Subject: Re: Adding a Config value to Cloudstack

Yes init is destructive. Unfortunately it was the only option that I had. Since it was a Dev
env it was mostly fine.

Be careful with setting the init to false. It does lot more than just adding new configs.
I've found out that the hard way.

At least on our multiple deployments, the default networks were recreated and user_ip_address
table had duplicated ips in them, which i had to remove manually. Not sure if anything else
is (un)affected. Didn't had the time to review what the 'init' actually does.

Yes, I've done exactly what you've shown here Nicolas, make the class

implement Configurable, add the getConfigKeys and created the Param.

However when I reinstall Cloudstack, the startup does not seem to pick up

the newly added config.

As a workaround, I had to reset the "init" value as "false" in the

configuration table for Cloudstack to re-read the config keys. Not the

best  solution.

Hi Syed,

You can do it using ConfigKey class


like this:

   - Define your new configuration as a variable in a class that implements

   Configurable (org.apache.cloudstack.framework.config.Configurable)


   ConfigKey constructor in which you provide type, name, description,



   - Add your new configuration variable to getConfigKeys() return array

You can also check at this link where I had added 2 configurations on

VmwareGuru class:


Hope this helps ;)

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to add a new global config to Cloudstack. I've been

following the instructions mentioned at but

when I reinstall my Cloudstack, I don't see the setting in the

configuration table in Cloudstack. Does anyone has experience in adding

Config values?
