service add

To add a service to an enclave, run:


where $THE_ENCLAVE_IDENTIFIER and the $THE_SERVICE_IDENTIFIER are resource identifiers for the enclave and service, respectively. Note, the service identifier needs to be formatted according to RFC 1035. Specifically, 1-63 lowercase alphanumeric characters with dashes and cannot start or end with dashes. Also service names have to start with a lowercase alphabet.

Much like docker run, this command has multiple options available to customize the service that's started:

  1. The --entrypoint flag can be passed in to override the binary the service runs
  2. The --env flag can be used to specify a set of environment variables that should be set when running the service
  3. The --ports flag can be used to set the ports that the service will listen on

To override the service's CMD, add a -- after the image name and then pass in your CMD args like so:

kurtosis service add --entrypoint sh my-enclave test-service alpine -- -c "echo 'Hello world'"
