Static configuration

Lenses requires two configuration files - lenses.conf and security.conf. You need to create them before starting Lenses.

lenses.conf contains the main static configuration options, such as Lenses port or storage configuration details. For a complete list of configuration options please refer to Options reference .

security.conf contains sensitive authentication configuration options.

Lenses docker image and Helm charts create these files automatically at startup.

The configuration format is HOCON - a superset of JSON and properties files. For more information, please check the HOCON design document .

Quick start example 

A quick start example of lenses.conf looks like:

lenses.ip =
lenses.port = 9991

# Directory for local storage (write access needed) - preserve between upgrades
lenses.storage.directory = "/var/lib/lenses/storage"

# PostgreSQL configuration (H2 storage might be used as well,
# see more under `Persistent storage`

A quick start example security.conf looks like:

# A single admin user
lenses.security.user = "admin"
lenses.security.password = "password"
