System Properties

The system configuration can be maintained/supplied in three ways.

Configuration File

The most commonly and preferred way is to have an axonserver.properties or __ _axonserver.yml __**_file which contains the desired configuration parameters. The location of the file should be the current working directory or alternatively can be placed within a "_config"_ subdirectory (relative to the current working directory).

An important note - In case both files are detected by Axon Server, it will read from both.

Command-Line

In case the server is being started using “java –jar ...”, we can also supply individual configuration properties with “-Dproperty=value”

Environment Variable(s)

Configuration values can also be supplied using environment variables. The parameter name should be all in upper case with any kebab-case(-) / camelCase and snake_case(_) substituted with _"_"_

Recommendations

There are some recommendations around Axon Server EE/SE configuration,

  • Use “./axonserver.properties” for common settings.

  • Use “./config/axonserver.properties” for environment/node-specific overrides.

  • Use “-D” or environment variables for one-time settings.

Configuration Properties

A list of all the configuration properties by area is denoted below. Unless explicitly specified all property names are to be prefixed with "axoniq.axonserver"
