Basic syntax used in configuration files

Configuration parameter are defined using a key/value pair that identifies the configuration parameter name and the value assigned to that parameter. If a configuration parameter is not explicitly set in the configuration file, the Centrify agent assumes a default value for that parameter.

A key/value pair in the configuration file typically takes the following form:

parameter_name: value

where parameter_name is the name of the configuration parameter that describes the component the setting applies to or the purpose of the parameter, and value is the value assigned to that parameter. Variations in the formatting of the key/value pair are allowed. For example, the parameter name can be followed by a colon (:), equal sign (=), or a space:

parameter_name=value
parameter_name value
