Conjur Tutorial - Enrolling an Application: extending the explanation

ls,

I do not know (yet) where I can post improvements/additions to Tutorials on the Conjur.org website.

I’d like to suggest an extension to the Prerequisites part

Current:

Prerequisites

Install the self-hosted Conjur software.

I like the idea of ‘execing’ into the containers too. Although there are a few steps like loading the policy that are easier outside of the container. Also, the end of the tutorial when you retrieve a secret is meant to demonstrate an application retrieving a secret from outside the container.

But I do agree that for a good chunk of the tutorial running the commands from outside seem weird at first. I just think going back and forth would make the tutorial choppier. Maybe another paragraph explaining why it is the way it is?

This is good feedback, thank you!
