Configuration Settings

To configure Humio's basic functionality, you'll need to set environment variables in the Humio configuration file, server.conf in the /etc/humio directory or the humio-config.env file.

For a complete list of all of the variables, see Environment Variables.

When running Humio in Docker, you can pass set the --env-file= flag and keep your configuration in a file. For a quick introduction to setting configuration options, see the documentation on running Docker. Docker only loads the environment file when the container is initially created. If you make changes to the settings in your environment file, simply stopping and starting the container will not work. You need to docker rm the container and docker run it again to pick up changes.
