Environment VariablesΒΆ

The common set of settings can also be modified via environment variables when using the Docker image. In addition to the common set of settings, some Docker image specific environment variables are available.

  • MAYAN_APT_INSTALLS

    Specifies a list of Ubuntu .deb packages to be installed via APT when the container is first created. The installed packages are not lost when the image is stopped. Example: To install the Tesseract OCR language packs for German and Spanish add the following in your docker start command line:

    -e MAYAN_APT_INSTALLS="tesseract-ocr-deu tesseract-ocr-spa"
    
  • MAYAN_DOCKER_WAIT

    Optional. Make the Docker container wait for a host and port to become available. Multiple hosts and port combinations are supported.

    Example:

    -e MAYAN_DOCKER_WAIT="db:5432 redis:6379"
    
  • MAYAN_SETTINGS_MODULE

    Optional. Allows loading an alternate settings file.

  • MAYAN_GUNICORN_TIMEOUT

    Optional. Changes the amount of time the frontend worker will wait for a request to finish before raising a timeout error. The default is 120 seconds.

  • MAYAN_GUNICORN_WORKERS

    Optional. This environment variable controls the number of frontend workers that will be executed. If not specified the default is 2. For heavier loads, user a higher number. A formula recommended for this setting is the number of CPU cores + 1.

  • MAYAN_PIP_INSTALLS

    Specifies a list of Python packages to be installed via pip. Packages will be downloaded from the Python Package Index (https://pypi.python.org) by default.

  • MAYAN_SKIP_CHOWN_ON_STARTUP

    Optional. Setting this environment variable to true, will make the entrypoint script, skip the initial chwon command on the media folder at /var/lib/mayan.

  • MAYAN_WORKER_FAST_CONCURRENCY

    Optional. Changes the concurrency (number of child processes) of the Celery worker consuming the queues in the fast (low latency, short tasks) category. Default is 1. Use 0 to disable hardcoded concurrency and allow the Celery worker to launch its default number of child processes (equal to the number of CPUs detected).

  • MAYAN_WORKER_MEDIUM_CONCURRENCY

    Optional. Changes the concurrency (number of child processes) of the Celery worker consuming the queues in the medium (medium latency, long running tasks) category. Default is 1. Use 0 to disable hardcoded concurrency and allow the Celery worker to launch its default number of child processes (equal to the number of CPUs detected).

  • MAYAN_WORKER_SLOW_CONCURRENCY

    Optional. Changes the concurrency (number of child processes) of the Celery worker consuming the queues in the slow (high latency, very long running tasks) category. Default is 1. Use 0 to disable hardcoded concurrency and allow the Celery worker to launch its default number of child processes (equal to the number of CPUs detected).

  • MAYAN_USER_UID

    Optional. Changes the UID of the mayan user internal to the Docker container. Defaults to 1000.

  • MAYAN_USER_GID

    Optional. Changes the GID of the mayan user internal to the Docker container. Defaults to 1000.
