'table': Print output in table format with column headers (default)
'table TEMPLATE': Print output in table format using the given Go template

$ docker plugin ls

ID            NAME                                    DESCRIPTION                ENABLED
69553ca1d123  tiborvass/sample-volume-plugin:latest   A test plugin for Docker   true

Filtering (--filter)

The filtering flag (-f or --filter) format is of "key=value". If there is more than one filter, then pass multiple flags (e.g., --filter "foo=bar" --filter "bif=baz").

The currently supported filters are:

  • enabled (boolean - true or false, 0 or 1)
  • capability (string - currently volumedriver, networkdriver, ipamdriver, logdriver, metricscollector, or authz)


The enabled filter matches on plugins enabled or disabled.


The capability filter matches on plugin capabilities. One plugin might have multiple capabilities. Currently volumedriver, networkdriver, ipamdriver, logdriver, metricscollector, and authz are supported capabilities.

$ docker plugin install --disable vieux/sshfs

Installed plugin vieux/sshfs

$ docker plugin ls --filter enabled=true

ID                  NAME                DESCRIPTION         ENABLED

Format the output (--format)

The formatting options (--format) pretty-prints plugins output using a Go template.

Valid placeholders for the Go template are listed below:

.IDPlugin ID
.NamePlugin name and tag
.DescriptionPlugin description
.EnabledWhether plugin is enabled or not
.PluginReferenceThe reference used to push/pull from a registry

When using the --format option, the plugin ls command will either output the data exactly as the template declares or, when using the table directive, includes column headers as well.

The following example uses a template without headers and outputs the ID and Name entries separated by a colon (:) for all plugins:

$ docker plugin ls --format "{{.ID}}: {{.Name}}"

4be01827a72e: vieux/sshfs:latest

To list all plugins in JSON format, use the json directive:

$ docker plugin ls --format json
{"Description":"sshFS plugin for Docker","Enabled":false,"ID":"856d89febb1c","Name":"vieux/sshfs:latest","PluginReference":""}
