However, the port and path for Prometheus metrics can also be configured via the configuration file in the global configuration section for the application, as follows:

"global": {
  "framework": {
      "metrics": {
          "enabled": true
  "application": {
    "prometheus": {
      "port": 8081,
      "path": "/metrics"
