Sharing Service Configuration

Introduction

The Infinite Scale Sharing service

Default Values

  • Sharing listens on port 9150 by default.

Event Bus Configuration

The Infinite Scale event bus can be configured by a set of environment variables.

  • If you are using a binary installation as described in Binary Setup or Bare Metal with systemd, the address of the event bus OCIS_EVENTS_ENDPOINT is predefined as localhost address without the need for further configuration, but changable on demand.

  • In case of an orchestrated installation like with Docker or Kubernetes, the event bus must be an external service for scalability like a Redis Sentinel cluster or a key-value-store NATS JetStream. Both named stores are supported and also used in Caching and Persistence. The store used is not part of the Infinite Scale installation and must be separately provided and configured.

  • Note that from a configuration point of view, caching and persistence are independent of the event bus configuration.

Note that for each global environment variable, a service-based one might be available additionally. For precedences see Environment Variable Notes. Check the configuration section below.

Without the aim of completeness, see the list of environment variables to configure the event bus:
