Use of custom K/V storage for consul


Is it possible to configure consul to not use its own built-in KV storage but let’s say etcd instance already existing on the node consul is located?
I have tried to search trough the documentation but cannot find any information on it.
Thanks for help and/or ideas.


No, it is not. However Consul only provides its K/V storage as a service to clients, so you are welcome to just choose to not use it, and use etcd instead.

Many thanks for explanation, I thought consul uses it also itself for all the runtime data for service discovery.

Can ignore it then, good to know.
