Docker-compose real_ip_header

Create a project in docker-compose where I have Kong, Konga (Web Admin), an API with your DB and Splunk to collect the logs.

The problem I have is that I cannot acquire the TCP IP addresses of those who consume the API through Kong.

From what I read you should configure these lines, on etc/kong/kong.conf.default. Is that so?

trusted_ips
real_ip_header = X-Real-IP

Here its my proyect

Logically I obtain, as a client, the IP address of my Kong container.

How could I modify the docker-compose so that this configuration is by default in the docker-compose up.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Add the environment variable to Kong in Docker compose

- KONG_TRUSTED_IPS=0.0.0.0/0,::/0
- KONG_REAL_IP_RECURSIVE=on

Hi narate, thanks for your help.

I add the fields:

  # Kong: The API Gateway
  #######################################
  kong:

    restart: on-failure
    networks:

      - KONG_PG_HOST: kong-database

    healthcheck:

      interval: 10s
      timeout: 10s
      retries: 10
    ports:
      - "8000:8000"
      - "8001:8001"
      - "8443:8443"
      - "8444:8444"

I keep getting the address of the Docker Gateway. :hot_face:

I’ll try changing docker’s network mode, but it shouldn’t be that. If something happens, don’t stop telling me. Thanks a lot.

I tested on Linux with the docker-compose working fine, but Docker on macOS still get docker ip
