- (string) The options passed to the 'curl' command when fetching files from curl_url. For example: '-u <user:password>'
- (string) Location of the IBM product installation file(s). This should be a URL that curl can use to download files. Multiple URLs should be separated by a space. NOTE: cryptographic verification is required and must be specified as part of the URL query string with the key a valid hash algorithms md5, sha256, or sha512, and the the checksum value itself (http://<url>?[md5|sha256|sha512]=<checksum>). For example: 'http://example.com/file.tgz?sha256=<sum>' 'sftp://example.com/file1.tgz?md5=<sum> ftp://example.com/file2.tgz?md5=<sum>'
- (string) Space separated list of extra deb packages to install.
- (string) List of signing keys for install_sources package sources, per charmhelpers standard format (a yaml list of strings encoded as a string). The keys should be the full ASCII armoured GPG public keys. While GPG key ids are also supported and looked up on a keyserver, operators should be aware that this mechanism is insecure. null can be used if a standard package signing key is used that will already be installed on the machine, and for PPA sources where the package signing key is securely retrieved from Launchpad.
- (string) List of extra apt sources, per charm-helpers standard format (a yaml list of strings encoded as a string). Each source may be either a line that can be added directly to sources.list(5), or in the form ppa:<user>/<ppa-name> for adding Personal Package Archives, or a distribution component to enable.
- (boolean) Some IBM charms require acceptance of a license before installation can proceed. If required, setting this option to True indicates that you have read and accepted the IBM terms and conditions found in the license file referenced by the charm.
- (string) The status of service-affecting packages will be set to this value in the dpkg database. Valid values are "install" and "hold".
