Puppet in Docker : Accessing Puppet Explorer Dashboard.

0 votes

I need to know what's the way to access a puppet explorer dashboard that i have configured on a docker container using a docker-compose.yml file. I have no idea as to how i could access it in a docker container. can somebody please tell me how i can do this?

Here's a part of my docker compose.yml file:

puppetboard:
       image: puppet/puppetboard
       ports:
          - 8000
puppetexplorer:
       image: puppet/puppetexplorer
       ports:
          - 80
       read_only: true

Run docker-compose up to launch the containers. 

Note that you'll see lots of output as the various software launches in parallel.

$ docker-compose up
Creating compose_puppetboard_1
Creating postgres
Creating puppet
Creating compose_puppetexplorer_1
...

One the output from compose stops, in another terminal confirm you have the containers up and running.

$ docker ps                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             ~
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                      COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                              NAMES

910002aa3e6a        puppet/puppetboard         "/usr/bin/gunicorn -b"   2 minutes ago       Up 2 minutes        0.0.0.0:32824->8000/tcp                            compose_puppetboard_1
78bfd7967680        puppet/puppetdb            "dumb-init /docker-en"   2 minutes ago       Up 2 minutes        0.0.0.0:32826->8080/tcp, 0.0.0.0:32825->8081/tcp   compose_puppetdb_1

Note the port number for the puppetexplorer container, in my case 32828. 

If you're running docker locally you should be able to access the dashboard on 0.0.0.0:32824 (your port will likely vary). 

If you're running docker-machine then you can run docker-machine ip to determine the correct IP address. 

Using this you can access you puppet explorer dashboard.
