## List of settings that can be accessed via API calls

In general, all settings are optional. Certain settings though, if enabled, will
require other settings to be set in order to function properly. These requirements
are listed in the descriptions of the relevant settings.

| Attribute | Type | Required | Description |
| --------- | ---- | :------: | ----------- |
| `admin_notification_email`               | string           | no                                   | Abuse reports will be sent to this address if it is set. Abuse reports are always available in the admin area. |
| `after_sign_out_path`                    | string           | no                                   | Where to redirect users after logout. |
| `after_sign_up_text`                     | string           | no                                   | Text shown to the user after signing up |
| `akismet_api_key`                        | string           | required by: `akismet_enabled`       | API key for akismet spam protection. |
| `akismet_enabled`                        | boolean          | no                                   | (**If enabled, requires:** `akismet_api_key`) Enable or disable akismet spam protection. |

| `container_registry_token_expire_delay`  | integer          | no                                   | Container Registry token duration in minutes. |

| `default_projects_limit`                 | integer          | no                                   | Project limit per user. Default is `100000`. |
