Silence Warnings from PostgreSQL

If you observer a plethora of warnings in your PostgreSQL Docker setup like:

FATAL: role "root" does not exist

If these errors are emitted from the PostgreSQL healthcheck, they can be silenced by adding the user parameter to the health check command for pg_isready in your docker-compose.yml file.

   test: ["CMD-SHELL", "pg_isready -U postgres"]
   interval: 30s
   timeout: 30s
   retries: 3

This works for official PostgreSQL Docker images, where a postgres user is created, adjust to your own settings accordingly
