This is an example policy server that can be used to provide avatars and service configuration to a pexip mcu deployment. It's a python twisted server that stores configuration in a redis db. There is a simple angularjs administration interface available at
ianmorty/policy-ui. The services can also be fronted with a reverse proxy e.g.
Example run command:
docker run -d -e "VIRTUAL_HOST=policy.local" -t -i ianmorty/policy /sbin/my_init -- bash -l
policy.local will resolve to the IP of the docker host (if using boot2docker, run
boot2docker ip to see the actual IP used)
Editing your local hosts file is usually sufficient to get this working along with the suggested reverse proxy command:
docker run -d -p 80:80 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock jwilder/nginx-proxy and then visiting
ui.local in your browser.
You can optionally connect to an LDAP server to lookup avatars too. Simply add your credentials and search/base dn via environment variables as follows:
- LDAP_BASE_DN (default:
- LDAP_SEARCH_FIELD (default
- LDAP_IMAGE_FIELD (default
docker run -d -e "VIRTUAL_HOST=policy.local" -e "LDAP_SERVER_ADDRESS=ldaps://127.0.0.1" -e "LDAP_USERNAME=PEXIP\bob" -e "LDAP_PASSWORD=footle" -t -i ianmorty/policy /sbin/my_init -- bash -l
