Configuration

There are two types of configuration that you'll want to change.

The first one contains your project's sensitive credentials such as passwords, exchange keys, etc. And the second type is the settings of the application itself which are accessible from the dashboard.

Let's take a look at both:

Environment Variables

These config values are also called environment variables. They are stored in a file called .env inside your project. Here are the default values that ship with every project:

PASSWORD=test
APP_PORT=9000

# If not using docker, you probably want to set this to "localhost"
POSTGRES_HOST=postgres
# POSTGRES_HOST=localhost
POSTGRES_NAME=jesse_db
POSTGRES_PORT=5432
POSTGRES_USERNAME=jesse_user
POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password

# If not using docker, you probably want to set this to "localhost"
# REDIS_HOST=localhost
REDIS_HOST=redis
REDIS_PORT=6379
REDIS_PASSWORD=

It is generally a good idea to stop the application before modifying your .env file and start it again after you've made the changes.

Application Settings

At the top-right corner of the dashboard, you'll see a gear icon. Click on it and you'll see a list of settings like this:

settings-optimization

Go ahead change it as you like. Changes are automatically saved which is why there's no "Save" button.

WARNING

Changing the settings will not affect running sessions (if you have any).

Note: you do NOT need to stop and start Jesse itself after changing these settings.
