Your first scan (dockerized client)

How to use the dockerized client to execute your first scan

The Dockerized Client requires your environment to have docker support: everything else is provided in the docker image, as it contains the Java runtime plus all the required tools for the full range of platforms supported by the Meterian platform.

This guide assumes you are working on a *nix environment: if you are using windows, docker may work slightly differently. Please refer to the page "Use the thin client on Windows".

1. pull the docker scanner official image

$ docker pull meterian/cli:latest

2. download the simplified script to run the docker image and make it executable

$ curl > ~/meterian; chmod +x ~/meterian

3. set up the METERIAN_API_TOKEN environment variable with one of tokens available in the account, or create a new one. We also suggest you add this to your .bashrc

export METERIAN_API_TOKEN=your-token-uuid-here

4. launch the client once to validate everything is working properly (note: the first time the thin client may also be downloaded)

$ ~/meterian --version 

Meterian Client v1.2.24.5, build 51bcad7-764
© 2017-2022 Meterian Ltd - dockerized version

5. move into the folder you have your codebase and execute the client

$ ~/meterian

© 2017-2022 Meterian Ltd - dockerized version
Meterian Client v1.2.24.5, build 51bcad7-764
