  1. Docker Compose to use over the admin panel

    I would like to administrate multiple Docker container via Compose, editable over the Admin panel. Some easy deploying mechanism including the Volumes of the container from my local machine over upload or git would be nice.

  3. Ability to pull Docker container private Docker repository on Docker Hub

    Currently, it is not possible to authenticate on https://hub.docker.com/ to use the container located in private repository.
    The w/a is to make the image public, download it and make it private again.

    While we wish it as much as you do, this is not possible to deliver Docker at customer level at the moment as customers can gain root-level access through the Docker CT and it will be an ultimate security breach.

    The only generic way to deliver such function is wrapping all containers of a customer into a sort of VM similarly to Kubernetes “pods”, but Plesk itself runs in VM commonly and cannot produce extra tier of VMs. So we are very much limited by Docker itself and we are exploring how we can overcome it.

    Thank you

  5. Allow to specify custom port mapping even Docker image does not expose it

    If EXPOSE variable is not specified in Dockerfile, if it not possible to specify it in container settings

  6. WHMCS module / API to provision Docker containers.

    Docker support is already a killer of Plesk (something I had begged for in WHM/cPanel before switching).

    It would be epic if I could allow customers to purchase and provision a Docker container automatically from WHMCS. Obviously, there would have to be some tight control and they would only be pre-defined images. It must be a list of images that I curate since many Docker images do not provide sufficient environmental variables - example: official Redis doesn't let you pass a password, but others like bitnami/redis and
    frodenas/redis allow you to pass REDIS_PASSWORD, which is necessary for a shared environment…

  8. Podman support

    Centos 8 / RHEL 8 drop support for Docker and they will encourage use of Podman. My hint is to support Docker and Podman. Podman could use the same registries of Docker

  10. Programmatically set Forwarding Proxy to Docker container

    If it becomes possible to set those proxies in a bash script the rules can be activated/deactivated when, for instance, we're running an update via any automated CI service.

  11. docker proxy rule respect host/ip

    when mapping a port to the host it is possible to bind it to a host/ip too.

    docker run --name test -p 127.0.1.1:80:80 ...

    docker port test

    80/tcp -> 127.0.1.1:80

    When building a docker rule now in plesk the host/ip is ignored and the proxy_pass goes for the default ip 0.0.0.0:

    proxy_pass http://0.0.0.0:80;

    The rule should respect the host/ip.

    proxy_pass http://127.0.1.1:80;

    Have a nice day
    Felix

  12. Allow multiple Docker hosts (local and remote), ability to specify host per container.

    The Docker extension only allows you to "one service at a time" (ie, localhost, or a remote).

    It would be nice if when I provision a Docker container that I could choose to provision it on localhost (for speed, security) or remotely (for containers that don't need to run on the shared host and/or consume significant resources).

    For example, I almost always want to provision Redis locally for speed, but if someone wanted something like MS SQL Server 2017 (4GB RAM minimum), I'd probably want to put it on a dedicated Docker remote with a high memory configuration (extreme example…

  13. Add portainer

    while somewhat noob friendly the current docker plugin is just missing pretty much every feature to make it useful for anyone else than a hobbyist.

    Portainer is multitudes more powerful and feature rich to serve the power users, for example being able to set up networks and swarms

  15. Extend restart options for docker

    Currently, Docker extension only supports "no" and "unless-stopped" (represented by "Automatic start after system reboot" tickbox).
    It would be nice having the ability to select any of:

    no
    on-failure
    always
    unless-stopped

  17. Allow to setup and customize Nginx directives for Docker globally

    Currently, additional nginx directives can be set per domain however, it would be handy to be able to set additional directives on a global level.
