Property Default Description
prefix (String) null A string used to prefix all used keys (e.g. namespace:test). Please be aware that the keys command will not be prefixed. The keyscommand has a "pattern" as argument and no key and it would be impossible to determine the existing keys in Redis if this would be prefixed.
