Beside of the number of common for all stack types management options (such as server restart
, usage statistics
, etc), Docker containers have a number of specific additional options, that allows to operate with them more effectively.
Docker Containers Update
In case you need to change the version of the already deployed Docker image, e.g. re-run it with the latest tag, just use the corresponding Redeploy containers button next to the required image string.
Such Docker Update
operation can be applied to the whole scope of containers within a particular layer (to redeploy all of them at once one-by-one), as well as for a separate instance.
UI for Docker Container Configuration
Jelastic provides an easy access to the most common Docker containers settings right through the dashboard. Expand the Additionally list next to the corresponding environment layer and select the required option:
The following settings are available (use the linked guides for the detailed explanation on each tool usage):
All of the stated configurations will be automatically applied to the whole set of nodes on a layer by default.
Reset Docker Container Access Credentials
All Docker containers are completely isolated independent instances, so their connection credentials also differs. You’ll receive them via email after each container creation.
In case of the necessity, Jelastic provides a convenient way to restore these credentials either for a particular container or for the whole node set of nodes of your horizontally scaled server.
For that, hover over the corresponding instance in topology, expand the Additionally list and select the Reset password option. The same as during creation, new credentials will be sent to your email.
