What is Parse Dashboard?

Parse Dashboard is a standalone dashboard for managing your Parse apps. You can use it to manage your Parse Server apps and your apps that are running on Parse.com.

TL;DR;

Docker Compose

$ curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bitnami/bitnami-docker-parse-dashboard/master/docker-compose.yml > docker-compose.yml
$ docker-compose up -d

Why use Bitnami Images?

  • Bitnami closely tracks upstream source changes and promptly publishes new versions of this image using our automated systems.
  • With Bitnami images the latest bug fixes and features are available as soon as possible.
  • Bitnami containers, virtual machines and cloud images use the same components and configuration approach - making it easy to switch between formats based on your project needs.
  • All our images are based on minideb a minimalist Debian based container image which gives you a small base container image and the familiarity of a leading linux distribution.
  • All Bitnami images available in Docker Hub are signed with Docker Content Trust (DTC). You can use DOCKER_CONTENT_TRUST=1 to verify the integrity of the images.
  • Bitnami container images are released daily with the latest distribution packages available.

This CVE scan report contains a security report with all open CVEs. To get the list of actionable security issues, find the "latest" tag, click the vulnerability report link under the corresponding "Security scan" field and then select the "Only show fixable" filter on the next page.

Why use a non-root container?

Non-root container images add an extra layer of security and are generally recommended for production environments. However, because they run as a non-root user, privileged tasks are typically off-limits. Learn more about non-root containers in our docs.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

NOTE: Debian 8 images have been deprecated in favor of Debian 9 images. Bitnami will not longer publish new Docker images based on Debian 8.

Learn more about the Bitnami tagging policy and the difference between rolling tags and immutable tags in our documentation page.

Prerequisites

To run this application you need Docker Engine 1.10.0. Docker Compose is recomended with a version 1.6.0 or later.

How to use this image

Run the application using Docker Compose

This is the recommended way to run Parse Dashboard. You can use the following docker compose template:

version: '2'
services:
  mongodb:
    image: 'bitnami/mongodb:latest'
    volumes:
      - 'mongodb_data:/bitnami'
  parse:
    image: 'bitnami/parse:latest'
    volumes:
      - 'parse_data:/bitnami'
    ports:
      - '1337:1337'
    depends_on:
      - mongodb
  parse-dashboard:
    image: 'bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest'
    ports:
      - '80:4040'
    volumes:
      - 'parse_dashboard_data:/bitnami'
    depends_on:
      - mongodb
volumes:
  mongodb_data:
    driver: local
  parse_data:
    driver: local
  parse_dashboard_data:
    driver: local

Run the application manually

If you want to run the application manually instead of using docker-compose, these are the basic steps you need to run:

  1. Create a network for the application, Parse Server and the database:
$ docker network create parse_dashboard-tier
  1. Start a MongoDB database in the network generated:
$ docker run -d --name mongodb --net=parse_dashboard-tier bitnami/mongodb

Note: You need to give the container a name in order to Parse to resolve the host.

  1. Start a Parse Server container:
$ docker run -d -p 1337:1337 --name parse --net=parse_dashboard-tier bitnami/parse
  1. Run the Parse Dashboard container:
$ docker run -d -p 80:4040 --name parse-dashboard --net=parse_dashboard-tier bitnami/parse-dashboard

Then you can access your application at http://your-ip/

Persisting your application

If you remove the container all your data and configurations will be lost, and the next time you run the image the database will be reinitialized. To avoid this loss of data, you should mount a volume that will persist even after the container is removed.

For persistence you should mount a volume at the /bitnami path. Additionally you should mount a volume for the persistence of MongoDB and Parse data.

The above examples define docker volumes namely mongodb_data, parse_data and parse_dashboard_data. The application state will persist as long as these volumes are not removed.

To avoid inadvertent removal of these volumes you can mount host directories as data volumes. Alternatively you can make use of volume plugins to host the volume data.

Mount host directories as data volumes with Docker Compose

This requires a minor change to the docker-compose.yml template previously shown:

version: '2'

services:
  mongodb:
    image: 'bitnami/mongodb:latest'
    volumes:
      - '/path/to/mongodb-persistence:/bitnami'
  parse:
    image: 'bitnami/parse:latest'
    ports:
      - '1337:1337'
    depends_on:
        - mongodb
    volumes:
      - '/path/to/parse-persistence:/bitnami'
  parse-dashboard:
    image: 'bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest'
    ports:
      - '80:4040'
    depends_on:
      - mongodb
    volumes:
      - '/path/to/parse_dashboard-persistence:/bitnami'

Mount host directories as data volumes using the Docker command line

In this case you need to specify the directories to mount on the run command. The process is the same than the one previously shown:

  1. Create a network (if it does not exist):
$ docker network create parse_dashboard-tier
  1. Create a MongoDB container with host volume:
$ docker run -d --name mongodb \
  --net parse-dashboard-tier \
  --volume /path/to/mongodb-persistence:/bitnami \
  bitnami/mongodb:latest

Note: You need to give the container a name in order to Parse to resolve the host.

  1. Start a Parse Server container:
$ docker run -d -name parse -p 1337:1337 \
  --net parse-dashboard-tier
  --volume /path/to/parse-persistence:/bitnami \
  bitnami/parse:latest
  1. Run the Parse Dashboard container:
$ docker run -d --name parse-dashboard -p 80:4040 \
--volume /path/to/parse_dashboard-persistence:/bitnami \
bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest

Upgrade this application

Bitnami provides up-to-date versions of Parse Dashboard, including security patches, soon after they are made upstream. We recommend that you follow these steps to upgrade your container. We will cover here the upgrade of the Parse Dashboard container.

  1. Get the updated images:
$ docker pull bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest
  1. Stop your container
  • For docker-compose: $ docker-compose stop parse-dashboard
  • For manual execution: $ docker stop parse-dashboard
  1. Take a snapshot of the application state
$ rsync -a /path/to/parse-persistence /path/to/parse-persistence.bkp.$(date +%Y%m%d-%H.%M.%S)

Additionally, snapshot the MongoDB and Parse server data.

You can use these snapshots to restore the application state should the upgrade fail.

  1. Remove the currently running container
  • For docker-compose: $ docker-compose rm parse-dashboard
  • For manual execution: $ docker rm parse-dashboard
  1. Run the new image
  • For docker-compose: $ docker-compose up parse-dashboard
  • For manual execution (mount the directories if needed): docker run --name parse-dashboard bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest

Configuration

Environment variables

When you start the parse-dashboard image, you can adjust the configuration of the instance by passing one or more environment variables either on the docker-compose file or on the docker run command line. If you want to add a new environment variable:

  • For docker-compose add the variable name and value under the application section:
parse-dashboard:
  image: bitnami/parse-dashboard:latest
  ports:
    - 80:4040
  environment:
    - PARSE_DASHBOARD_PASSWORD=my_password
  volumes:
    - 'parse_dashboard_data:/bitnami'
  depends_on:
    - parse
  • For manual execution add a -e option with each variable and value:
 $ docker run -d -e PARSE_DASHBOARD_PASSWORD=my_password -p 80:4040 --name parse-dashboard -v /your/local/path/bitnami/parse_dashboard:/bitnami --network=parse_dashboard-tier bitnami/parse-dashboard

Available variables:

  • PARSE_DASHBOARD_USER: Parse Dashboard application username. Default: user
  • PARSE_DASHBOARD_PASSWORD: Parse Dashboard application password. Default: bitnami
  • PARSE_HOST: This host is for Parse Dashboard knows how to form the urls to Parse Server.
  • PARSE_PORT_NUMBER: Parse Server Port. Default: 1337
  • PARSE_APP_ID: Parse Server App Id. Default: myappID
  • PARSE_MASTER_KEY: Parse Server Master Key. Default: mymasterKey
  • PARSE_DASHBOARD_APP_NAME: Parse Dashboard application name. Default: MyDashboard

Notable Changes

1.2.0-r69

  • The Parse Dashboard container has been migrated to a non-root user approach. Previously the container ran as the root user and the Parse Dashboard daemon was started as the parsedashboard user. From now on, both the container and the Parse Dashboard daemon run as user 1001. As a consequence, the data directory must be writable by that user. You can revert this behavior by changing USER 1001 to USER root in the Dockerfile.
