NAME

       docker-container-exec - Run a command in a running container

SYNOPSIS

       docker container exec [OPTIONS] CONTAINER COMMAND [ARG...]

DESCRIPTION

       Run a process in a running container.

       The command started using docker exec will only run while the container's primary process
       (PID 1) is running, and will not be restarted if the container is restarted.

       If the container is paused, then the docker exec command will wait until the container is
       unpaused, and then run

CAPABILITIES

       privileged gives the process extended Linux capabilities ⟨http://man7.org/linux/man-
       pages/man7/capabilities.7.html⟩ when running in a container.

       Without this flag, the process run by docker exec in a running container has the same
       capabilities as the container, which may be limited. Set --privileged to give all
       capabilities to the process.

USER

       user sets the username or UID used and optionally the groupname or GID for the specified
       command.

       The followings examples are all valid:
          --user [user | user:group | uid | uid:gid | user:gid | uid:group ]

       Without this argument the command will be run as root in the container.
