Univention Config Registry

3. Univention Config Registry#

The Univention Configuration Registry (UCR) is a local mechanism, which is used on all UCS system roles to consistently configure all services and applications. It consists of a database, were the currently configured values are stored, and a mechanism to trigger certain actions, when values are changed. This is mostly used to create configuration files from templates by filling in the configured values. In addition to using simple place holders its also possible to use Python code for more advanced templates or to call external programs when values are changed. UCR values can also be configured through an UDM policy in Univention directory service (LDAP), which allows values to be set consistently for multiple hosts of a domain.
