This document describes OpenMetadata Server Configuration
By default, the OpenMetadata server runs on port 8585. It uses Jetty Server. The above config can be changed to make it run on a different port. Once you have updated the port details in config restart the server.
OpenMetadata supports MySQL or Postgres as the database. The database configurations and connection strings must be as specified below.
The section below refers to the database connection details to MySQL database. We recommend you create a MySQL user with a strong password and update this section accordingly.
The section below refers to the database connection details to Postgres database. OpenMetadata uses stored generated columns which is supported in Postgres 12. Ensure that you have Postgres 12 or a later version. We recommend you create a Postgres user with a strong password and update this section accordingly.
ElasticSearch is one of the pre-requisites to run OpenMetadata. Default configuration expects a single instance of ElasticSearch running on the local machine. Please make sure you update it with your production elastic search.
EventHandler configuration is optional. It will update the AuditLog in MySQL DB and also ElasticSearch indexes whenever any entity is updated either through UI or API interactions. We recommend you leave it there as it enhances the user experience.
Healthcheck API provides an API endpoint to check the OpenMetadata server health. We recommend in production settings to use this API to monitor the health of your OpenMetadata instance. Please tune the above configuration according to your production needs.
Please follow our Enable Security Guide to configure security for your OpenMetadata installation.
