Default variable details

Some of debops.redis default variables have more extensive configuration than simple strings or lists, here you can find documentation and examples for them.


The Redis Server and Sentinel configuration is represented by a YAML dictionary. Each key of this dictionary is a parameter name, and each value is that parameter value.

The parameter values can be normal strings, integers, True and False booleans, or lists which are joined together with a space separator. If a value is empty, that parameter will not be present in the generated configuration file.

The role provides multiple variables which can be used on different inventory levels for better control over Redis parameters. The redis__server_combined_configuration for Redis Server, and redis__sentinel_combined_configuration for Redis Sentinel combine these YAML dictionaries together and determine the order in which variables "mask" the previous parameters.

Consult the Redis example configuration files to see supported parameters and their values.


This is the list of Redis master servers which the Redis Sentinel cluster should monitor. Each entry is a YAML dictionary that describes the configuration of a particular "monitor". The important parameters that configure a Sentinel monitor are:

Required. Name of the Redis Sentinel monitor to use. It should be short and it should only contain alphanumeric characters, as well as -_. punctuation.
Required. The DNS hostname or IP address of the Redis master server to monitor.
Required. The TCP port on which the Redis master server listens for connections.
Required. Number of Redis Sentinel instances in the cluster which are required to maintain a quorum.

Other parameters specified in a given monitor entry will be treated as that monitor parameters and parsed accordingly. See the Redis Sentinel example configuration file for their documentation.
