I’m bringing this conversation over from Slack, since we have a 10K message limit.
In which I learned “How to bind services defined in a composite to service groups that are not in the composite.”
I’m working in a studio with a Rails application (supermarket) and a background worker (sidekiq, as the supermarket-worker package). The code is in the supermarket repository on a branch0.
First, start up postgresql and redis:
hab svc load core/postgresql hab svc load core/redis
Then, start supermarket and supermarket-worker:
hab svc load chefops/supermarket --bind redis:redis.default --bind database:postgresql.default hab svc load chefops/supermarket-worker --bind redis:redis.default
I thought this would work the same way with the composite, but it didn’t. That is, I tried this:
hab svc load chefops/supermarket-composite \ --bind redis:redis.default \ --bind database:postgresql.default
However, this wasn’t passing the binds into the services in the composite. I had to additionally specify the name of the service that I wanted to use with each binding.
hab svc load chefops/supermarket-composite \ --bind supermarket-worker:redis:redis.default \ --bind supermarket:redis.default \ --bind supermarket:database:postgresql.default
Note that supermarket itself needs to bind to redis, as well as the sidekiq worker.
