RUN mkdir - create folder with Container ID as its name

Can I issue a RUN mkdir command in the Dockerfile to create a folder with the container ID as its name?

Looking for something like: /prod/logs/CONTAINERID/app.log

basically IMAGES can not rely on CONTAINERS. egg/chicken problem. :slight_smile:

but for logging, please have a look at

try to use syslog or something else established. It fits the needs of many people out there. If it also could fit your needs, you could reuse a whole bunch of software stack based on these abstractions. Like ELK or something similar.
