Profile Configuration

For creating custom profiles, see Create Custom Profiles.

Available variables

These variables can be used in pulp_config.env and compose.yaml:

  • API_HOST: hostname where pulp expects to run (default: localhost).
  • API_PORT: port that pulp expects to run on. This port will also get exposed on the pulp container (default: 5001).
  • API_PROTOCOL: can be http or https (default: http).
  • NGINX_SSL_PORT: the port on which Nginx listens to https traffic (default: 443). API_PROTOCOL needs to be https.
  • NGINX_PORT: the port on which Nginx listens to http traffic. Note: the functional tests won't work correctly if this is different from API_PORT. (default: 5001, or the value of API_PORT).
  • DEV_SOURCE_PATH: colon separated list of python dependencies to include from source.
  • COMPOSE_PROFILE: colon separated list of profiles.
  • DJANGO_SUPERUSER_USERNAME: username for the super user (default: admin).
  • DJANGO_SUPERUSER_PASSWORD: password for the super user (default: password).
  • COMPOSE_PROJECT_NAME: the project name passed to podman-compose. Use this when running multiple environments to keep containers and volumes separate (default: oci_env).
  • SRC_DIR: path to load source code from. Set this if you want to use a different set of git checkouts with your environment (default: oci_env/../)


  • Variables are templated using pythons "{VAR}".template(VAR="my_var") function, so they must be referenced as {VARIABLE_NAME} in environment and compose files.
  • Profiles can use variables outside of this list as well. They are just required to be defined in the user's compose.env file or in the profile's (or its parents) profile_default_config.env file.
