Hi Ivy Team,

I would like to configure Administrators by using Environment variable, I can configure systemdb:url by using IVY_SYSTEMDB_URL. But the structure Administrators config is different:


    Password: "${hash:mySecret}"
    Email: info@localhost.com

Can I create Environment variables like following:


I use Environment variable because I'm running Axon.ivy Engine within Containerized environment, and Environment variable is the suitable way to store configuration.

I could see the Global Variables, Security System face the same issue.

Thank for your support.

Hello vinh, you are spot on, an example of the environment variables is available in our docker examples: https://github.com/ivy-samples/docker-samples/tree/master/ivy-environment-variables

Thanks about the example. It clear for me.

The name of the administrator is part of the environment variable key:

This installs an administrator with name admin and password admin.


This example installs an administrator with name vinh and password 1234

Could be possible when you escape the key. But I'm not sure.

It's quite hard to configure the hole ivy with environment variables. I don't recommend it. If you are in containerized environment like Kubernetes then you better use ConfigMap.

I am using ConfigMaps, I want to separate those configurations into many ConfigMaps, then expose them as environment variables, the only alternative way I know is store the whole ivy.yaml inside a key/value of ConfigMap, I don't know if I could split ivy.yaml into smaller files?

I think it is possible with ConfigMap to split them in smaller files and merge them together "on-the-fly"? If not, then you may start a feature request for the Axon.ivy platform that you are able to split ivy.yaml in multiple files.

Hi Alex, I think merging the ivy.yaml "on-the-fly" is possible, it will require some scripting work. Thank you for a good discussion.
