Subject [jira] [Created] (FLUME-2993) Support environment variables in configuration files
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:52:21 GMT
Bessenyei Balázs Donát created FLUME-2993:

             Summary: Support environment variables in configuration files
                 Key: FLUME-2993
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-2993
             Project: Flume
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Configuration
            Reporter: Bessenyei Balázs Donát
            Assignee: Bessenyei Balázs Donát
             Fix For: v1.7.0

Flume does not currently support environment variable interpolation in the properties file

Enabling it would help with
* removing security credentials from config files
* help with copy-pastes in configuration files with multiple agents defined

It is arguably a best practice to store (some) config in the environment variables: https://12factor.net/config
