In this section, we learn how to configure OpenCTI to have it tailored to our production and development needs.

Here are the configuration keys, for both Docker (environment variables) and manual deployment.

The equivalent of a config variable in environment variables is the usage of a double underscores (__) for a level of config. Example: "providers": { "ldap": { "strategy": "LdapStrategy" } } will become PROVIDERS__LDAP__STRATEGY=LdapStrategy
