User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/60.0.3112.90 Safari/537.36 Steps to reproduce: I need to validate an external elasticsearch server and then change localhost:9200 to docker_es_1:9200. Docker has depricated linking ports, so would like to use elasticsearch container name or host name Expected results: I would like to be able to set the URL for all test cases, via environment variable if possible, by config file if necessary I am hitting this when porting elasticsearch to 5.5 and updating docker-compose format to version 3. Note: this may be very easy to do today with the python config system, but I am not sure how to do this. I want to override the es_hosts parameter in the dxr.config file used by all tests. [DXR] es_hosts = http://192.168.1.86:9200/
DXR's config system is pre-Docker and so doesn't do anything with env vars. To quickly and dirtily point the tests to another box, edit this line in config.py: Optional('es_hosts', default='http://127.0.0.1:9200/'): …and this line in testing.py: return ElasticSearch('http://127.0.0.1:9200/') I'm sure you could do it somehow within Docker as well. Worst case, you could open an ssh tunnel (http://www.revsys.com/writings/quicktips/ssh-tunnel.html). But I'm sure there is some new Docker feature to replace linking. (I'm a few versions behind, as I haven't been using it lately.)
