salt.modules.dockerng

Management of Docker Containers

New in version 2015.8.0.

Why Make a Second Docker Execution Module?

We have received a lot of feedback on our Docker support. In the process of implementing recommended improvements, it became obvious that major changes needed to be made to the functions and return data. In the end, a complete rewrite was done.

The changes being too significant, it was decided that making a separate execution module and state module (called dockerng) would be the best option. This will give users a couple release cycles to modify their scripts, SLS files, etc. to use the new functionality, rather than forcing users to change everything immediately.

In the Nitrogen release of Salt (due in 2017), this execution module will take the place of the default Docker execution module, and backwards-compatible naming will be maintained for a couple releases after that to allow users time to replace references to dockerng with docker.

Installation Prerequisites

This execution module requires at least version 1.4.0 of both docker-py and Docker. docker-py can easily be installed using pip.install:

salt myminion pip.install docker-py>=1.4.0

Authentication

To push or pull images, credentials must be configured. By default dockerng will try to get the credentials from the default docker auth file, located under the home directory of the user running the salt-minion (HOME/.docker/config.json). Because a password must be used, it is recommended to place this configuration in Pillar data. If pillar data specifies a registry already present in the default docker auth file, it will override.

The configuration schema is as follows:

docker-registries:
  <registry_url>:
    email: <email_address>
    password: <password>
    username: <username>
    reauth: <boolean>

For example:

docker-registries:
  https://index.docker.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo

Reauth is an optional parameter that forces the docker login to reauthorize using the credentials passed in the pillar data. Defaults to false.

New in version 2016.3.5,2016.11.1.

For example:

docker-registries:
  https://index.docker.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo
    reauth: True

Mulitiple registries can be configured. This can be done in one of two ways. The first way is to configure each registry under the docker-registries pillar key.

docker-registries:
  https://index.foo.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo
  https://index.bar.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo

The second way is to use separate pillar variables ending in -docker-registries:

foo-docker-registries:
  https://index.foo.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo

bar-docker-registries:
  https://index.bar.io/v1/:
    email: foo@foo.com
    password: s3cr3t
    username: foo

Both methods can be combined; any registry configured under docker-registries or *-docker-registries will be detected.

Configuration Options

The following configuration options can be set to fine-tune how Salt uses Docker:

  • docker.url: URL to the docker service (default: local socket).
  • docker.version: API version to use
  • docker.exec_driver: Execution driver to use, one of nsenter, lxc-attach, or docker-exec. See the Executing Commands Within a Running Container section for more details on how this config parameter is used.

These configuration options are retrieved using config.get (click the link for further information).

Executing Commands Within a Running Container

Note

With the release of Docker 1.13.1, the Execution Driver has been removed. Starting in versions 2016.3.6, 2016.11.4, and Nitrogen, Salt defaults to using docker exec to run commands in containers, however for older Salt releases it will be necessary to set the docker.exec_driver config option to either docker-exec or nsenter for Docker versions 1.13.1 and newer.

Multiple methods exist for executing commands within Docker containers:

  • lxc-attach: Default for older versions of docker
  • nsenter: Enters container namespace to run command
  • docker-exec: Native support for executing commands in Docker containers (added in Docker 1.3)

Adding a configuration option (see config.get) called docker.exec_driver will tell Salt which execution driver to use:

docker.exec_driver: docker-exec

If this configuration option is not found, Salt will use the appropriate interface (either nsenter or lxc-attach) based on the Execution Driver value returned from docker info. docker-exec will not be used by default, as it is presently (as of version 1.6.2) only able to execute commands as the effective user of the container. Thus, if a USER directive was used to run as a non-privileged user, docker-exec would be unable to perform the action as root. Salt can still use docker-exec as an execution driver, but must be explicitly configured (as in the example above) to do so at this time.

If possible, try to manually specify the execution driver, as it will save Salt a little work.

This execution module provides functions that shadow those from the cmd module. They are as follows:

This is only used if Salt needs to pull the requested image.

labels

Add Metadata to the container. Can be a list of strings/dictionaries or a dictionary of strings (keys and values).

Example: labels=LABEL1,LABEL2, labels="{'LABEL1': 'value1', 'LABEL2': 'value2'}"

validate_ip_addrs
: True
For parameters which accept IP addresses as input, IP address validation will be performed. To disable, set this to False
binds

Files/directories to bind mount. Each bind mount should be passed in the format <host_path>:<container_path>:<read_only>, where <read_only> is one of rw (for read-write access) or ro (for read-only access). Optionally, the read-only information can be left off the end and the bind mount will be assumed to be read-write. Examples 2 and 3 below are equivalent.

Example 1: binds=/srv/www:/var/www:ro

Example 2: binds=/srv/www:/var/www:rw

Example 3: binds=/srv/www:/var/www

port_bindings

Bind exposed ports which were exposed using the ports argument to dockerng.create. These should be passed in the same way as the --publish argument to the docker run CLI command:

  • ip:hostPort:containerPort - Bind a specific IP and port on the host to a specific port within the container.
  • ip::containerPort - Bind a specific IP and an ephemeral port to a specific port within the container.
  • hostPort:containerPort - Bind a specific port on all of the host's interfaces to a specific port within the container.
  • containerPort - Bind an ephemeral port on all of the host's interfaces to a specific port within the container.

Multiple bindings can be separated by commas, or passed as a Python list. The below two examples are equivalent:

Example 1: port_bindings="5000:5000,2123:2123/udp,8080"

Example 2: port_bindings="['5000:5000', '2123:2123/udp', '8080']"

Note

When configuring bindings for UDP ports, the protocol must be passed in the containerPort value, as seen in the examples above.

lxc_conf

Additional LXC configuration parameters to set before starting the container.

Example: lxc_conf="{lxc.utsname: docker}"

Note

These LXC configuration parameters will only have the desired effect if the container is using the LXC execution driver, which has not been the default for some time.

security_opt

Security configuration for MLS systems such as SELinux and AppArmor.

Example 1: security_opt="apparmor:unconfined"

Example 2: security_opt=["apparmor:unconfined"] security_opt=["apparmor:unconfined", "param2:value2"]

publish_all_ports
: False

Allocates a random host port for each port exposed using the ports argument to dockerng.create.

Example: publish_all_ports=True

Link this container to another. Links should be specified in the format <container_name_or_id>:<link_alias>. Multiple links can be passed, ether as a comma separated list or a Python list.

Example 1: links=mycontainer:myalias, links=web1:link1,web2:link2

Example 2: links="['mycontainer:myalias']" links="['web1:link1', 'web2:link2']"

dns

List of DNS nameservers. Can be passed as a comma-separated list or a Python list.

Example: dns=8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4 or dns="[8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4]"

Note

To skip IP address validation, use validate_ip_addrs=False

dns_search

List of DNS search domains. Can be passed as a comma-separated list or a Python list.

Example: dns_search=foo1.domain.tld,foo2.domain.tld or dns_search="[foo1.domain.tld, foo2.domain.tld]"

volumes_from

Container names or IDs from which the container will get volumes. Can be passed as a comma-separated list or a Python list.

Example: volumes_from=foo, volumes_from=foo,bar, volumes_from="[foo, bar]"

network_mode
: bridge

One of the following:

  • bridge - Creates a new network stack for the container on the docker bridge

  • null - No networking (equivalent of the Docker CLI argument --net=none)

  • container:<name_or_id> - Reuses another container's network stack

  • host - Use the host's network stack inside the container

    Warning

    Using host mode gives the container full access to the hosts system's services (such as D-bus), and is therefore considered insecure.

Example: network_mode=null, network_mode=container:web1

restart_policy

Set a restart policy for the container. Must be passed as a string in the format policy[:retry_count] where policy is one of always or on-failure, and retry_count is an optional limit to the number of retries. The retry count is ignored when using the always restart policy.

Example 1: restart_policy=on-failure:5

Example 2: restart_policy=always

cap_add

List of capabilities to add within the container. Can be passed as a comma-separated list or a Python list. Requires Docker 1.2.0 or newer.

Example: cap_add=SYS_ADMIN,MKNOD, cap_add="[SYS_ADMIN, MKNOD]"

cap_drop

Example: cap_drop=SYS_ADMIN,MKNOD, cap_drop="[SYS_ADMIN, MKNOD]"

extra_hosts

Additional hosts to add to the container's /etc/hosts file. Can be passed as a comma-separated list or a Python list. Requires Docker 1.3.0 or newer.

Example: extra_hosts=web1:10.9.8.7,web2:10.9.8.8

Note

To skip IP address validation, use validate_ip_addrs=False

pid_mode

Set to host to use the host container's PID namespace within the container. Requires Docker 1.5.0 or newer.

Example: pid_mode=host

log_config

Set container's log driver and options

force
: False
If True, and if prune=True, then forcibly remove these images.

RETURN DATA

If prune=False, the return data will be a list of dangling image IDs.

If prune=True, the return data will be a dictionary with each key being the ID of the dangling image, and the following information for each image:

  • Comment - Any error encountered when trying to prune a dangling image

RETURN DATA

A dictionary of container/image information

CLI Example:

salt myminion dockerng.inspect mycontainer

name
Name or ID of image. Specify a specific tag by using the repo:tag notation.
path
Absolute path on the Minion where the image will be exported
overwrite
: False
Unless this option is set to True, then if the destination file exists an error will be raised.
