IBM Application Gateway Docker Example

The IBM Application Gateway can be deployed as a standalone Docker container.

Docker Deployment Model

Example

The following steps will:

  • Create the IBM Application Gateway Docker container
  • Create an application that will be fronted by IBM Application Gateway
  • Access the application via the IBM Application Gateway
  • The page will show the identity and other headers that have been added to the request by the IBM Application Gateway

Note: This example does not include authentication. This example illustrates the deployment process for using IBM Application Gateway as a proxy to a protected application. For details on adding authentication, refer to Configuring as an OIDC Relying Party for IBM Security Verify or Configuring as an OIDC Relying Party for IBM Security Verify Access.
