There are a few options, that helps to filter the list of images available.

  • Community, swiche between General version of IRIS and Community Edition
  • ARM64, to see only ARM64 images
  • Major versions only, filters to show only latest major versions (e.g. 2022.1.*, 2021.2.*, 2021.1.*,1.1.*)


  • Search by name and tag
  • Copy image name with tag to clipboard
  • Easy Pull images
  • Delette images (if not used)
