Ability to add file to a specific directory

See original GitHub issue

Description of the issue: Some web apps require static files to be copied into resources’ staticdirectory. When adding arbitrary files to Jib, it can be more useful to be able to specify target directory.

Similar to the way that a JAR is constructed:

Current workaround is to copy the files into src/main/resources, but these are generated files and shouldn’t go into src. See

jib-gradle-plugin Configuration: See

I think this covers what you’re asking for:

tl;dr - extraDirectories will allow something similar to the following:




jib {
  extraDirectories {
    paths {
      path {
        from = 'src/main/custom-dir'
        into = '/target/on/container'

@saturnism @mraible Jib 2.3.0 is released with this very handy feature. Now you can designate target directories with jib.extraDirectories.paths.path.into. See for an example.
