REQ-362 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Exception required for third party containers AWX and Netbox.

Milestones affected


Projects affected


Background description

CDS uses third party provided docker containers for AWX and Netbox, which currently run as root.

In the case of AWX, this appears to be a known limitation - there are open issues against AWX due to the fact that it must run as root.

In the case of Netbox, we might be able to run as a non-root user via security context settings in the corresponding helm charts, but we did not have time in Guilin to test this methodology

Schedule impact


Recovery plan

For AWX, we need to track progress in the AWX community to resolve their permission issues.

For Netbox, we will pursue using security contexts to close this issue.

Milestone schedule change



There does not appear to be a viable path to running AWX as non-root without changes from the AWX community.
