I'm trying to run the Azure CosmosDB Emulator in a Docker container as according to these instructions:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/local-emulator#running-on-docker

The main commands described are:

md %LOCALAPPDATA%\CosmosDBEmulatorCert 2>null docker run -v %LOCALAPPDATA%\CosmosDBEmulatorCert:C:\CosmosDB.Emulator\CosmosDBEmulatorCert -P -t -i -m 2GB microsoft/azure-cosmosdb-emulator

The next instruction is to import the SSL certificate on the host: cd /d %LOCALAPPDATA%\CosmosDBEmulatorCert powershell .\importcert.ps1

But the folder is empty - there's no certificate and no powershell script.

Similarly, the C:\CosmosDB.Emulator\CosmosDBEmulatorCert folder on the container is empty as well.

When everything was initializing, there's a line saying:

-a---- 10/18/2018 4:50 PM 513 CosmosDbEmulatorCert.cer

But I can't see a certificate anywhere

Use these instructions instead: https://hub.docker.com/r/microsoft/azure-cosmosdb-emulator/

The run command showed there is slighted different. It uses --mount instead of -v option to handle volumes and binds:

(Replace %hostDirectory% for your path where you want to store the certificates like C:\Users\<youruser>\AppData\Local\azure-cosmosdb-emulator-hostd or declare it in the script)

 docker run --name azure-cosmosdb-emulator --memory 2GB --mount "type=bind,source=%hostDirectory%,destination=C:\CosmosDB.Emulator\bind-mount" -P --interactive --tty microsoft/azure-cosmosdb-emulator

You can then close the interactive shell. It will remain running.

microsoft/azure-cosmosdb-emulator, The Azure Cosmos Emulator can be run on Docker Windows containers. The Emulator does not work on Linux containers. Once you have Docker for Windows installed, you can pull the Emulator image from Docker Hub by running the following command from your favorite shell (cmd.exe, PowerShell, etc.). CosmosDB emulator on host. The CosmosDB emulator is locked down to localhost by default. To allow calls from within the docker cluster you need to open up for network access. This is done by adding the AllowNetworkAccess parameter at startup. You also need to specify a new access key. The key needs to be a Base64 encoded 64 character long string, like this one. A custom startup script for the CosmosDB emulator could look like this:

I found the certificate in the container in C:\CosmosDB.Emulator\bind-mount

Azure/azure-cosmos-db-emulator-docker: Contains , Contains Dockerfiles for the Azure Cosmos DB Emulator: can fetch the image from Docker Hub by running docker pull Microsoft/azure-cosmosdb-emulator . You can migrate data between the Azure Cosmos Emulator and the Azure Cosmos DB service by using the Azure Cosmos DB Data Migration Tool. You can run Azure Cosmos Emulator on the Windows Docker container, see the Docker Hub for the docker pull command and GitHub for the Dockerfile and more information.

Linux Image · Issue #17 · Azure/azure-cosmos-db-emulator-docker , Seems like the current plan is "go pound sand or use a live azure account". CosmosDB does have a free tier available now, which helps, but it doesn't help for  azure-cosmos-db-emulator-docker unable to connect Robo 3t or mongo api.

Develop with CosmosDB in Docker, CosmosDB emulator on host. The CosmosDB emulator is locked down to localhost by default. To allow calls from within the docker cluster you  I can't seem to connect to an Emulator running in a Docker container (rather than localHost). Using 'connect to Emulator' fails (since the emulator is not running on localhost). Connecting via a connection string fails since the emulator connection string includes the key which contains '/' characters, causing the connection string parsing to fail.

Azure CosmosDB Emulator on Docker doesn't generate certificate , Use these instructions instead: https://hub.docker.com/r/microsoft/azure-​cosmosdb-emulator/. The run command showed there is slighted  No, we do not use Azure DevOps. We use Docker (Linux) inside of Azure Container Instances. The reason we want to use the emulator is that we probably want to support thousands of requests per second but not have the overhead (network cost & monetary costs) and possible production interference by going directly against Cosmos.

Use the Azure Cosmos DB Emulator for local development and , The Azure Cosmos DB Emulator provides a local environment that emulates development and testing #Azure #CosmosDB #DevOps #Docker Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. More than one group at Microsoft (inside and outside Cosmos DB) are going to be using it in their CI systems. Hence, the pull process must be air tight; not dodgy. If you see this issue again, please send e-mail to Ask Azure Cosmos DB and I will pick it up. Thanks for using the Emulator on docker.
