Securing DevOps's invoicer

A simple REST API that manages invoices.

The master branch is kept at https://securing-devops.com/invoicer but if you are interested in chapter-specific versions of the invoicer, you may want to check out:

To pull the live container of the master branch, use docker pull securingdevops/invoicer.

Get your own copy

To try out the code in this repository, first create a fork in your own github account. Now before you do anything, edit the file in .circleci/config.yml and replace the working_directory parameter with your own namespace.

For example:

    working_directory: /go/src/github.com/Securing-DevOps/invoicer

would become:

    working_directory: /go/src/github.com/jvehent/invoicer

Then, sign up for circleci and build the project. The build will initially fail because it lacks the Docker credentials to push the invoicer's image to dockerhub.

Head over to hub.docker.com, create an account, then create a repository to store the docker containers into, as explained in chapter 2.

Head back to CircleCi and in the "Project Setting", add the following "Environment Variables" with the appropriate values.


These variable will allow CircleCI to upload the docker container of the invoicer into your own account. Once added, trigger a rebuild of the CircleCI job and it should succeed and upload the container without issue.

You can then pull and run the container from your repository as follows:

$ docker run -it <MyGitHubUser>/invoicer

Build the AWS infrastructure

The script create_ebs_env.sh creates a complete AWS infrastructure ready to host the invoicer. The script first creates a database, then an elastic beanstalk environment, and finally deploys the docker container of the invoicer. All you need to get started is creating an AWS account, then create a local profile (see chapter 2 for details) and run the following:

$ export AWS_PROFILE=cloudservices-aws-dev

$ export AWS_REGION=eu-west-1

$ ./create_ebs_env.sh

The script will outputs resources name and credentials for the new environment.

Manual build

Build a statically linked invoicer binary. Requires Go 1.6.

$ mkdir bin
$ go build --ldflags '-extldflags "-static"' -o bin/invoicer .

Then build the container.

$ docker build -t securingdevops/invoicer .

Database Configuration

The invoicer will automatically create a local sqlite database by default, but if you want to run with postgres, follow these instructions.

Create a postgres database named invoicer and grant user invoicer full access to it.

CREATE ROLE invoicer;
ALTER DATABASE invoicer OWNER TO invoicer;

When running PG and Docker on the same box, configure pg_hba to allow the local docker network to connect.

# trust local docker hosts
host    all             all              trust


$ docker run -it \
    -e INVOICER_POSTGRES_USER="invoicer" \
    -e INVOICER_POSTGRES_DB="invoicer" \


Create an invoice

$ curl -X POST \
--data '{"is_paid": false, "amount": 1664, "due_date": "2016-05-07T23:00:00Z", "charges": [ { "type":"blood work", "amount": 1664, "description": "blood work" } ] }' \

Retrieve an invoice

$ curl
