In airbyte you can export or import configurations in settings/configuration. How you can start a airbyte docker container with these configurations with shell script? How can I implement this?

Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi Christopher! I need some more time to look into this, but most changes to the configuration/env variables/etc would be applied by spinning down the container with docker compose down and then restarting it with docker compose up. Could you try that?

I want to start a airbyte container with the configuration I made on my computer on a different machine from command line.

Thanks for your patience - our small team has been receiving a large amount of community messages! Here’s my suggestion, you can use docker save for an image or docker export for a container. This will output a tar file to standard output. Then you can use docker load or docker import in a different host.

Let me know if this helps!
