Some changes in IRIS configuration require a restart of IRIS.
This is no big issue as long as I have access to the server command line with sufficient privileges.

In a container, this is not always given.
Stopping IRIS from the terminal/session prompt is no problem.
But the restart after is.  

Note1: container start-stop is no option as it might be removed by option --rm in docker run
Note2: the target is linux (manly in docker).  Windows is excluded

I'm using Docker and I don't get how you create new folders in the container.

I'm using Docker on Windows running the iris health community.

I want to create 2 folders on the instance and be adding files to it; I must be missing something as i can't see how this gets easily managed?

May retry just downloading the main community HS edition not through docker but could how to amend the error

I'm testing IRIS 2020.4 Preview with preview key.

I've access to the management portal but I can't connect with Studio.

This is my docker-command : docker run --name my-iris --detach --publish 9091:51773 --publish 9092:52773 --volume C:\Docker\iris_external:/external –-volume C:\Docker\iris_durable:/durable –-env ISC_DATA_DIRECTORY=/durable/irissys --key /external/iris.key --password-file /external/password.txt

I notice that Caché Direct is disabled by the license.

Hi everyone, 

I'm trying to build my project on a Linux machine using Docker.

In my development environment, I use Windows 10 Pro with Docker Desktop version Everything works fine, and the docker-compose build runs flawlessly.

But, when I tried to run the same project in a Linux. 
Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.4.0-1025-azure x86_64), docker --version
Docker version 19.03.6, build 369ce74a3c

I am pretty new to Docker and everything around that. I installed the container image from DockerHub and followed the instructions ( Everything is working fine except for the part where I want to change the default password.

Hello Everyone, I am new here and I am learning docker to crack my upcoming interviews. I am confused whats the steps in a deploy process for Dockerized Apps stored In A Git Repo? I am so confused about this, Can anyone know about docker programming. If yes then please suggest some more tips which are useful for my future point.

Thanks Inadvance

Hi Everyone,

I've been working on deploying an IRIS for Health environment in EKS. There is a video session in the InterSystems learning portal about this feature but I have not succeeded in finding the proper documentation and resources to use this in my Kubernetes cluster.

Has this been deprecated/discontinued? Any idea where can I find the resources? Should I stick to StatefulSets instead of using the IrisCluster resource type provided by this operator?

I've always worked with typical web applications (a bunch of code files that sit in a server that connects to an RDS). Now our team is responsible for different IRIS for Health environments. We are currently working to set up the local dev environment and this is the current scenario:

* IRIS for Health local development server is running in a container

* Developers are using VSCode with the objectScript plugin

* GitHub as a version control system for the code and configuration.

Hi Developers!

I stuck with one interesting problem. 

For example, let's use this template repo. If you build this container A using docker-compose and then run the container it exposes REST-API  which is available on:


The question is how to make this REST-API accessible from another docker container B running on the same machine? E.g. with IRIS 2019.4 Community from this repo?

The problem is that for the second container localhost it's something which belongs to container B.

I think I need to set up a network between containers somehow. E.g. using docker-compose. But is there any simpler way?

Error to load IAM image

Hi folks,

I started to play with docker and InterSystems products, it's amazing, but I got the error when try to load the IAM-0.34-1-1.tar.gz image to docker:

[root@CONF-RHEL-DOCKER-IRIS-API admconf]# docker load -i IAM-0.34-1-1.tar.gz
open /var/lib/docker/tmp/docker-import-547148651/IAM/json: no such file or directory

Bellow docker and docker-compose version:

[root@CONF-RHEL-DOCKER-IRIS-API admconf]# docker --version
Docker version 19.03.2, build 6a30dfc

IRIS offers Durable %SYS Directory as a highly useful feature for working with containers.

Before inventing the wheel once more I'd like to know if a similar feature also exists for Caché / Ensemble.
Official documentation is quite silent about.
Though I have some names in mind that might know more about   ( @Luca Ravazzolo @Dmitriy Maslennikov  ?     @Eduard Lebedyuk ?  )

Hi Developers!

Suppose I have a project where I want to build an IRIS container with two different dockerfiles depending on goals.  How can I make it?

The issue is that docker-compose is looking for the file with name 'dockerfile'

Are there any #IF constrations in a dockerfile syntax? 

Commenting works but sometimes it's more than one line.

OAuth server to be deployed on the IRIS learning cloud platform. Clients - one on the other instance of the learning IRIS server, the other client locally on my computer in the container docker.

Both clients get a seemingly correct link (through ##class(%SYS.OAuth2.Authorization).GetAuthorizationCodeEndpoint()) to the login request form:
