Crowd on docker / kubernetes

Hi

We would like to run crowd on docker.  Therefore we've been looking at existing dockerfiles.  But is seems that they all force us to pass the installation steps for crowd.

As kubernetes is allowed to take down any pod when it wants, this seems no solid solution for us. 

Do you have any pointers / tricks to get a crowd installation fully scripted so it can run in docker without any manual interventions on creation?

Kind regards

Koen

Hey @Koen Dehaen 

Crowd is (should) be one of the easier Atlassian applications to run in a container given state etc is all stored in the database and cluster nodes are also managed by themselves (as opposed to Jira where you need to remove a cluster node via a REST call).

Have you tried crafting your own container? I'd only expect it to need a clean base, java, your current Crowd application, crowd home directory structure, customize the server.xml, /etc/environment (JAVA_OPTS such as xms/xmx and set the cluster.node.name for example), crowd.cfg.xml and then nginx/apache if you're running a reverse proxy

Getting Crowd containerized for our environment is up the top of our 2020 list, so keen to hear how you get on and I'll be happy to feed back as well
