Modify Portainer Container

  • Does anyone know if there's a way to modify the configuration of the Portainer container that is installed with Docker under OMV-Extras? I've tried Duplicate/Edit from within Portainer, but the container doesn't start back up, and the changes don't stick. I'm trying to add the "--no-auth" command to the configuration to disable authentication because I intend to use http auth instead.


  • That seems to be a side effect of using Portainer to edit itself. I couldn't get it to work.

    Have you tried deploying Portainer with a docker command in the shell instead of using OMV-Extras, adding --no-auth that way?

    Google is your friend and Bob's your uncle!

  • That's a really good suggestion. I don't know why I didn't think of something so obvious. I'll remove the Portainer container via OMV-Extras, and add a new one to my Docker compose file. Trying it out now...

  • I got it to work with the --no-auth command. Here's my Docker compose section:

    This is nice because I can use http auth via my LetsEncrypt container, and I don't get hit with another authentication prompt.
