Re: full yaml/json list of all Strimzi configurations?

Jakub Scholz
 

Hi Anthony,

I do not think we have any files like that. It often doesn't make sense to use all the different options or it is even impossible. So we do not maintain any such files. The documentation has the API reference where you can find all the options: https://strimzi.io/docs/operators/latest/using.html#schema_properties

Thanks & Regards
Jakub

This could just be a large YAML or Json file showing all strimzi objects and options or a json schema file etc...
