tracee --config - Define global configuration options for tracee


tracee --config <file>

All flags can be set in the config file, except for the following, which are reserved only for the CLI:

  • --config: This flag itself is reserved for the CLI and should not be set in the config file.
  • --capture
  • --policy
  • --scope
  • --event

Please refer to the documentation for more information on the file format and available configuration options.
