NAME - Target unit configuration



   A unit configuration file whose name ends in ".target" encodes
   information about a target unit of systemd, which is used for grouping
   units and as well-known synchronization points during start-up.

   This unit type has no specific options. See systemd.unit(5) for the
   common options of all unit configuration files. The common
   configuration items are configured in the generic [Unit] and [Install]
   sections. A separate [Target] section does not exist, since no
   target-specific options may be configured.

   Target units do not offer any additional functionality on top of the
   generic functionality provided by units. They exist merely to group
   units via dependencies (useful as boot targets), and to establish
   standardized names for synchronization points used in dependencies
   between units. Among other things, target units are a more flexible
   replacement for SysV runlevels in the classic SysV init system. (And
   for compatibility reasons special target units such as
   exist which are used by the SysV runlevel compatibility code in
   systemd. See systemd.special(7) for details).


   Unless DefaultDependencies= is set to no in either of related units or
   an explicit ordering dependency is already defined, target units will
   implicitly complement all configured dependencies of type Wants= or
   Requires= with dependencies of type After=. Note that Wants= or
   Requires= must be defined in the target unit itself --- if you for
   example define in some.service, the implicit ordering
   will not be added.

   All target units automatically gain Conflicts= dependency against unless DefaultDependencies= is set to no.
