taskrc - Configuration details for the task(1) command
task rc:<directory-path>/.taskrc ...
TASKRC=<directory-path>/.taskrc task ...
obtains its configuration data from a file called
. This file is normally located in the user's home directory:
The default location can be overridden using the rc:
$ task rc:<directory-path>/.taskrc
or using the TASKRC environment variable:
$ TASKRC=/tmp/.taskrc task ...
Individual options can be overridden by using the rc.<name>:
attribute when running task:
$ task rc.<name>:<value> ...
$ task rc.<name>=<value> ...
is run without an existing configuration file it will ask
if it should create a default, sample .taskrc
file in the user's home
The .taskrc file follows a very simply syntax defining name/value pairs:
<name> = <value>
There may be whitespace around <name>, '=' and <value>, and it is
ignored. Whitespace within the <value> is left intact. Whitespace is not
permitted in comma-separated lists. The entry must be on a single line, no
continuations. Values support UTF8 as well as JSON encoding, such as \uNNNN.
Note that Taskwarrior is flexible about the values used to represent Boolean
items. You can use "on", "yes", "y",
"1" and "true". Anything else means "off".
There may be whitespace around 'include' and <file>. The file may be an
absolute or relative path, and the special character '~' is expanded to mean
$HOME. The entry must be on a single line, no continuations.
A comment consists of the character '#', and extends from the '#' to the end of
the line. There is no way to comment a multi-line block. There may be blank
Almost every value has a default setting, and an empty .taskrc file is one that
makes use of every default. The contents of the .taskrc file therefore
represent overrides of the default values. To remove a default value
completely there must be an entry like this:
This entry overrides the default value with a blank value.
You can edit your .taskrc file by hand if you wish, or you can use the 'config'
command. To permanently set a value in your .taskrc file, use this command:
$ task config nag "You have more urgent
To delete an entry, use this command:
$ task config nag
Taskwarrior will then use the default value. To explicitly set a value to blank,
and therefore avoid using the default value, use this command:
$ task config nag ""
Taskwarrior will also display all your settings with this command:
$ task show
and in addition, will also perform a check of all the values in the file,
warning you of anything it finds amiss.
The .taskrc can include other files containing configuration settings by using
By using include files you can divide your main configuration file into several
ones containing just the relevant configuration data like colors, etc.
There are two excellent uses of includes in your .taskrc, shown here:
This includes two standard files that are distributed with Taskwarrior, which
define a set of US holidays, and set up a 16-color theme to use, to color the
reports and calendar.
These environment variables override defaults and command line arguments.
- This overrides the default path for the Taskwarrior data
- This overrides the default RC file.
Valid variable names and their default values are:
- This is a path to the directory containing all the
Taskwarrior files. By default, it is set up to be ~/.task, for example:
Note that you can use the ~ shell meta character, which will be
Note that the TASKDATA environment variable overrides this setting.
- Determines whether to use file locking when accessing the
pending.data and completed.data files. Defaults to "on". Solaris
users who store the data files on an NFS mount may need to set locking to
"off". Note that there is danger in setting this value to
"off" - another program (or another instance of task) may write
to the task.pending file at the same time.
- Can be used to temporarily suspend garbage collection (gc),
so that task IDs don't change. Note that this should be used in the form
of a command line override (task rc.gc=off ...), and not permanently used
in the .taskrc file, as this significantly affects performance in the long
- This master control switch enables hook script processing.
The default value is 'on', but certain extensions and environments may
need to disable hooks.
- When set to 'yes' causes the program to exit if the
database (~/.task or rc.data.location or TASKDATA override) is missing.
Default value is 'no'.
- Determines whether to use ioctl to establish the size of
the window you are using, for text wrapping.
- The width of output used when auto-detection support is not
available. Defaults to 80. If set to 0, it is interpreted as infinite
width, therefore with no word-wrapping; this is useful when redirecting
report output to a file for subsequent handling.
- The height of output used when auto-detection support is
not available. Defaults to 24. If set to 0, it is interpreted as infinite
height. This is useful when redirecting charts to a file for subsequent
- Causes the width of the terminal minus one to be used as
the full width. This avoids placing color codes in the last column which
can cause problems for Cygwin users. Default value is 'no'.
- Hyphenates lines when wrapping breaks occur mid-word.
Default value is 'on'.
- Specifies which text editor you wish to use for when the
task edit <ID> command is used. Taskwarrior will first look
for this configuration variable. If found, it is used. Otherwise it will
look for the $VISUAL or $EDITOR environment variables, before it defaults
to using "editor".
- This is the number of lines reserved at the bottom of the
screen for the shell prompt. This is only referenced when 'limit:page' is
- When set to "on" (the default), helpful
explanatory comments are added to all output from Taskwarrior. Setting
this to "off" means that you would see regular output.
The special value "nothing" can be used to eliminate all optional
output, which results in only the formatted data being shown, with nothing
else. This output is most readily parsed and used by shell scripts.
Alternatively, you can specify a comma-separated list of verbosity tokens
that control specific occasions when output is generated. This list may
blank Inserts extra blank lines in output, for clarity
header Messages that appear before report output
footnote Messages that appear after report output
label Column labels on tabular reports
new-id Provides feedback of any new task IDs
new-uuid Provides feedback of any new task UUIDs. Deprecated, to be
merged with new-id.
affected Reports 'N tasks affected' and similar
edit Used the verbose template for the 'edit' command
special Feedback when applying special tags

"affected", "new-id", "new-uuid"
"project" and "unwait" imply "footnote".
Note that the "on" setting is equivalent to all the tokens being
specified, and the "nothing" setting is equivalent to none of
the tokens being specified.
Here are the shortcut equivalents:
Those additional comments are sent to the standard error for header,
footnote and project. The others are sent to standard output.
- May be "yes" or "no", and determines
whether Taskwarrior will ask for confirmation before deleting a task or
performing the undo command. The default value is "yes".
Consider leaving this setting as "yes", for safety.
- An empty filter combined with a write command is
potentially a way to modify all tasks by mistake, and when this is
detected, confirmation is required. Setting this to 'no' means that it is
an error to use a write command with no filter.
- Controls the number of spaces to indent annotations when
shown beneath the description field. The default value is "2".
- Controls the indentation of the entire report output.
Default is "0".
- Controls left and right padding around each row of the
report output. Default is "0".
- Controls padding between columns of the report output.
Default is "1".
- Is a number, defaulting to 3. When this number or greater
of tasks are modified in a single command, confirmation will be required,
regardless of the value of confirmation variable. The special value
bulk=0 is treated as an infinity.
This is useful for preventing large-scale unintended changes.
- nag=You have more urgent tasks.
- This may be a string of text, or blank. It is used as a
prompt when a task is started of completed, when there are other tasks
with a higher urgency. Default value is: 'You have more urgent tasks'. It
is a gentle reminder that you are contradicting your own urgency settings.
- May be yes or no, and determines whether the 'projects'
command lists all the project names you have used, or just the ones used
in active tasks. The default value is "no".
- If set to yes, shows all projects in the summary report,
even if there are no pending tasks. The default value is "no".
- May be yes or no, and determines whether the tab completion
scripts consider all the tag names you have used, or just the ones used in
active tasks. The default value is "no".
- May be yes or no, and determines whether the 'tags' command
lists all the tag names you have used, or just the ones used in active
tasks. The default value is "no".
- May be yes or no, and determines whether columns with no
data for any task are printed. Defaults to no.
- May be yes or no, and determines whether keyword lookup and
substitutions on the description and annotations are done in a case
sensitive way. Defaults to yes on most platforms. Defaults to no on Cygwin
due to older regex library problems with case-insensitivity.
- Controls whether regular expression support is enabled. The
default value is on.
- Sets the xterm window title when reports are run. Defaults
- Sets a preference for infix expressions (1 + 2) or postfix
expressions (1 2 +). Defaults to infix.
- Determines whether the export command encloses the JSON
output in '[...]' and adds ',' after each exported task object to create a
properly-formed JSON array. With json.array=off, export writes raw JSON
objects to STDOUT, one per line. Defaults to on.
- Determines whether the export command encodes dependencies
as an array of string UUIDs, or one comma-separated string. Defaults to
- Taskwarrior shuts off color automatically when the output
is not sent directly to a TTY. For example, this command:
$ task list > file
will not use any color. To override this, use:
$ task rc._forcecolor=yes list > file
- The character or string to show in the start.active column.
Defaults to *.
- The character or string to show in the tag.indicator
column. Defaults to +.
- The character or string to show in the depends.indicator
column. Defaults to +.
- The character or string to show in the
<uda>.indicator column. Defaults to U.
- Controls whether recurrence is enabled, and whether
recurring tasks continue to generate new task instances. Defaults to
- Controls whether changes to recurring tasks propagates to
other child tasks with or without confirmation. A value of 'yes' means
propagate changes without confirmation. A value of 'no' means do not
propagate changes and don't ask for confirmation. A value of 'prompt'
prompts you every time. Defaults to 'prompt'.
- The character or string to show in the recurrence_indicator
column. Defaults to R.
- The number of future recurring tasks to show. Defaults to
1. For example, if a weekly recurring task is added with a due date of
tomorrow, and recurrence.limit is set to 2, then a report will list 2
pending recurring tasks, one for tomorrow, and one for a week from
- When the 'undo' command is run, Taskwarrior presents a
before and after comparison of the data. This can be in either the 'side'
style, which compares values side-by-side in a table, or 'diff' style,
which uses a format similar to the 'diff' command.
- Minimum length of any abbreviated command/value. This means
that "ve", "ver", "vers", "versi",
"versio" will all equate to "version", but
"v" will not. Default is 2.
- Taskwarrior has a debug mode that causes diagnostic output
to be displayed. Typically this is not something anyone would want, but
when reporting a bug, debug output can be useful. It can also help explain
how the command line is being parsed, but the information is displayed in
a developer-friendly, not a user-friendly way.
Turning debug on automatically sets debug.hooks=1, debug.parser=1 and
debug.tls=2 if they do not already have assigned values.
- Controls the hook system diagnostic level. Level 0 means no
diagnostics. Level 1 shows hook calls. Level 2 also shows exit status and
- Controls the parser diagnostic level. Level 0 shows no
diagnostics. Level 1 shows the final parse tree. Level 2 shows the parse
tree from all phases of the parse. Level 3 shows expression evaluation
- Controls the GnuTLS diagnostic level. For 'sync' debugging.
Level 0 means no diagnostics. Level 9 is the highest. Level 2 is a good
setting for debugging.
- When set to '1', will replace all report text with 'xxx'.
This is useful for sharing report output in bug reports. Default value is
- Taskwarrior supports command aliases. This alias provides
an alternate name (rm) for the delete command. You can use aliases to
provide alternate names for any of the commands. Several commands you may
use are actually aliases - the 'history' report, for example, or 'export'.
- dateformat.edit=Y-M-D H:N:S
- dateformat.info=Y-M-D H:N:S
- This is a string of characters that defines how Taskwarrior
formats date values. The precedence order for the configuration variable
is report.X.dateformat then dateformat.report then dateformat for
formatting the due dates in reports. If both report.X.dateformat and
dateformat.report are not set then dateformat will be applied to the date.
Entered dates as well as all other displayed dates in reports are
formatted according to dateformat.
The default value is the ISO-8601 standard: Y-M-D. The string can contain
m minimal-digit month, for example 1 or 12
d minimal-digit day, for example 1 or 30
y two-digit year, for example 09 or 12
D two-digit day, for example 01 or 30
M two-digit month, for example 01 or 12
Y four-digit year, for example 2009 or 2015
a short name of weekday, for example Mon or Wed
A long name of weekday, for example Monday or Wednesday
b short name of month, for example Jan or Aug
B long name of month, for example January or August
v minimal-digit week, for example 3 or 37
V two-digit week, for example 03 or 37
h minimal-digit hour, for example 3 or 21
n minimal-digit minutes, for example 5 or 42
s minimal-digit seconds, for example 7 or 47
H two-digit hour, for example 03 or 21
N two-digit minutes, for example 05 or 42
S two-digit seconds, for example 07 or 47
J three-digit Julian day, for example 023 or 365
j Julian day, for example 23 or 365
The characters 'v', 'V', 'a' and 'A' can only
be used for formatting printed dates (not to parse them).
The string may also contain other characters
to act as spacers, or formatting. Examples for other values of
d/m/Y would use for input and output 24/7/2009
yMD would use for input and output 090724
M-D-Y would use for input and output 07-24-2009
Examples for other values of
a D b Y (V) would emit "Fri 24 Jul 2009 (30)"
A, B D, Y would emit "Friday, July 24, 2009"
wV a Y-M-D would emit "w30 Fri 2009-07-24"
yMD.HN would emit "110124.2342"
m/d/Y H:N would emit "1/24/2011 10:42"
a D b Y H:N:S would emit "Mon 24 Jan 2011 11:19:42"
Undefined fields are put to their minimal
valid values (1 for month and day and 0 for hour, minutes and seconds) when
there is at least one more global date field that is set. Otherwise, they are
set to the corresponding values of "now". For example:
8/1/2013 with m/d/Y implies August 1, 2013 at midnight (inferred)
8/1 20:40 with m/d H:N implies August 1, 2013 (inferred) at 20:40
- Enables ISO-8601 date support. The default value is
- Determines the day a week starts. Valid values are Sunday
or Monday only. The default value is "Sunday".
- Determines if week numbers are displayed when using the
"task calendar" command. The week number is dependent on the day
a week starts. The default value is "yes".
- This is the number of days into the future that define when
a task is considered due, and is colored accordingly. The default value is
- If set to full running "task calendar" will
display the details of tasks with due dates that fall into the calendar
period. The corresponding days will be color-coded in the calendar. If set
to sparse only the corresponding days will be color coded and no details
will be displayed. The displaying of due dates with details is turned off
by setting the variable to none. The default value is "sparse".
- The report to run when displaying the details of tasks with
due dates when running the "task calendar" command. The default
value is "list".
- If "on" the first month in the calendar report is
effectively changed by the offset value specified in
calendar.offset.value. It defaults to "off".
- The offset value to apply to the first month in the
calendar report. The default value is "-1".
- If set to full running "task calendar" will
display holidays in the calendar by color-coding the corresponding days. A
detailed list with the dates and names of the holidays is also shown. If
set to sparse only the days are color-coded and no details on the holidays
will be displayed. The displaying of holidays is turned off by setting the
variable to none. The default value is "none".
- Determines whether the calendar legend is displayed. The
default value is "yes".
- May be yes or no, and determines whether the 'start' and
'stop' commands should record an annotation when being executed. The
default value is "no". The text of the corresponding annotations
is controlled by:
- journal.time.start.annotation=Started task
- The text of the annotation that is recorded when executing
the start command and having set journal.time.
- journal.time.stop.annotation=Stopped task
- The text of the annotation that is recorded when executing
the stop command and having set journal.time.
- When enabled, this setting causes a change log of each task
to be displayed by the 'info' command. Default value is "on".
Holidays are entered either directly in the .taskrc file or via an include file
that is specified in .taskrc. For each holiday the name and the date is
required to be given:
holiday.towel.name=Day of the towel
holiday.sysadmin.name=System Administrator Appreciation Day
Dates are to be entered according to the
setting in the dateformat.holiday variable.
The following holidays are computed
automatically: Good Friday (goodfriday), Easter (easter), Easter Monday
(eastermonday), Ascension (ascension), Pentecost (pentecost). The date for
these holidays is the given keyword:
Note that the Taskwarrior distribution contains example holiday files that can
be included like this:
- Determines how many months the "task calendar"
command renders across the screen. Defaults to however many will fit. If
more months than will fit are specified, Taskwarrior will only show as
many that will fit.
- Determines whether dependency chain violations generate
- Determines whether dependency chain repair requires
- May be "on" or "off". Determines
whether Taskwarrior uses color. When "off", will use dashes
(-----) to underline column headings.
- Determines if font underlines or ASCII dashes should be
used to underline headers, even when color is enabled.
Taskwarrior has a number of coloration rules. They correspond to a particular
attribute of a task, such as it being due, or being active, and specifies the
automatic coloring of that task. A list of valid colors, depending on your
terminal, can be obtained by running the command:
Note that no default values are listed here -
the defaults now correspond to the dark-256.theme (Linux) and dark-16.theme
(other) theme values. The coloration rules are as follows:
Task is due today
Task is started, therefore active.
Task is scheduled, therefore ready for work.
Task has an expiration date.
Task is blocking another in a dependency.
Task is blocked by a dependency.
Task is overdue (due some time prior to now).
Task is coming due.
Task does not have an assigned project.
Task has no tags.
Task has at least one tag.
Task is recurring.
Task is completed.
Task is deleted.
To disable a coloration rule for which there
is a default, set the value to nothing, for example:
By default, colors produced by rules blend.
This has the advantage of conveying additional information, by producing
combinations that are not used by any particular rule directly.
However, color blending can produce highlighting combinations which are not
desired. In such cases, use the following option to disable this
- Can be "yes" or "no". When
"no", disables merging of colors produced by different color
rules. Use if your color scheme produces unpleasing foreground and
See the task-color(5) man pages for color details.
Certain attributes like tags, projects and keywords can have their own
- Colors any task that has the tag X.
- color.project.X=on green
- Colors any task assigned to project X.
- color.keyword.X=on blue
- Colors any task where the description or any annotation
- color.uda.X=on green
- Colors any task that has the user defined attribute X.
- color.uda.X.VALUE=on green
- Colors any task that has the user defined attribute X set
- color.uda.X.none=on green
- Colors any task that does not have the user defined
- color.error=white on red
- Colors any of the error messages.
- color.warning=bold red
- Colors any of the warning messages.
- Colors any of the messages printed prior to the report
- Colors any of the messages printed last.
- color.summary.bar=on green
- Colors the summary progress bar. Should consist of a
- color.summary.background=on black
- Colors the summary progress bar. Should consist of a
- color.calendar.today=black on cyan
- Color of today in calendar.
- color.calendar.due=black on green
- Color of days with due tasks in calendar.
- color.calendar.due.today=black on magenta
- Color of today with due tasks in calendar.
- color.calendar.overdue=black on red
- Color of days with overdue tasks in calendar.
- color.calendar.weekend=bright white on black
- Color of weekend days in calendar.
- color.calendar.holiday=black on bright yellow
- Color of holidays in calendar.
- color.calendar.weeknumber=black on white
- Color of weeknumbers in calendar.
- Colors the report labels. Defaults to not use color.
- Colors the report labels for sort columns. Defaults to
- color.alternate=on rgb253
- Color of alternate tasks. This is to apply a specific color
to every other task in a report, which can make it easier to visually
separate tasks. This is especially useful when tasks are displayed over
multiple lines due to long descriptions or annotations.
- color.history.add=on red
Colors the bars on the ghistory report graphs.
Defaults to red, green and yellow bars.
- color.burndown.pending=on red
Colors the bars on the burndown reports
graphs. Defaults to red, green and yellow bars.
Colors used by the undo command, to indicate
the values both before and after a change that is to be reverted.
Colors the output of the sync command.
This setting specifies the precedence of the
color rules, from highest to lowest. Note that the prefix 'color.' is omitted
(for brevity), and that any wildcard value (color.tag.XXX) is shortened to
'tag.', which places all specific tag rules at the same precedence, again for
Colors all debug output, if enabled.
The urgency calculation uses a polynomial with several terms, each of which has
a configurable coefficient. Those coefficients are:
Urgency coefficient for blocking tasks
Urgency coefficient for blocked tasks
Urgency coefficient for due dates
Urgency coefficient for waiting status
Urgency coefficient for active tasks
Urgency coefficient for scheduled tasks
Urgency coefficient for projects
Urgency coefficient for tags
Urgency coefficient for annotations
Urgency coefficient for the age of tasks
Maximum age in days. After this number of days
has elapsed, the urgency of a task won't increase any more because of
Specific tag coefficient.
Urgency coefficient for tag 'next'.
Specific project coefficient.
Specific description keyword
Presence/absence of UDA data.
Specific value of UDA data.
The coefficients reflect the relative importance of the various terms in the
urgency calculation. These are default values, and may be modified to suit
your preferences, but it is important that you carefully consider any
Not actually a coefficient. When enabled,
blocking tasks inherit the highest urgency value found in the tasks they
block. This is done recursively. It is recommended to set
urgency.blocking.coefficient and urgency.blocked.coefficient to 0.0 in order
for this setting to be the most useful.
- Provides a default project name for the task add
command, if you don't specify one. The default is blank.
- Provides a default due date for the task add
command, if you don't specify one. You can use a date, or a duration value
which is assumed to be relative to 'now'. The default is blank.
- Provides default values for UDA fields when using the
task add command, if you don't specify values. The default is
- Provides a default command that is run every time
Taskwarrior is invoked with no arguments. For example, if set to:
then Taskwarrior will run the
"project:foo list" command if no command is specified. This means
that by merely typing
[task project:foo list]
ID Project Pri Description
1 foo H Design foo
2 foo Build foo
The reports can be customized by using the following configuration variables.
The output columns, their labels and the sort order can be set using the
corresponding variables for each report. Each report name is used as a
"command" name. For example
- task overdue
- The description for report X when running the "task
- This is a comma-separated list of columns and formatting
specifiers. See the command 'task columns' for a full list of options and
- The labels for each column that will be used when
generating report X. The labels are a comma separated list.
- The sort order of the tasks in the generated report X. The
sort order is specified by using the column ids post-fixed by a
"+" for ascending sort order or a "-" for descending
sort order. The sort IDs are separated by commas. For example:
Additionally, after the "+" or "-", there can be a
solidus "/" which indicates that there are breaks after the
column values change. For example:
This sort order now specifies that there is a listing break between each
project. A listing break is simply a blank line, which provides a visual
A special sort value of "none" indicates that no sorting is
required, and tasks will be presented in the order (if any) in which they
- This adds a filter to the report X so that only tasks
matching the filter criteria are displayed in the generated report.
- This adds a dateformat to the report X that will be used by
the "due date" column. If it is not set then dateformat.report
and dateformat will be used in this order. See the DATES section
for details on the sequence placeholders.
- This adds the possibility to control the output of
annotations for a task in a report. Deprecated. Use the description
column with a format (e.g., description.count) instead.
- Taskwarrior comes with a number of predefined reports,
- Lists the most important tasks.
- Lists all pending tasks and all data, matching the
- Lists all tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Short listing of all tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Minimal listing of all tasks matching the specified
- Shows the newest tasks.
- Shows the oldest tasks.
- Lists overdue tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists active tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists completed tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists recurring tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists all waiting tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists all tasks matching the specified criteria.
- Lists all tasks that have dependencies.
User defined attributes (UDAs) are an extension mechanism that allows you to
define new attributes for Taskwarrior to store and display. One such example
is an 'estimate' attribute that could be used to store time estimates
associated with a task. This 'estimate' attribute is not built in to
Taskwarrior, but with a few simple configuration settings you can instruct
Taskwarrior to store this item, and provide access to it for custom reports
This allows you to augment Taskwarrior to accommodate your workflow, or bend the
rules and use Taskwarrior to store and synch data that is not necessarily
One important restriction is that because this is an open system that allows the
definition of any new attribute, Taskwarrior cannot understand the meaning of
that attribute. So while Taskwarrior will faithfully store, modify, report,
sort and filter your UDA, it does not understand anything about it. For
example if you define a UDA named 'estimate', Taskwarrior will not know that
this value is weeks, hours, minutes, money, or some other resource count.
Defines a UDA called '<name>', of the
- uda.<name>.label=<column heading>
Provides a default report label for the UDA
For type 'string' UDAs only, this provides a
comma-separated list of acceptable values. In this example, the '<name>'
UDA may only contain values 'A', 'B', or 'C', but may also contain no value.
Note that the order of the value is important, and denotes the sort order from
highest ('A') to lowest ('C').
Note that a blank value is permitted.
Provides a default value for the UDA called
- Example 'estimate' UDA
- This example shows an 'estimate' UDA that stores specific
values for the size of a task. Note the blank value after 'trivial'.
Note that the value are sorted
huge > large > medium > small > trivial > ''
Context setting is a mechanism which allows the user to set a permanent filter,
thus avoiding the need to specify one filter repeatedly. More details on usage
can be found in the task(1) man page.
The current context is stored in the .taskrc file, along with definitions for
all user provided contexts.
Stores the value of the currently active

Specifies the hostname and port of the
Taskserver. Hostname may be an IPv4 or IPv6 address, or domain. Port is an
User identification for the Taskserver, which
includes a private key.
Specifies the path to the client certificate
used for identification with the Taskserver.
Specifies the path to the client key used for
encrypted communication with the Taskserver.
Specifies the path to the CA certificate in
the event that your Taskserver is using a self-signed certificate.
- taskd.trust=strict|ignore hostname|allow all
This settings allows you to override the trust
level when server certificates are validated. With "allow all", the
server certificate is trusted automatically. With "ignore hostname",
the server certificate is verified but the hostname is ignored. With
"strict", the server certificate is verified. Default is
"strict", which requires full validation.
- Override of the cipher selection. The set of ciphers used
by TLS may be controlled by both server and client. There must be some
