This folder contains an example docker-compose.yml which can be used to start Eclipse Ditto with its backing Database – MongoDB – and a reverse proxy – nginx – in front of the HTTP and WebSocket API.

Eclipse Ditto :: Docker

Source: https://github.com/eclipse/ditto/blob/master/deployment/docker/README.md

Configure nginx

The nginx’s configuration is located in the nginx.conf file and contains a “Basic authentication” for accessing the HTTP and WebSocket API. The users for this sample authentication are configured in the nginx.httpasswd file also located in this directory.

In order to add a new entry to this file, use the “openssl passwd” tool to create a hashed password:

openssl passwd -quiet
 Password: <enter password>
 Verifying - Password: <enter password>

Append the printed hash in the nginx.httpasswd file placing the username who shall receive this password in front like this:


Configuration of the services

You may configure each service via passing variables to the java VM in the entrypoint section for each service.

# Alternative approach for configuration of the service
command: java -Dditto.gateway.authentication.devops.password=foobar -jar starter.jar

To get a list of available configuration options you may retrieve them from a running instance via:

# Substitute gateway with the service you are interested in
curl http://devops:foobar@localhost:8080/devops/config/gateway/?path=ditto

Or by going through the configuration files in this repository e.g. /services/gateway/starter/src/main/resources/gateway.conf.
