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:
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.
  • Trace
  • Debug
  • Information
  • Warning
  • Error
  • Critical
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
