Run Docker Container

CloudBeaver container image is on DockerHub:

  • dbeaver/cloudbeaver:latest - latest release build.
  • dbeaver/cloudbeaver:dev - latest developer build.


To install the latest version of CloudBeaver use the following script:

sudo docker pull dbeaver/cloudbeaver:latest


To run cloudbaver in the terminal:

sudo docker run --name cloudbeaver --rm -ti -p 8080:8978 -v /var/cloudbeaver/workspace:/opt/cloudbeaver/workspace dbeaver/cloudbeaver:latest

Then switch to the browser and open http://localhost:8080/

Daemon mode

Add the following parameters:

-d --restart unless-stopped 

Accessing databases on the localhost

If you need to access the database server on the host machine, add the following parameter in docker run: (on Linux only)

 --network host

Cloudbeaver will work in the host machine network.
If this mode is not suitable for your network environment then you can run the container in the following way:

export CB_LOCAL_HOST_ADDR=$(ifconfig | grep -E "([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}" | grep -v | awk '{ print $2 }' | cut -f2 -d: | head -n1)

docker run --name cloudbeaver --rm -ti -p 8080:8978 --add-host=host.docker.internal:${CB_LOCAL_HOST_ADDR} -v /var/cloudbeaver/workspace:/opt/cloudbeaver/workspace dbeaver/cloudbeaver:dev

or just run script deploy/docker/ It passes the IP address of host machine to the container.

Docker parameters explanation

Parameter Explanation
--name cloudbeaver Assign container ID (cloudbeaver)
--rm Removes container on stop
-ti Enables terminal mode (allows to stop container with CTRL+C)

-v local_path:/opt/cloudbeaver/workspace Mounts local folder `/var/cloudbeaver/workspace' to the server workspace. Required to keep CloudBeaver data after container restart.

dbeaver/cloudbeaver:latest Container ID

Run Cloudbeaver server with non-root user

If you want to run CloudBeaver with a non-root user, you have to build your own image with a user inside before the container starts.

Create Dockerfile which contains:

FROM dbeaver/cloudbeaver:latest
RUN groupadd cloudbeaver
RUN useradd -ms /bin/bash -g cloudbeaver cloudbeaver
RUN chown -R cloudbeaver ./
USER cloudbeaver

Run this command to build the image from Dockerfile

docker build -t my-cloudbeaver .

To run CloudBeaver in the terminal:

sudo docker run --name cloudbeaver --rm -ti -p 8080:8978 -v /var/cloudbeaver/workspace:/opt/cloudbeaver/workspace my-cloudbeaver
