Configuration

Details on using the Seq Docker container

Container environment variables

The container can be configured using the following environment variables, passed on the Docker command line as -e NAME=VALUE:

Name

Description

Example

Default value

ACCEPT_EULA

Set to Y to indicate acceptance of the Seq End User License Agreement

Y

N

BASE_URI

If provided, a canonical base URI that Seq will use when generating links back to the Seq server (e.g. for Kubernetes Ingress support)

https://seq.example.com/

Setting a default administrator username and password

A default password for the admin account can be passed through the SEQ_FIRSTRUN_ADMINPASSWORD environment variable, or using the --default-admin-password-stdin argument.

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.

Other server configuration

More options are available by passing config on the command-line, which is forwarded by the container to the underlying seq config CLI command. Seq configuration can also be provided through environment variables.
