Community images are published to DockerHub, as is the longstanding practice. Docker is currently semi-retiring their old "store" portion of DockerHub leaving a confusing interface to find our containers.  We expect that Docker will clear this up in the next few months.

In the meanwhile, you can easily find InterSystems community containers via the InterSystems Organization on DockerHub:

And images with ZPM package manager 0.3.2 are available accordingly:



And to launch IRIS do:

docker run --rm --name my-iris -d --publish 9091:1972 --publish 9092:52773 intersystemsdc/iris-community:2022.

docker run --rm --name my-iris -d --publish 9091:1972 --publish 9092:52773 intersystemsdc/iris-ml-community:2022.

docker run --rm --name my-iris -d --publish 9091:1972 --publish 9092:52773 intersystemsdc/iris-community:2022.

docker run --rm --name my-iris -d --publish 9091:1972 --publish 9092:52773 intersystemsdc/irishealth-community:2022.

And for terminal do:

docker exec -it my-iris iris session IRIS

and to start the control panel:


To stop and destroy container do:

docker stop my-iris

And the FROM clause in dockerfile can look like this:

FROM intersystemsdc/iris-community:2022.

Or to take the latest image:

FROM intersystemsdc/iris-community

So if you are on the latest image already just rebuild the repository to get the latest IRIS production image with ZPM onboard.
