Get the Server Image

Step 1: Get the server image from docker hub

If you run the docker image locally, you need docker installed on your machine.

Run this command to get the image:

docker pull permitio/opal-server

If you run in a cloud environment (e.g: AWS ECS), specify permitio/opal-server in your task definition or equivalent.

Running the opal server container is simply a command of docker run, but we need to pipe to the OPAL server container the necessary configuration it needs via environment variables. The following sections will explain each class of configuration variables and how to set their values, after which we will demonstrate real examples.
