Enable eventlet backdoor, using the provided path as a unix socket that can receive connections. This option is mutually exclusive with backdoor_port in that only one should be provided. If both are provided then the existence of this option overrides the usage of that option. Inside the path {pid} will be replaced with the PID of the current process.

sql_idle_timeout = 3600

integer value

Period in seconds after which SQLAlchemy should reestablish its connection to the database. MySQL uses a default wait_timeout of 8 hours, after which it will drop idle connections. This can result in MySQL Gone Away exceptions. If you notice this, you can lower this value to ensure that SQLAlchemy reconnects before MySQL can drop the connection.

integer value

The maximum overflow size of the pool used by SQLAlchemy. When the number of checked-out connections reaches the size set in sql_pool_size, additional connections will be returned up to this limit. It follows then that the total number of simultaneous connections the pool will allow is sql_pool_size + sql_pool_max_overflow. Can be set to -1 to indicate no overflow limit, so no limit will be placed on the total number of concurrent connections. Comment out to allow SQLAlchemy to select the default.

sql_pool_size = 5

integer value

Size of pool used by SQLAlchemy. This is the largest number of connections that will be kept persistently in the pool. Can be set to 0 to indicate no size limit. To disable pooling, use a NullPool with sql_pool_class instead. Comment out to allow SQLAlchemy to select the default.

use_stderr = False

boolean value

Log output to standard error. This option is ignored if log_config_append is set.

Unauthenticated clients are redirected to this endpoint to authenticate. Although this endpoint should ideally be unversioned, client support in the wild varies. If you’re using a versioned v2 endpoint here, then this should not be the same endpoint the service user utilizes for validating tokens, because normal end users may not be able to reach that endpoint. This option is deprecated in favor of www_authenticate_uri and will be removed in the S release.

(Optional) If defined, indicate whether token data should be authenticated or authenticated and encrypted. If MAC, token data is authenticated (with HMAC) in the cache. If ENCRYPT, token data is encrypted and authenticated in the cache. If the value is not one of these options or empty, auth_token will raise an exception on initialization.

memcache_use_advanced_pool = False

boolean value

(Optional) Use the advanced (eventlet safe) memcached client pool. The advanced pool will only work under python 2.x.

memcached_servers = None

list value

Optionally specify a list of memcached server(s) to use for caching. If left undefined, tokens will instead be cached in-process.

region_name = None

string value

The region in which the identity server can be found.

service_token_roles = ['service']

list value

Service tokens are allowed to request that an expired token can be used and so this check should tightly control that only actual services should be sending this token. Roles here are applied as an ANY check so any role in this list must be present. For backwards compatibility reasons this currently only affects the allow_expired check.
