Hi all,
As per your instruction I have followed the url you mentioned for connecting database to the container, but still my logs shows the following error. kindly request you to see my log file.
What I have done is attached as file.
But still I am not able to understand which ip I should use in connection url and which ip I should use to create the user.
Where I will get proper documentation for setting up grouper 2.5.
As I am newbie and started learning grouper from scratch .
Please can you help me to solve the problem.

The first error ( in the screenshots that you sent )is this one:

                2021-03-03. 08:35:58,987 …..      “host ‘’ is not allowed to connect to this MariaDB server”.


Your MariaDB is refusing to talk to your Grouper install.


Generally: You need to adjust the access controls on the database and/or network to allow that connection to work.


You have not completed the “Get a server and database” step.

  Please see to the general content here:

    NOTE: You do not need to have your database in a docker container. That is more for “local installs for single user testing”.

                However, all of the SQL operations to create a database user and database needs to be done BEFORE the container will be able to connect.



create database grouper_v2_5 character set UTF8 collate utf8_bin;

create user 'grouper_v2_5'@'' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password by 'pass';

grant all on grouper_v2_5.* to 'grouper_v2_5'@'';

flush privileges;



The name of the database (“grouper_v2_5” in the example above) can be any name you want to use. ( In prod I suggest not using a version number in the name. )

The ‘userName@hostIP’  ('grouper_v2_5'@'' in the example) can be any username and you can set a specific IP address or use “*”. ( MariaDB specific details. )

Hi Malathi,


That Unicon document is for an older approach using a different Grouper docker image (tier/grouper). The latest versions of Grouper are supplied as a different image (i2incommon/grouper), with many improvements to make it more versatile. For an introduction, (Grouper Packaging and Versioning for v2.5+) is a good starting point.
