ipsilon.conf — Ipsilon IdP configuration file

Synopsis

/etc/ipsilon/<instancename>/ipsilon.conf

Description

ipsilon.conf is used to set instance-specific configuration options for an Ipsilon instance. It should be stored in a subdirectory representing the instance under the the system configuration directory, normally /etc/ipsilon. For example /etc/ipsilon/idp/ispilon.conf.

Syntax

The configuration options are not case sensitive. The values may be case sensitive, depending on the option.

Blank lines are ignored. Lines beginning with # are comments and are ignored.

Valid lines consist of an option name, an equals sign and a value. Spaces surrounding equals sign are ignored. An option terminates at the end of a line.

Non-string values should not be quoted, the quotes will not be stripped.

# Wrong - don't include quotes with boolean options
verbose = "True"

# Right - Properly formatted options
verbose = True
verbose=True

Options must appear in the section named [global]. There are no other sections defined or used currently.
