4 Parameters

Cuirass is able to connect to different external services such as postgresql for the database, zabbix for machine monitoring and mastodon for build notifications. As those services often require using secret credentials, Cuirass can be passed a parameter file.

The parameters file can be passed using the parameters command line argument, see Invocation.

Here’s an example parameter file:

(%cuirass-url "")
(%zabbix-url "")
(%mastodon-instance-name "My Instance")
(%mastodon-instance-url "")
(%mastodon-instance-token "secret-token")
