This document provides instructions to enable Docker on a Metworx Workflow, since by default, it is disabled.

Disclaimer: Relevant Metworx Version(s)

Enabling Docker

To enable Docker on your Metworx Workflow, follow these steps:

  1. Open a Terminal window. This can be done in any of the entry points of a workflow, whether it is via the Remote Desktop or any of the IDE options provided by RStudio Workbench (RStudio, JupyterLab, VSCode).
  2. In your Terminal, execute the following: sudo systemctl enable docker

Executing the command above will enable Docker on your Metworx Workflow, allowing you to use the tool as desired.
