KeychainStore not found

I am running a docker build in GitLab CI and getting following error during build:

Content of GitLab .gitlab-ci.yml:

image: gradle-base:1.0

 GRADLE_OPTS: "-Dorg.gradle.daemon=false"

  - build
  - package
  - deploy

  stage: build
   - gradle --debug wrapper
   - "./gradlew clean build"
      - target/*.jar

  stage: package

  stage: deploy

Image gradle-base:1.0 shown above was built using the following Dockerfile:


COPY abc-root-ca.pem /tmp/

RUN set -x; \
        keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts \
                -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias abcrootca -file /tmp/abc-root-ca.pem \
        ; \
        keytool -list -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts | grep -A1 abc \
        ; \

When i built the Dockerfile, i could see that the cert i was trying to import was successfully imported.

Hello. I hope this question was posted on a relevant forum. Please comment if i’m wrong in my assumption. If that’s the case, please let me know where should this be posted.


I had a similar problem and took me couple of hours to figure it out.
The general problem is that you are probably running the build via gradle wrapper. Now for this there is a hardcoded jvmargs located in the that does not exists. This gradle docker base is built on some kind of a ubuntu like scheme, so there is this package facility called: ca-certificates that handles all the trust cert related goodies.

build a custom docker image like this
Now try the following in the Dockerfile:

FROM gradle
COPY your-root_ca.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/
RUN update-ca-certificates
CMD [“gradle”]

use this new docker image in your gitlab ci yaml

Remove this part of the the jvmargs in the"$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts"

After this the build ran fine for me.

Thanks Mate for the reply. Unfortunately, i am no longer part of that project so i cannot verify it now as i don’t have the code base with me. :disappointed:
