OpenCanary can be used directly (without the Correlator) with daemons supporting the hpfeeds protocol.

To enable hpfeeds add the following to the logging section of settings.json:

"hpfeeds": {
    "class": "opencanary.logger.HpfeedsHandler",
    "host": "",
    "port": 10000,
    "ident": "test",

Environment Variables

You can use environment variables in the configuration file to pass confidential information such as passwords or tokens from the host machine to the application.

For more information, see the [Configuration page](../starting/configuration.rst#environment-variables).
