When we attempt to make Grist scalable, we hit some issue where the web client attempts to join the wrong domain for the doc workers.
As long as the subdomain is simple (
doc-worker-1.domain.org), it works fine.
However, when we attempt to make some boring subdomains like
grist.subdomain.domain.org for the home server and
doc-worker-1.grist.subdomain.domain.org for the worker, the client attempts to join
doc-worker-1.domain.org), truncating parts of the hostname. Though I am not sure, but I suspect this is related to the extraction of the organization in the subdomains despite the
GRIST_ORG_IN_PATH variable being set to some trutry value.
You can try it by tweaking a little bit the environment variables (especially I think the variable related to S3 storage) and then run
docker-compose up -d.
NB: I had to patch a little bit
getHostType so when the function would return
native when the server is contacted with the internal doc URL (I would be happy to clean that and propose the fix in a PR):
