This document explains the DolphinScheduler application configurations according to DolphinScheduler-1.3.x versions.

Directory Structure

Currently, all the configuration files are under [conf ] directory. Please check the following simplified DolphinScheduler installation directories to have a direct view about the position [conf] directory in and configuration files inside. This document only describes DolphinScheduler configurations and other modules are not going into.

10.install_config.conf [DS environment variables configuration script[install/start DS]]

install_config.conf is a bit complicated and is mainly used in the following two places.

  • 1.DS cluster auto installation

System will load configs in the install_config.conf and auto-configure files below, based on the file content when executing ''. Files such as、、、、、、、、 and etc.

  • 2.Startup/shutdown DS cluster

The system will load masters, workers, alertServer, apiServers and other parameters inside the file to startup/shutdown DS cluster.

File content as follows:

# Note:  please escape the character if the file contains special characters such as `.*[]^${}\+?|()@#&`.
#   eg: `[` escape to `\[`

# Database type (DS currently only supports postgresql and mysql)

# Database url & port

# Database name

# Database username

# Database password

# Zookeeper url

# DS installation path, such as '/data1_1T/dolphinscheduler'

# Deployment user
# Note: Deployment user needs 'sudo' privilege and has rights to operate HDFS
#     Root directory must be created by the same user if using HDFS, otherwise permission related issues will be raised.

# Followings are alert-service configs
# Mail server host

# Mail server port

# Mail sender

# Mail user

# Mail password

# Mail supports TLS set true if not set false

# Mail supports SSL set true if not set false. Note: starttlsEnable and sslEnable cannot both set true

# Mail server host, same as mailServerHost

# Specify which resource upload function to use for resources storage such as sql files. And supported options are HDFS, S3 and NONE. HDFS for upload to HDFS and NONE for not using this function.

# if S3, write S3 address. HA, for example: s3a://dolphinscheduler,
# Note: s3 make sure to create the root directory /dolphinscheduler

# If parameter 'resourceStorageType' is S3, following configs are needed:

# If ResourceManager supports HA, then input master and standby node IP or hostname, eg: '192.168.xx.xx,192.168.xx.xx'. Or else ResourceManager run in standalone mode, please set yarnHaIps="" and "" for not using yarn.

# If ResourceManager runs in standalone, then set ResourceManager node ip or hostname, or else remain default.

# Storage path when using HDFS/S3

# HDFS/S3 root user

# Followings are kerberos configs

# Spicify kerberos enable or not

# Kdc krb5 config file path

# Keytab username

# Username keytab path

# API-service port

# All hosts deploy DS

# Ssh port, default 22

# Master service hosts

# All hosts deploy worker service
# Note: Each worker needs to set a worker group name and default name is "default"

#  Host deploy alert-service

# Host deploy API-service
apiServers="ds1" [load environment variables configs]

When using shell to commit tasks, DS will load environment variables inside into the host. Types of tasks involved are: Shell task、Python task、Spark task、Flink task、Datax task and etc.
