Disable Services

You can disable the following FindFace Security services should you no longer need them:

  • episodes
  • video archive queue manager
  • webhooks
  • persons

To do so, open the findface-security configuration file and modify the SERVICES section.

sudo vi /etc/findface-security/config.py

# disable unused services to increase
# overall system performance in some cases.
    "ffsecurity": {
        "episodes": True,
        "webhooks": True,
        # use queue manager to prevent drops of video archive events
        "video_archive_events_manager": True,
        "persons": False,

After that, the corresponding tabs will disappear from the web interface.


A tab will remain if there are some entities on it (for example, webhooks on the Webhooks tab). However, new artifacts will cease to arrive.
