Is it legal to use sidekicks with links?

I have a an existing docker-compose.yml that uses link. I want to run this stack in Rancher, but I want all of the containers to be on the same host.

I set up all of the containers as sidekicks of the first container, which also happens to be sort of the “primary” container for the stack.

rancher-compose gets to “Creating projects” and just hangs. I"m assuming that it’s having problems trying to sort our the links and sidekick dependencies.

Any advice?

It should be supported but I believe there is known bug here.

@alena is this something you are aware of?
