Managing the configuration

Manage DSE configuration using a mounted volume or environment variables.

Manage the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) configuration using one of the following options:

  • The DSE configuration volume to get configuration files from a mounted host directory without replacing or customizing configuration file in the container.
  • Environment variables to change the configuration at runtime.
  • Docker file or directory volume mounts.
  • Docker overlay file system.
Note: DSE uses the default values defined for the environment variables unless explicitly set at runtime. Custom configuration files will override the default or explicitly set environment variables.
