InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Add the License Key to the External Storage Location
Like any InterSystems IRIS instance, an instance running in a container requires a license key (typically called iris.key).
The InterSystems IRIS Community Edition image available from the Docker Store (described in the previous section) comes with a free built-in temporary license. Generally, however, license keys are not and cannot be included in an InterSystems IRIS container image, but instead must be copied into a container after it is started to be activated for the InterSystems IRIS instance running there. The iris-main program provides an option for this, but it requires you to place the license key in a storage location to be mounted as an external volume; instructions for using it are provided in the next section. To learn more about license keys for InterSystems IRIS containers, see License Keys for InterSystems IRIS Containers in Running InterSystems Products in Containers.
Copy your InterSystems IRIS license key file, iris.key, to the external storage location.
