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.
