Disable click outside of bootstrap model area to close modal

I am making a bootstrap website, with a couple of Bootstrap 'Modals'.
I'm trying to customize some of the default features.

Problem is this;
You can close the modal by clicking on the background.
Is there anyway to disable this feature?
On specifc modals only?

On Options chapter, in the page you linked, you can see the backdrop option. Passing this option with value 'static' will prevent closing the modal.
As @PedroVagner pointed on comments, you also can pass {keyboard: false} to prevent closing the modal by pressing Esc.

If you opening the modal by js use:

$('#myModal').modal({backdrop: 'static', keyboard: false})  

If you are using data attributes, use:

 <button data-target="#myModal" data-toggle="modal" data-backdrop="static" data-keyboard="false">
