Hi,

Not sure that this helps, but below is how I solved similar issue by
generating include file inside Docker file using env variables, but this is
not a good approach for sensitive data.

echo "\modparam(\"http_client\", \"httpcon\",
\"apiserver=>https://$apiurl\";); \" >> /kamailio.apiurl

I believe you can use docker secrets, as described below, but I never used
them so I can't help much:

With kind regards,

Jurijs
