Configuring DSE Graph options in the dse.yaml file

Where is the dse.yaml file?

The location of the dse.yaml file depends on the type of installation:

Installation Type Location

Package installations + Installer-Services installations


Tarball installations + Installer-No Services installations


DSE Graph stores cluster-wide options in dse.yaml under the graph: and gremlin-server: keys. In the option names, each period represents a level of indentation within dse.yaml. To modify dse.yaml settings, modify the file on each node in the cluster and restart each node.

Settings in the dse.yaml are node system-level in scope.

To set per-graph, see the Schema API configuration.
