If conditional in docker file

+4 votes
RUN if [ "$AUTH_MS_PROFILE" = "test" ]; then RUN ["mvn", "verify"]; fi

I'm trying to to have two images for production and testing environments. Now, because I don't need integration test for production env, I'm using build-arg to set dev and test profiles, therefore I require if conditional if the input is test it should test otherwise it should not.

First of all, create a build_internal.sh file and paste all such conditionals to it

if [ "$AUTH_MS_PROFILE" = "test" ]; then 
   mvn verify

Copy this file inside and then run it inside the dockerfile. I you want to try what you were trying then do:

RUN if [ "$AUTH_MS_PROFILE" = "test" ]; then mvn verify ; fi

Try this:

FROM centos:7
ARG arg
RUN if [ "x$arg" = "x" ] ; then echo Argument not provided ; else echo Argument is $arg ; fi

and then build the image as:

docker build -t my_docker .

You can build it this way:

docker build --build-arg HTTP_PROXY= .

Create a bash script:

#!/bin/bash -x

if test -z $1 ; then 
    echo "argument empty"
    echo "Arg not empty: $1"
FROM ...
ARG arg
COPY bash.sh /tmp/  
RUN chmod u+x /tmp/bash.sh && /tmp/bash.sh $arg
