Configure Persistence without file


Is there a chance to configure any persistence without a file in conf/persistence/ ?
I mean e.g. at compile time, with a properties file or whatever?

I have the same question :slight_smile:
From what I have seen: It seems not…
I checked /var/lib/openhab2/config/org/eclipse/smarthome/persistence.config and there is no reference to a file (to /var/lib/openhab2/etc/) in there

I would like also to understand where does OH2 store info that are loaded from the /etc/openhab2/persistence/mapdb.persist file (for example).

Maybe it doesn’t “copy” and store the info but just uses that file.

Check out
It’s description says “allows a programmatically configuration of persistence services” - so you should be able to create a bundle that provides a specific configuration for your needs.

Correct, that is already a config file, so no need to copy it anywhere else!

I also tried to get into that mechanism of loading .persist-Files which ends in a very deep dive. :slight_smile:

Thanks Kai, thats what I needed!
