DockerCloud Friendly Naming Nodes on Remote Server

dockercloud

(Jesse Boyer) #1

In DockerCloud I would like to generate more friendly names for the servers. My flow is:

Git -> CircleCI -> DockerHub -> DockerCloud -> DigitalOcean 

This creates a server with a name such as:

1deb76ac-3e2e-bcdf-ce23-8dce49cdcf13.node.dockerapp.io

This is hard to read on DigitalOcean, is there a way to give it a friendlier name? Something like:

<short-hash>-any-name
1deb76ac-any-name

I realize this has to be a unique name from dockerapp.io with all their customers, however it seems they would possibly allow a friendly name which would appear to the service provider.

I have been thinking and looking around and I’m not sure how to accomplish this, docker has so many sources.
