Use Docker layering.
Use the image as a Source-To-Image builder
Now i found docker layering to be ideal in my case since I have created a new project and made many configurations to make it work.
I ran the below command for getting the new image
# docker commit -m "my message" <containerid> <new image name:tag>
I pushed it to my local registry and used it to create a new application in openshift.
It did get deployed, but the jenkins image doesn't contain any of my changes...
comparing the history of both the original image and the modified image, it looks like it did add a new layer:
IMAGE CREATED CREATED BY SIZE COMMENT
e99517b97a3e 21 hours ago /usr/libexec/s2i/run 1.886 MB jenkins 3rd attempt
c014669e27a0 11 days ago /bin/sh -c #(nop) LABEL io.openshift.builder- 0 B
So finally coming to my question, am I missing something while creating a new docker layer for my jenkins image?
Or should i just use Source to image builder for my changes?
Thanks & Regards,
