Introduction to Abiquo Properties

Abiquo uses a system based on Java properties that is flexible and easy to configure.

Configuration options are grouped in the file /opt/abiquo/config/ on each server of the Abiquo platform (Abiquo Server, Remote Services, V2V Services). The Abiquo Installer will create configuration files for your installation and example configuration files can be found in the directory /opt/abiquo/config/examples. If you wish to change the configuration options, add the properties you wish to change to your file and specify the new values. 

The tables below contain all the configuration options that can be modified and their default values as set by Abiquo. The default values for properties are used within the Abiquo platform if you do not set the properties. However, some default configuration options may also be set outside of the Abiquo platform, for example, in the hypervisor. 

After modifying this file, check carefully to ensure you have the correct values and no unnecessary whitespace around the properties. You must restart the abiquo-tomcat service for the changes to take effect.

Changes to Properties

Disabled properties

  1. abiquo.api.max.sessions: note that this property has been temporarily disabled and will be enabled in future releases

Open Sessions on Hyper-V

Set abiquo.virtualfactory.openSession=1 as a workaround to problems with concurrent deployments in Hyper-V. From version 3.8.1 this configuration is required by Abiquo for Hyper-V.

Reference properties files attached to this page

These reference files list all the properties that may be configured for each profile. Note that these files are versioned by date and new properties are not always added for minor versions.

Range: all range values are inclusive

(star)  – New property 
(warning)  – Changed property
(minus) – Deprecated Property

 – Abiquo Server / API
 – Remote Services
 – V2V Remote Services 
 – Outbound API

This table describes the file of the Abiquo platform servers. For example, if a property is marked with   symbol  in the  column, it can be configured in the file of the Abiquo Server/API and Abiquo Monolithic Server.

Abiquo Monolithic Server

An Abiquo Monolithic Server is a single-server install of all or most of the Abiquo platform components, so the properties present on the Abiquo Server and the Remote Service machines may not be necessary or may only need to be added once. For example, Redis properties
