Subscribe to Data Topics
Step 4: Client config - data topics (Optional)
You can configure which topics for data updates the client will subscribe to. This is great if you want more granularity in your data model, for example:
- Enabling multi-tenancy: you deploy each customer (tenant) with his own OPA agent, each agent's OPAL client will subscribe only to the relevant tenant's topic.
- Sharding large datasets: you split a big data set (i.e: policies based on user attributes and you have many users) to many instances of OPA agent, each agent's OPAL client will subscribe only to the relevant's shard topic.

policy_data (the default).
Use this env var to control which topics the client will subscribe to:
|Env Var Name||Function|
|OPAL_DATA_TOPICS||data topics delimited by comma (i,e: |
