How to Setup InterSystems IRIS Container to Use OS-Level Authentication Programmatically

Hi Community!

When you run  IRIS container out-of-the-box and connect to it via terminal e.g. with:

docker-compose exec iris bash

You see something like:

root@7b19f545187b:/opt/app# irissession IRIS

Node: 7b19f545187b, Instance: IRIS

Username: ***

Password: ***

USER>

And you enter login and password every time.

How to programmatically setup docker-compose file to have IRIS container with OS authentication enabled? And have the following while entering the terminal:

root@7b19f545187b:/opt/app# irissession IRIS

Node: 7b19f545187b, Instance: IRIS

USER>

To activate OS authentication in your docker image, you can run this code, in %SYS namespace

Do ##class(Security.System).Get(,.p) Set p("AutheEnabled")=p("AutheEnabled")+16 Do ##class(Security.System).Modify(,.p)

If you work with community edition, you can use my image, where you can easily define also user and password for external use.

Running server

$ docker run -d --rm --name iris \
 -p 52773:52773 \
 -e IRIS_USER=test \
 -e IRIS_PASSWORD=test \
 daimor/intersystems-iris:2019.1.0S.111.0-community

Terminal connect

$ docker exec -it iris iris session iris

Node: 413a4da758e7, Instance: IRIS

USER>write $username
root
USER>write $roles
%All

Or with docker-compose, something like this

  iris:
    image: daimor/intersystems-iris:2019.1.0S.111.0-community
    ports:
      - 52773:52773
    environment:
      IRIS_USER: ${IRIS_PASSWORD:-test}
      IRIS_PASSWORD: ${IRIS_PASSWORD:-test}
