Prior to the VMware Cloud Director Container Service Extension server installation, it is necessary to complete a YAML configuration file, that controls the server installation and runtime.

In the VMware Cloud Director Container Service Extension client, you can generate the following skeleton file:

cse sample -o config.yaml

The output of the command varies depending whether the flag --legacy-mode is used with the command or not.

If the flag is not present, sample for mqtt bus type generates, otherwise amqp bus type sample generates.

Table 1. Supported bus types

VMware Cloud Director Version

Supported Bus Types

VMware Cloud Director 10.1

amqp

VMware Cloud Director 10.2

amqp and mqtt

VMware Cloud Director 10.3

mqtt

VMware Cloud Director 10.4

To add values from your VMware Cloud Director installation, edit this file.

The following example shows a configuration file with sample values configured:

# Only one of the amqp or mqtt sections should be present.

#  exchange: cse-ext
