PACE Configuration

PACE is a Spring Boot Application configured via its standard mechanism. We typically use an application.yaml in a /config subdirectory of the working directory the PACE server was started.

The schema of the configuration file is defined by the Kotlin source code.


An outline of the yaml file is as follows.

spring # The basis of the PACE web application.
  datasource # This is where PACE stores its own data (such as the stored
             # data-policies, the global policies etc.)
    url # This is the jdbc url to the PACE database.
        # Example: `jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/pace`. The last part
        # of the url is the name of the database.
    hikari # Hikari is the standard database connection pool used by Spring applications.
      username # How to connect to the database.
      password #
      schema # Which database schema is used to create the tables that PACE needs.
             # A typical value is `public`.
logging #  Spring logging [configuration][spring-logging]. You can skip this section completely.
  level # [DEBUG|INFO|WARN|OFF][spring-logging]
app #  This is the actual PACE configuration
  processing # Defines a list of processing platforms that PACE connects to on startup.
  catalogs #  Defines a list of data catalogs that PACE connects to on startup.
      looseTagMatch #  [See here](../global-policies/global-transforms/

Processing Platforms Configuration

Each of the supported processing platforms has a different configuration format. Every configuration must have a distinct id that can be any non-empty string.
