Docker Command for non root files

I just used docker and it is great, only issue with it when filebot moves file, user and group will changed to root; so normal user does not have access to it.

I spend time on google and found solution for this

trick is give read write access to folder mapped using :rw and setting appropriate UID and GID variable
here is sample code

Code: Select all

docker run -it \
-v /path/to/input/folder:/path/to/input/folder:rw \
-v /path/to/output/folder:/path/to/output/folder:rw \
-v /path/to/log/folder:/path/to/log/folder:rw \
-v /path/to/name/formate/folder:/path/to/name/formate/folder:rw \
-v path/to/exclude/list/folder:path/to/exclude/list/folder:rw \
-v /path/to/external/script/folder:/path/to/external/script/folder:rw \
-v $PWD:/volume1 \
-v data:/data \
-e USER_ID=1000 -e GROUP_ID=1000 rednoah/filebot \
-script fn:amc /path/to/input/folder/file  \
--log-file /path/to/log/filebot-$DATE-.log -r \
--output /path/to/output/folder \
--db TheTVDB --action keeplink -non-strict --conflict skip  \
--def @/path/to/name/formate/folder/filebot_tv_formate \
ut_kind="multi" excludeList="path/to/exclude/list/folder/tv_excludes_list" \
plex=""$PlexToken"" \
exec="bash /path/to/external/script/folder/ \"{n}\" \"{s00e00}\" \"{t}\" \"{hd}\" \"{source}\" \"{vc}\" \"{group}\" \"{folder}\""
USER_ID and GROUP_ID can be found using

Code: Select all

id -u 

Code: Select all

id -g
, so replace 1000 with appropriate number.
my log, name formate file, exclude list and script are in folder so instead 4 different folder I mapped only 1 folder.
I do not know signification of -v $PWD:/volume1 -v data:/data so I kept as it is as rednoah suggested on docker hub page.

if that not work (like it did for me) because docker normally runs as root, it's possbile to use

Code: Select all

docker run --user <username>... 
or even

Code: Select all

docker run --user <userID> ....
