What is Rundeck?

Check out the Docker Zoo for configuration examples
in Docker Compose!

start with persistent storage

The simplest way to persist data between container starts/upgrades is to
utilize named volumes:
$ docker run --name some-rundeck -v data:/home/rundeck/server/data rundeck/rundeck

ssh keys

You can provide private ssh keys by mounting them into /home/rundeck/.ssh:
$ docker run --name some-rundeck -v /home/protip/.ssh:/home/rundeck/.ssh rundeck/rundeck

Kubernetes users may wish to mount a private key in through the secrets system. See
Kubernetes documentation Use-Case: Pod with ssh keys for details.

Rundeck Key Storage can be used to provide ssh keys to the ssh plugin as well.

control JVM heap allocation

$ docker run -m 1024m

The JVM is configured to use cgroup information to set the max heap allocation size.
The RAM ratio is set to 1, so the JVM will utilize up to about the container limit.

key store security

By defualt keystorage is set to use the database, and the encryption converters are
disabled. To enable encryption, supply a password for one or both of the default converters:


Note: It is not recommended to enable/disable encryption after initial project setup!
Refer to the docs for more information.

user authentication

NOTE: For extra reference and clarity, refer to the official docs.
For example configurations check out the Zoo.

The default setup utilizes the /home/rundeck/server/config/ file. Mount
or otherwise replace this file to manage further users through this method.

There is initial support for composing the JAAS modules talk about in the docks.
The convention for listing the modules to use in environment variables:


Config keys are located under:


By convention the module name matches the name in the docs, and the config keys match
the config options listed in the docs uppercase, and all one word.

Environment Variables


Controls the base URL the app will use for links, redirects, etc.
This is the URL users will use to access the site.


This is the address or hostname the application will attempt to bind to within
the container.


Defaults to jdbc:h2:file:/home/rundeck/server/data/grailsdb;MVCC=true. The default configuration utilizes an h2 file for data storage.


Set this if using an alternative backend from h2.

  • org.postgresql.Driver
  • org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver
  • com.mysql.jdbc.Driver




The default console strategy configures log4j to send all output to stdout
to be collected by the container logging driver.

Set to FILE to log into /home/rundeck/server/logs .


Set to anything enables audit logging. This can be very verbose so use with caution.



Configuration options for key storage providers and converts. These map to the
Storage Facility Docs.
