How can I put the network alias of a docker container as the same name as the container itself?

I have a Edge Device (Linux containers on Windows) with several containers of custom modules.

I need to configure this containers to get the network alias from it's the name or a way to set it on the deployment template.

    Hello @Diogo Correia,

    welcome to this moderated Azure community forum.

    it seems you want to set a 'network-scoped alias for the container' like seen here.

    I expected you should be able to set a network alias using the Azure IoT Edge module container create options.

    Then I found this issue that seems to tell that this is not possible in an EFLOW situation, this technology you use.

    I recommend starting a new issue on the GitHub page so you get support right from the team behind Azure IoT Edge.
