TaaS WebSocket in Docker

If you want to host your TaaS endpoint yourself in Docker.

Running TaaS in Docker


  • Docker

  • Tezos Node with enabled RPC endpoint supporting following calls

    • /monitor/heads/main

    • /chains/main/blocks/{hash}

Ready-to-use docker image is available from Docker Hub here: https://hub.docker.com/r/tezoslive/agileventurestezpusherweb.

Example of the docker run command

Do not forget to change the Tezos:NodeUrl based on your configuration!

docker run --rm -it -p 80:80 \
--env Tezos:NodeUrl="" \

If you can't use the semicolon in the ENV variables (for example in the Kubernetes) you can also use double underscore as a deliminator.

docker run --rm -it -p 80:80 \
--env Tezos__NodeUrl="" \

Optional Configuration

By providing ENV variable Logging:LogLevel:Default you can configure logging level.

For client side instructions please see

Configure SSL/TLS for Your TaaS Docker Image

If you are considering opening up your ports to the public, you should configure a certificate and only expose HTTPS endpoint to the outside.

Example of the docker run command for Linux

  • exposing ports 8000 (http) and 8001(https)

  • setting certificate path and password

docker run --rm -it -p 8000:80 -p 8001:443 -e ASPNETCORE_URLS="https://+;http://+" -e ASPNETCORE_HTTPS_PORT=8001 -e ASPNETCORE_Kestrel__Certificates__Default__Password="password" -e ASPNETCORE_Kestrel__Certificates__Default__Path=/https/aspnetapp.pfx -v ${HOME}/.aspnet/https:/https/  tezoslive/agileventurestezpusherweb

For further information about setting up the certificates please refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/security/docker-https?view=aspnetcore-3.0.

For development with Docker over HTTPS please refer to https://github.com/dotnet/dotnet-docker/blob/master/samples/aspnetapp/aspnetcore-docker-https-development.md.
