    Docker Options Examples

    • --pull always - ensures that you will always get the newest image
    • --env CODELOGIC_HOST="" - passes an environment variable representing the IP address or hostname of the CodeLogic Server
    • --env AGENT_UUID="1f5d0bbc-0924-4c6f-828c-532627c33178" - passes an environment variable for the agent UUID
    • --env AGENT_PASSWORD="AahlDFNbb0PyU378" - passes an environment variable for the agent password
    • --env SCAN_PATH="/scan" - passes an environment variable for the agent to use when scanning
    • --volume "/tmp/mySimulatedApp:/scan" - mounts the directory /tmp/mySimulatedApp onto the directory /scan so that it is accessible by the docker container
    • - tells docker to download the javascript agent codelogic_javascript:latest from the CodeLogic Server
    • See Docker Documentation for more docker options.

View Scan Results

  • Select the Explorer tab.
  • Expand the application to view items and their dependencies.

Adding Custom Certificate Authorities

When running a server with a self-signed certificate or internal certificate authority the following options can be used to add the certificate authority to the docker image.

  • --volume "/home/<user_dir>/cacerts/:/opt/codelogic/certs" - mounts the directory containing your ca certificates into the docker image.
  • --env NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTS="/opt/codelogic/certs/your-certificate.pem" - loads the certificate authorities from the pem file into the docker image.
