SaltStack Config requires a Redis 5.x database, but Redis 5.0.4 is recommended. The recommended version of Redis is included with the SaltStack Config installer.

Redis is a third-party, open source, in-memory data structure store. It is required for SaltStack Config. Because this is third-party software, be aware of the following:

  • You are responsible for ongoing maintenance and other administrative tasks. For information about Redis database maintenance and administration, see the Redis documentation.
  • Consider getting guidance from your organization’s database administrator, if possible.
