Does anyone know best practices to add cerbos to a docker-compose file? I’m having issues getting the config.yml file added in 🙂
Copy code
services:
  cerbos:
    image: <http://ghcr.io/cerbos/cerbos:0.25.0|ghcr.io/cerbos/cerbos:0.25.0>
    container_name: cerbos
    volumes:
      - ./illiquid_assets_api/api/cerbos/policies:/policies
    ports:
      - "3592:3592"
      - "3593:3593"
    command: server --config=/
    restart: unless-stopped
• illiquid_assets_api / api / cerbos / config.yml • illiquid_assets_api / api / cerbos / policies / policy.yml

If you put your
config.yaml
under the
./illiquid_assets_api/api/cerbos/config
directory, something like this should work;
Copy code
services:
  cerbos:
    image: <http://ghcr.io/cerbos/cerbos:0.25.0|ghcr.io/cerbos/cerbos:0.25.0>
    container_name: cerbos
    volumes:
      - ./illiquid_assets_api/api/cerbos/config:/config
      - ./illiquid_assets_api/api/cerbos/policies:/policies
    ports:
      - "3592:3592"
      - "3593:3593"
    restart: unless-stopped
    command:
      - "server"
      - "--config"
      - "/config/config.yaml"

It’s a silly issue but seems not to be working still
Copy code
cerbos: error: --config: stat /config/config.yaml: no such file or directory

If you don't have a custom config file (which seems to be the case based on your original Docker compose file) then you don't need to define the
command
field. Just delete that and try again.

Hmm...I don't see anything obviously wrong in it. The file
illiquid_assets_api/api/cerbos/config/config.yaml
, really does exist, right? Is the extension correct (
yaml
vs
yml
is a common mistake) and does it have the correct permissions (i.e. world readable)
