Deploy Keycloak With Custom Context Path in Kubernetes With Ingress

New to this and spend a day to figured out, perhaps this will help some of you.

1. Prepare your k8s template yaml.

2. Update web-context in <KEYCLOAK_HOME>/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml, standalone-ha.xml, or domain.xml depending on your operating mode.

3. Add proxy-address-forwarding under http-listerner in <KEYCLOAK_HOME>/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml, standalone-ha.xml, or domain.xml depending on your operating mode.

4. Update index.html in <KEYCLOAK_HOME>welcome-content/index.html



Keycloak Invalid parameter: redirect_uri

In case you also facing the same issue, may try 2 approaches as below:

1. If you are using Ingress in Kubernetes, you may need to add proxy-address-forwarding as below in standalone.xml, standalone-ha.xml, or domain.xml depending on your operating mode.

2. Set ‘*” for Valid Redirect URL (this is temporary hack, still figuring out why)

Docker: exec user process caused “no such file or directory”

Have no idea why Docker showing this (un-friendly) error message.
In fact, it caused by the bash script file created in Windows having different line ending and cannot run properly in Linux container.

Here is the fix using Notepad++.
First show the linefeed symbol.

You will see this.

Convert the linefeed from Windows to Unix.

You will get this, and save it 🙂


Weird Spring Boot Behavior

Encountered a weird behavior when running my Spring Boot + JSF (PrimeFaces) application in Docker container (using java -jar xxx.jar as ENTRYPOINT). It keep complaining “xhtml Not Found in ExternalContext as a Resource” when I access the page, in fact that runs well either using java -jar command or mvn spring:run in host machine.

After some hard time,  manage to figure out why…….. phew….
… it was caused by wrong jar packaging structure, and correct structure should look as below:
