Hello @José Silva ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As Linux runners already run in a docker container, I'm afraid it wouldn't be possible to add it to a docker image.

However, in case what you are trying to achieve is to execute the runners' container in a container orchestrator like Kubernetes or AWS EKS, it is possible and we have an example of how to set up your pipeline runner in Kubernetes in the documentation below : 

You are also welcome to take a look at the following article that has more in-depth steps on how to use runners in Kubernetes: 

Hope that helps! Let me know in case you have any questions.

Thank you, @José Silva .

Kind regards,

Patrik S
