Required

Specify the name of the MySQL table to which MinIO publishes event notifications.

This configuration setting corresponds to the MINIO_NOTIFY_MYSQL_TABLE environment variable.

notify_mysql format

Required

Specify the format of event data written to the MySQL service endpoint. MinIO supports the following values:

namespace

For each bucket event, the MinIO creates a JSON document with the bucket and object name from the event as the document ID and the actual event as part of the document body. Additional updates to that object modify the existing table entry for that object. Similarly, deleting the object also deletes the corresponding table entry.

access

For each bucket event, MinIO creates a JSON document with the event details and appends it to the table with a MySQL-generated random ID. Additional updates to an object result in new index entries, and existing entries remain unmodified.

This configuration setting corresponds to the MINIO_NOTIFY_MYSQL_FORMAT environment variable.

Defaults to off

This environment configuration setting with the MINIO_IDENTITY_LDAP_TLS_SKIP_VERIFY environment variable.

identity_ldap server_insecure

Optional

Specify on to allow unsecured (non-TLS encrypted) connections to the AD/LDAP server.

MinIO sends AD/LDAP user credentials in plain text to the AD/LDAP server, such that enabling TLS is required to prevent reading credentials over the wire. Using this option presents a security risk where any user with access to network traffic can observe the unencrypted plaintext credentials.

Defaults to off.

This environment configuration setting with the MINIO_IDENTITY_LDAP_SERVER_INSECURE environment variable.

The specified URI must match one of the approved redirect / callback URIs on the provider. See the OpenID Authentication Request for more information.

Note

The embedded MinIO Console by default uses a random port number selected at server startup. Start the MinIO server process with the --console-address option to specify a static port number.

This configuration setting corresponds with the MINIO_IDENTITY_OPENID_REDIRECT_URI environment variable.

identity_openid comment

Specify a comment to associate with the OIDC compatible provider configuration.
