docker-usergrid

Base docker image to run a Apache usergrid_ BaaS.

Used elements of tutum-docker-tomcat as Tomcat build manifest.

Image tags

    gaborwnuk/usergrid:latest

Usage

First of all - You need Cassandra. If You don't have working instance already, installation using docker is pretty straightforward.

docker run -p 9042:9042 -d --name cass1 poklet/cassandra

Installation from repository only: to create the image gaborwnuk/usergrid, execute the following command on the docker-usergrid folder:

docker build -t gaborwnuk/usergrid .

To run the image and bind to port :

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 --link cass1:cassandra gaborwnuk/usergrid

The first time that you run your container, a new user admin with all privileges
will be created in Tomcat with a random password. To get the password, check the logs
of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

=> Creating and admin user with a random password in Tomcat ...
=> Done!
=> Creating Apache usergrid_ properties ...
=> Done!
========================================================================
You can now configure to this Tomcat server using:

    admin:rGlsLYtiPce2

In this case, rGlsLYtiPce2 is the password allocated to the admin user for Tomcat admin console.

Important: default username and password for usergrid_ is superuser and VDprvB6bt7ebDW. This can be changed by customising Dockerfile to suit Your needs and add custom usergrid-*.properties file. Without modifications this should not be used on production.

You can now check usergrid_ status with:

curl http://127.0.0.1:8080/status

Probably the most important value here is:

"cassandraAvailable" : true

If Your value is false - usergrid_ won't work as Cassandra instance is required as storage database. Check docker-cassandra.

To fully configure Your Cassandra/usergrid_ , just:

curl http://superuser:VDprvB6bt7ebDW@127.0.0.1:8080/system/database/setup

After few moments You should receive following response:

{
  "action" : "cassandra setup",
  "status" : "ok",
  "timestamp" : 1409052433807,
  "duration" : 7442
}

Now You're good to go - create Your account:

curl -X POST  \
     -d 'organization=gwp&username=admin&name=Admin&email=admin@example.com&password=password' \
     http://127.0.0.1:8080/management/organizations

Authenticate and get token:

curl "http://127.0.0.1:8080/management/token?grant_type=password&username=admin&password=password"

You should receive authentication feedback with token used in all following REST requests, ie:

curl -H "Authorization: Bearer YWMtA6C8Ti0bEeSpsz3neosJlAAAAUg2TNNzocqs39RLNbd_V5gr2jaoUacix0E" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -X POST -d '{ "name":"myapp" }' \
     http://127.0.0.1:8080/management/orgs/gwp/apps

And so on.

From now on, if You're interested on how to secure Your usergrid_ instance, refer to https://github.com/apache/incubator-usergrid/tree/master/stack and https://usergrid.incubator.apache.org/docs/.

Customising usergrid_ docker container

If you want to use a preset password instead of a random generated one, you can
set the environment variable TOMCAT_PASS to your specific password when running the container:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -e TOMCAT_PASS="mypass" gaborwnuk/usergrid

Following environmental variables are available:

  • TOMCAT_PASS (Optional, default: random generated) - Tomcat instance password, use if required. You won't probably need this.
