Run Curity Using Docker

Run Curity Using Docker



In this tutorial we will use the official Docker image of the Curity Identity Server to run the server locally, using Docker.

Pull the latest image from Docker hub

docker pull curity/idsvr

To use other variants of the container, refer to the details on Docker Hub.

The docker run command

  • Set the admin user password in an environment variable and start the server.
  • The port 6749 is the default port for the admin UI so expose it in the docker run command to access it.
  • The port 8443 is also exposed in this example to prepare for the First Configuration
docker run -it -e PASSWORD=<ADMIN_PASSWORD> -p 6749:6749 -p 8443:8443 curity/idsvr

You can also run in detached mode (by passing -d in the docker run command).

The unattended installer will run in the container when it is starting for the first time, only if a $PASSWORD is set

Once the server is up, you should be able to access the Admin UI in https://localhost:6749/admin Login with the username admin and the password you provided in the run command.

Note: You can also find a more advanced tutorial with docker-compose here


Now Curity is up and running but without any configuration. The next step is to setup the basic profiles and services.
