Settings

Enable or disable extensions available in the Marketplace

Docker Extensions is switched on by default. To change your settings:

  1. Navigate to Settings, or Preferences if you’re a Mac user.
  2. Select the Extensions tab.
  3. Next to Enable Docker Extensions, select or clear the checkbox to set your desired state.
  4. In the bottom-right corner, click Apply & Restart.

Enable or disable extensions not available in the Marketplace

You can install extensions through the Marketplace or through the Extensions SDK tools. You can choose to only allow published extensions (extensions that have been reviewed and published in the Extensions Marketplace).

  1. Navigate to Settings, or Preferences if you’re a Mac user.
  2. Select the Extensions tab.
  3. Next to Allow only extensions distributed through the Docker Marketplace, select or clear the checkbox to set your desired state.
  4. In the bottom-right corner, click Apply & Restart.

See containers created by extensions

By default, containers created by extensions are hidden from the list of containers in Docker Dashboard and the Docker CLI. To make them visible update your settings:

  1. Navigate to Settings, or Preferences if you’re a Mac user.
  2. Select the Extensions tab.
  3. Next to Show Docker Extensions system containers, select or clear the checkbox to set your desired state.
  4. In the bottom-right corner, click Apply & Restart.

Note

Enabling extensions does not use computer resources (CPU / Memory) by itself.

Specific extensions might use computer resources, depending on the features and implementation of each extension, but there is no reserved resources or usage cost associated with enabling extensions.

Submit feedback

Feedback can be given to an extension author through a dedicated Slack channel or Github. To submit feedback about a particular extension:

  1. Navigate to Docker Dashboard and from the menu bar select the ellipsis to the right of Extensions.
  2. Click Manage Extensions.
  3. Select the extension you want to provide feedback on.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the extension’s description and, depending on the extension, select:
    • Support
    • Slack
    • Issues. You’ll be sent to a page outside of Docker Desktop to submit your feedback.

If an extension does not provide a way for you to give feedback, contact us and we’ll pass on the feedback for you. To provide feedback, select the Give feedback to the right of Extensions Marketplace.
