Planning the Docker container startup

When you deploy a container from an HCL provided image, an helper script determines the configurations to use while starting up the container.

By understanding the start up process of these Docker containers, you can learn how to customize the configurations to meet your needs and integrate with your container infrastructure to support your production environment. This information is also important if you choose to build a continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline to streamline the deployment process. Your pipeline needs to be able to retrieve these environment configuration values and pass the values to each Docker container that is started.
