Can I specify a file instead of a directory to send to the container in the file?

I cannot find the reference documentation to the available fields in I’m trying to import /dev/log from the host into the container so that I can centralize logs to logstash.

From the example, we can see that there is “HostDirectory” and “ContainerDirectory” however I can’t find any analogue for “HostFile”/”ContainerFile”.

    You can mount a host file as a data volume:

    So you should be able to use the "Volumes" section to mount your file to your container.

      "Volumes": [
          "HostDirectory": "/dev/log",
          "ContainerDirectory": "/dev/log"
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
