The Github repository houses the components needed to build NetBox as a Docker container. Images are built using this code and are released to Docker Hub and once a day.

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


Docker Tags

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

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


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
cd netbox-docker
tee docker-compose.override.yml <

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


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

Getting Help

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

, 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

channel on the same Slack instance very helpful.


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

  • The Docker version must be at least
  • The docker-compose version must be at least

To check the version installed on your system run

docker --version
docker-compose --version

Breaking Changes

From time to time it might become necessary to re-engineer the structure of this setup. Things like the

file or your Kubernetes or OpenShift configurations have to be adjusted as a consequence.

Since November 2019 each image built from this repo contains a

label. (The images contained labels since April 2018, although in November 2019 the labels' names changed.) You can check the label of your local image by running
docker inspect netboxcommunity/netbox:v2.7.1 --format "{{json .Config.Labels}}"

Please read the release notes carefully when updating to a new image version.

Rebuilding the Image

can be used to rebuild the Docker image. See
./ --help
for more information.

For more details on custom builds consult our wiki.


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

IMAGE=netboxcommunity/netbox:latest ./
