Docker ( is an open platform making it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers.

This article describes the steps required to run Joget on Docker. With Docker, you can easily deploy Joget with just a single command. Public Joget Docker images are hosted in the Docker Hub repository ( )

Prerequisite: Install Docker

Install Docker following the docs at  There are instructions for Linux, Windows or Mac.

Option 1: Run Joget with Embedded MySQL

The easiest way is to run a Joget container which also contains a MySQL database:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -v /var/lib/mysql --name joget jogetworkflow/joget-enterprise

With just a single command, you will have an entire running installation of Joget. Browse to the installation at http://your_docker_host:8080/jw

Option 2: Run Joget with Separate MySQL and Data Volume

For better flexibility and manageability, you can run a Joget container separately from the database and shared data volume:


# create a volume container for shared data
docker volume create jogetdata

# run a MySQL database container
docker run -d --name jogetdb -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=jwdb -e MYSQL_USER=joget -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=joget -e MYSQL_DATABASE=jwdb mysql:5.7

# run a Joget container
docker run -d --link jogetdb:jwdb --name joget -p 8080:8080 -e MYSQL_HOST=jwdb -e MYSQL_DATABASE=jwdb -e MYSQL_PORT=3306 -e MYSQL_USER=joget -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=joget --mount source=jogetdata,target=/opt/joget/wflow jogetworkflow/joget-enterprise

Browse to the installation at http://your_docker_host:8080/jw

Preserve MAC Address for Joget License

Once the docker instance is up, you may want to obtain the MAC address of the docker instance by using the following command.

sudo docker inspect --format='{{range .NetworkSettings.Networks}}{{.MacAddress}}{{end}}' joget

After you obtain the MAC address, you may preserve the MAC address the next time you create the same Joget instance again to ensure that Joget license tied to it continue to be valid.

docker run -ti --mac-address 00:00:00:00:00:11 -d -p 8080:8080 -v /var/lib/mysql --name joget3 jogetworkflow/joget-enterprise
