Pass parameters to docker container in Murano

I'm moving from Rancher to Murano. The problem I face is that I can't link(e.g. --link "my-db:db") containers nor attach volumes(e.g. -v /src/webapp:/opt/webapp) to Docker container from openstack's web console. Rancher is more flexible when it comes to container management but my company abandoned it in favor of openstack Murano.

I'm wondering how can I manage my container infrastructure in Murano without logging in every instance and setting it up manually? For example I want to deploy (sentry) which is super easy to set up in Rancher.

To link containers, you can check Influx and InfluxDB applications from Murano apps repository ( They implement a linked architecture between two containers and fetch information from each other.

Regarding other parameters, I've implemented a new version of the docker-container, docker-interface and standalone-host packages to support volume mapping in the format [HostDirectory]:[ContainerDirectory]. Ex. /srv/etc:/etc,/srv/log:/var/log.

I'm already implementing a way to pass additional parameters like "--restart always" and etc... It works but I've been trying to send the application's IP address to the container (to use on --hostname [IP]) for example but this is still unsuccessful.

If you are interested testing the Murano packages, let me know.
