Details on using the Seq Docker container
If you haven't yet read Getting Started with Docker, we recommend you start there first.
Important environment variables
datalust/seq container can be configured using the following environment variables, passed on the Docker command line as
|Name||Description||Example value||Default value|
|Set to |
|The base URI that Seq will use when generating links back to the Seq server (optional; generally required for OIDC login, alert notifications, and Kubernetes ingress support)|
Setting an initial administrator username and password
A default password for the
admin account can be passed through the
SEQ_FIRSTRUN_ADMINPASSWORD environment variable, or using the
admin account's username can be overridden with the
SEQ_FIRSTRUN_ADMINUSERNAME environment variable.
The default when no password is supplied is to not enable authentication.
This step can only be performed the very first time the container is started. Setting
SEQ_FIRSTRUN_*after this will have no effect.
Full list of supported options
datalust/seq container supports the full range of options documented in the Server Configuration reference.
Options can be specified using the
SEQ_* family of environment variables, the
config set and
secret set commands, or recorded directly in
Seq.json under the mounted data volume.
