The Github repository houses the components needed to build NetBox as a container. Images are built regularly using the code in that repository and are pushed to Docker Hub, Quay.io and GitHub Container Registry.

Do you have any questions? Before opening an issue on Github, please join our Slack and ask for help in the

#netbox-docker
channel.

Quickstart

To get NetBox Docker up and running run the following commands. There is a more complete Getting Started guide on our wiki which explains every step.

git clone -b release https://github.com/netbox-community/netbox-docker.git
cd netbox-docker
tee docker-compose.override.yml <

The whole application will be available after a few minutes. Open the URL

http://0.0.0.0:8000/
in a web-browser. You should see the NetBox homepage. In the top-right corner you can login. The default credentials are:
  • Username: admin
  • Password: admin
  • API Token: 0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567

Container Image Tags

New container images are built and published automatically every ~24h.

We recommend to use either the

vX.Y.Z-a.b.c
tags or the
vX.Y-a.b.c
tags in production!
  • vX.Y.Z-a.b.c
    ,
    vX.Y-a.b.c
    : These are release builds containing NetBox version
    vX.Y.Z
    . They contain the support files of NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    . You must use NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    to guarantee the compatibility. These images are automatically built from the corresponding releases of NetBox.
  • latest-a.b.c
    : These are release builds, containing the latest stable version of NetBox. They contain the support files of NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    . You must use NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    to guarantee the compatibility. These images are automatically built from the
    master
    branch of NetBox
    .
  • snapshot-a.b.c
    : These are pre-release builds. They contain the support files of NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    . You must use NetBox Docker version
    a.b.c
    to guarantee the compatibility. These images are automatically built from the
    develop
    branch of NetBox
    .

For each of the above tag, there is an extra tag:

  • vX.Y.Z
    ,
    vX.Y
    : This is the same version as
    vX.Y.Z-a.b.c
    (or
    vX.Y-a.b.c
    , respectively). It always points to the latest version of NetBox Docker.
  • latest
    This is the same version as
    latest-a.b.c
    . It always points to the latest version of NetBox Docker.
  • snapshot
    This is the same version as
    snapshot-a.b.c
    . It always points to the latest version of NetBox Docker.

Then there is currently one extra tags for each of the above tags:

  • -ldap
    : These container images contain additional dependencies and configuration files for connecting NetBox to an LDAP directory. Learn more about that in our wiki.

Documentation

Please refer to our wiki on Github for further information on how to use the NetBox Docker image properly. The wiki covers advanced topics such as using files for secrets, configuring TLS, deployment to Kubernetes, monitoring and configuring NAPALM and LDAP.

Our wiki is a community effort. Feel free to correct errors, update outdated information or provide additional guides and insights.

Getting Help

Feel free to ask questions in our Github Community or join our Slack and ask in our channel

#netbox-docker
, which is free to use and where there are almost always people online that can help you in the Slack channel.

If you need help with using NetBox or developing for it or against it's API you may find the

#netbox
channel on the same Slack instance very helpful.

Dependencies

This project relies only on Docker and docker-compose meeting these requirements:

  • The Docker version must be at least
    19.03
    .
  • The docker-compose version must be at least
    1.28.0
    .

To check the version installed on your system run

docker --version
and
docker-compose --version
.

Updating

Please read the release notes carefully when updating to a new image version. Note that the version of the NetBox Docker container image must stay in sync with the code.

If you update for the first time, be sure to follow our How To Update NetBox Docker guide in the wiki.

Rebuilding the Image

./build.sh
can be used to rebuild the container image. See
./build.sh --help
for more information.

For more details on custom builds consult our wiki.

Tests

We have a test script. It runs NetBox's own unit tests and ensures that all initializers work:

IMAGE=netboxcommunity/netbox:latest ./test.sh
