The docker resource in Inspec should allow filter parameters

What if I as a customer do not want to retrieve all elements from the docker inspect output just to check one element using an Inspec profile check?

Allowing a filter parameter for this resource would greatly reduce the size of the reports, leading to more efficiency in processing and storage in Automate.


For example:


https://docs.chef.io/inspec/resources/docker/#objectid


Could instead be called with docker inspect filters like


describe docker.object(id,'{{range .NetworkSettings.Networks}}{{.IPAddress}}{{end}}') do
its('IPAddress') { should eq 'value' }
end
