The Host Setup section is only available to Docker Standalone environments.
Under Setup, you can make changes to your environment, enabling and disabling features and security settings.
For environments running the Portainer Agent, this section is where you configure how Portainer interacts with elements of the host.
For security, these features are disabled by default. Be sure that you understand their impact before enabling them.
Enabling host management features allows you to see the available devices and storage on the physical node as well as browse the node's filesystem. The environment must be running the Portainer Agent to use this functionality, and for filesystem browsing, the root of the host must be bind-mounted to
/hostin the agent deployment:
For example, starting the Portainer Agent on Linux with the host filesystem mounted at
docker run -d -p 9001:9001 --name portainer_agent --restart=always -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /var/lib/docker/volumes:/var/lib/docker/volumes -v /:/host portainer/agent:latest
Enabling this feature allows non-administrator users to manage volumes on an environment. If this is disabled, users below administrator level have read-only access to volumes.
If this setting is enabled and an update is made to an application outside of this window, it will not be applied.
This section allows you to toggle assorted Docker-related security settings for the environment.
This section contains other assorted environment-specific settings.
