Install Docker Scout

The Docker Scout CLI plugin comes pre-installed with Docker Desktop.

If you run Docker Engine without Docker Desktop, Docker Scout doesn't come pre-installed, but you can install it as a standalone binary.

To install the latest version of the plugin, run the following commands:

$ curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/docker/scout-cli/main/install.sh -o install-scout.sh
$ sh install-scout.sh

Note

Always examine scripts downloaded from the internet before running them locally. Before installing, make yourself familiar with potential risks and limitations of the convenience script.

If you want to install the plugin manually, you can find full instructions and links to download in the scout-cli repository.

The Docker Scout CLI plugin is also available as a container image and as a GitHub action.
