my rundeck
Full Description


This repository contains the source for the Rundeck docker image.

Image details

  1. Based on debian:jessie
  2. Supervisor, Apache2, and rundeck
  3. No SSH. Use docker exec or nsenter
  4. If RUNDECK_PASSWORD is not supplied, it will be randomly generated and shown via stdout.
  5. Supply the SERVER_URL or else you won't get too far :)
  6. As always, update passwords for pre-installed accounts
  7. I sometimes get connection reset by peer errors when building the Docker image from the Rundeck download URL. Trying again usually works.
