This guide describes the configuration properties for all the eagle-i applications, with the following exceptions:

  • Repository application (configuration properties can be found here)
  • Repository for the public SPARQL endpoint (configuration properties can be found Public SPARQL Endpoint)
    • Note: There are optional properties for this component listed in this guide.

The properties described here are to be used in the eagle-i-apps.properties file. This file should be located in the eagle-i configuration directory, e.g. /opt/eaglei/conf.

We strongly recommend that any properties containing credentials should be placed in eagle-i-apps-credentials.properties and the file should be placed in a directory within the classpath and only accessible by a root user, e.g. /opt/eaglei/.config.

This guide has been updated to reflect changes with the 3.0.4 release.
