Ping Identity DevOps Docker Image - pingdatagovernance

This docker image includes the Ping Identity PingDataGovernance product binaries and associated hook scripts to create and run a PingDataGovernance instance or instances.

  • pingidentity/pingbase - Parent Image

    This image inherits, and can use, Environment Variables from pingidentity/pingbase

  • pingidentity/pingdatacommon - Common Ping files (i.e. hook scripts)

Introducing PingAuthorize™

Starting with the 8.3 release, PingDataGovernance has been renamed to PingAuthorize. Customers are increasingly applying the product to general, externalized, and dynamic authorization use cases, beyond the original privacy and data protection use cases of PingDataGovernance, and Ping Identity has updated the name to reflect the growing trend and application of Dynamic Authorization.

Running a PingDataGovernance container

The easiest way to test a simple standalone image of PingDataGovernance is to cut/paste the following command into a terminal on a machine with docker.

  docker run \
           --name pingdatagovernance \
           --publish 1389:1389 \
           --publish 8443:1443 \
           --detach \
           --env SERVER_PROFILE_URL= \
           --env SERVER_PROFILE_PATH=getting-started/pingdatagovernance \
           --env PING_IDENTITY_DEVOPS_USER \
           --env PING_IDENTITY_DEVOPS_KEY \
           --tmpfs /run/secrets \

You can view the Docker logs with the command:

  docker logs -f pingdatagovernance

You should see the output from a PingDataGovernance install and configuration, ending with a message the the PingDataGovernance has started. After it starts, you will see some typical access logs. Simply Ctrl-C after to stop tailing the logs.
