Pass command line arguments to Docker with Ansible
I have a Java socket application that requires a port number as a CLI argument. On my local machine I can run it via:
docker run -d -p 1111:1111 –name
The problem is that I haven’t found a solution to pass the port number when using Ansible (I have a different task that pulls the image). Current task:
– name: Run server
Is there a way to pass the port as a CLI argument? Or is there a simple way to work around this? I’ve though about uploading a new image or using the command module but neither seem like right way to go.
Can’t you use shell module to achieve what you want?
If you can change the image I would recommend to use environment vars instead . That’s supported by the docker module.
- name: Run server docker: name: <name> image: <foo>/<bar> state: reloaded ports: - "1111:1111" links: - "<link>" env: MY_PORT: 1111
