identity console - missing text

I have installed identity console 1.3 as a docker image.

It sort of almost works, unfortunately text are missing from icons and whatnot. What can be the issue here? (see pictures below)

The user logged in here is supervisor on [root], so I guess eDir rights is not an issue.

  • I have installed identity console 1.3 as a docker image.

    And is it worth bothering?

    Last tried a while ago to get it running in Docker Desktop for Mac, but it failed miserably and I gave up after a while.

    I know, macOS is not supported but that would be at least one real advantage over iManager - if ID Console would work at all and had all features needed to replace iManager in offline IDM development.

    But why bother with docker on Linux when iManager is so much easier to install and update in a VM? I'm already pushed off by reading all the manual prep steps and tinker-here-and-fiddle-there details the install instructions - can it really be so hard to provide something that it simple to set up and actually works in the end? Isn't that what that Docker hype is all about?

  • If you want to use Docker on MacOS then install it via brew - and use the cli only as it's easier.

    I'd say iManager in a container makes more sense than for example eDir/IDM for one simple reason; it's less work to upgrade it. I have to admit it took me some hours to get it working (more than one attempt) - and there is still and issue with configiman which I can't get to update from iManager if I make persistent ... will be next attempt.

    Docker is for the right applications a good idea, but if you look at eDir/IDM then it's a horrible idea, partly due to the way they made the images  (broken images that is) and how eDir/IDM is copied to the filesystem in the first place. I spend a few days getting eDir to work, and after that I decided that I had better things to do with my life. And if you want to use Docker the right way with persistent data then eDir suddenly becomes a real nightmare in a container ... So I'm 100% with you, eDir/IDM belong in a VM.

  • I think you need to setup a new container for each tree if you want to use IC as iManager Workstation.

    Because it looks to be using the eDir REST API you need to present the correct certificates and a admin user for each tree.

    Also if you look at the docs, when upgrading you need to copy stuff into the container even though there is a docker volume.

    IC feels much more responsive than iManager in my environment.

  • I was told that the next iteration of IC should give multi tree support, but I'm not holding my breath.

  • That's right. The upcoming version adds support for multiple trees.
