I’m running into an issue with docker (full disclosure, I might be missing something pretty fundamental here). When I build the docker container I would like to include
meltano install
in the build so I don’t have to rebuild it every time I run a
meltano
command (we don’t have ephemeral storage on production). This doesn’t work though because the
Dockerfile
doesn’t have access to the
MELTANO_DATABASE_URI
(and can’t because of the way we handle secrets) and the env variable is required to run
meltano install
. I guess my main question is: why does meltano need access to the Metadata Database to run
meltano install
? I don’t see anything in the db that relates to installing the plugins.
