Parameters passed into docker via build do not influence centos env vars

I am passing a few environment variables into a container at build using "… --env xxx=123 --env )))…

When I run the following after a “start”:

docker exec -i -u user containerName /bin/bash -c “env”

I see these values.


But they’re not reflected in the centos environment (using “env” on a commandline).

How could I make have these values appear?
