Since version 3.2.0 in Bacularis are available two new functions that significantly can speed up configuration process of repeatable parts of Bacula configuration. They are named configs and patterns.

Configs are pieces of Bacula resource configuration like a part of Job, Client, Device or other resource configuration. It can be a couple of directives or even single directive. Having configs created we can apply them to existing Bacula resources by selecting multiple resources and using a bulk apply configs action. This way users can configure many resources and add new directives to them at once. This function is specially useful in medium or large Bacula environments where there are many resources to configure and many repeatable configuration tasks.

Patterns are sets of configs that can be applied to whole Bacula components configuration like Director, File Daemon or Storage Daemon configuration. Configs that are parts of patterns need to have Name directive defined. Configs that are not a part of patterns, can but do not need to have Name directive defined. So, using patterns we can configure Bacula components, add new configuration and modify existing in one repeteable action.

Here you can find the documentation chapter about configs and patterns: [DOCUMENTATION].

We prepared two video guides where you can see how configs and patterns work in practice. We encourage to watch them. They are below.
