Start IAM

Starting the containers#

There are several methods to start the containers. If you have Docker support within your IDE, consult their documentation on run configurations.

If you are using the command line, use the following global command:

docker compose -f /path/to/your/docker-compose.yml up -d

If you are using Docker Compose V1, you can use the command docker-compose.

This command starts the iam and database services. The health of the services can be checked with the following command:

docker ps

Your output should look similar to the following:

CONTAINER ID   IMAGE                COMMAND                  CREATED          STATUS                    PORTS                     NAMES9c46cfecca05   camunda/iam:latest   "java -jar iam.jar"      38 seconds ago   Up 35 seconds   >8080/tcp    iam_application_1a2174c3fe0e9   postgres:13.3-alpine "docker-entrypoint.s…"   42 seconds ago   Up 38 seconds (healthy)>5432/tcp   iam_database_1

If the container for the IAM application does not remain healthy, you can use the CONTAINER ID to check the logs by running docker logs <COMTAINER_ID>.


Congratulations! You've now started the IAM application. Let's move on to logging in.
