Using DevOps hooks

Our DevOps hooks are build-specific scripts that are called, or can be called, by the entrypoint.sh script that's used to start up our product containers.

Use of our DevOps hooks is intended only for DevOps professionals.

The available hooks are built with the DevOps images and can be found in the hooks subdirectory of each product directory in the Docker Builds repository.

In the entrypoint.sh startup script, there is an example (stub) provided for the available hooks for all products.

Warning

It's critical that the supplied hook names be used if you modify entrypoint.sh, for example, to make subtle changes to a server profile.

Using .pre and .post hooks

When DevOps hooks are called during the entrypoint.sh script process, any corresponding .pre and .post hooks are also called.

The .pre and .post extensions allow you to define custom scripts to be executed before or after any hook that is run in the container. You can include any custom .pre and .post hooks in the hooks directory of your server profile.

Hooks with a .pre extension are run before the corresponding hook, and hooks with a .post extension are run after the corresponding hook.

For example, a script named 80-post-start.sh.pre will be run just before the 80-post-start.sh hook starts, and a script named 80-post-start.sh.post will be run just after that hook completes.
