etc/cdist.cfg)
if one exists.
Configuration source with lower ordering number from above has a higher
precedence. Configuration option value read from source with higher
precedence will overwrite option value, if exists, read from source with
lower precedence. That means that command-line option wins them all.
Users can decide on the local conifguration file location. It can be either
~/.cdist.cfg or $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/cdist/cdist.cfg. Note that, if both exist,
then ~/.cdist.cfg is used.
For a per-project configuration, particular environment variables or better,
CDIST_CONFIG_FILE environment variable or -g CONFIG_FILE command line option,
can be used.
Config file format
------------------
cdist configuration file is in the INI file format. Currently it supports
only [GLOBAL] section.
The possible keywords and their meanings are as follows:
:strong:`archiving`
Use specified archiving. Valid values include:
'none', 'tar', 'tgz', 'tbz2' and 'txz'.
:strong:`beta`
Enable beta functionality. It recognizes boolean values from
'yes'/'no', 'on'/'off', 'true'/'false' and '1'/'0'.
:strong:`cache_path_pattern`
Specify cache path pattern.
:strong:`conf_dir`
List of configuration directories separated with the character conventionally
used by the operating system to separate search path components (as in PATH),
such as ':' for POSIX or ';' for Windows.
If also specified at command line then values from command line are
appended to this value.
:strong:`init_manifest`
Specify default initial manifest.
:strong:`inventory_dir`
Specify inventory directory.
:strong:`jobs`
Specify number of jobs for parallel processing. If -1 then the default,
number of CPU's in the system is used. If 0 then parallel processing in
jobs is disabled. If set to positive number then specified maximum
number of processes will be used.
:strong:`local_shell`
Shell command used for local execution.
:strong:`out_path`
Directory to save cdist output in.
:strong:`parallel`
Process hosts in parallel. If -1 then the default, number of CPU's in
the system is used. If 0 then parallel processing of hosts is disabled.
If set to positive number then specified maximum number of processes
will be used.
:strong:`remote_copy`
Command to use for remote copy (should behave like scp).
:strong:`remote_exec`
Command to use for remote execution (should behave like ssh).
:strong:`remote_out_path`
Directory to save cdist output in on the target host.
:strong:`remote_shell`
Shell command at remote host used for remote execution.
:strong:`verbosity`
Set verbosity level. Valid values are:
'ERROR', 'WARNING', 'INFO', 'VERBOSE', 'DEBUG', 'TRACE' and 'OFF'.
