I’m using docker executor with DinD, and I was wondering if it’s possible to send commands to a container already running in the background.
Hello @jaquense , since you are running a Docker containter you can use docker commands.
List the running containers to get the containner id, run :
$ docker ps
With “docker ps” command you will get a list of running container with this informations: CONTAINER ID, IMAGE, COMMAND, CREATED, STATUS, PORTS, NAMES
Get the ID and run this command, you will get a terminal within the container and run your commands:
$ docker exec -it CONTAINER_ID /bin/bash
Ok, but is it possible to send a command, like for example
pwd, in the same instruction?
I don’t want to type the command since it’s something that the CI server pipeline will take care of.
$ docker exec -it CONTAINER_ID pwd
