Run OpenSearch Dashboards using Docker

You can start OpenSearch Dashboards using docker run after creating a Docker network and starting OpenSearch, but the process of connecting OpenSearch Dashboards to OpenSearch is significantly easier with a Docker Compose file.

  1. Run docker pull opensearchproject/opensearch-dashboards:2.

  2. Create a docker-compose.yml file appropriate for your environment. A sample file that includes OpenSearch Dashboards is available on the OpenSearch Docker installation page.

    Just like opensearch.yml, you can pass a custom opensearch_dashboards.yml to the container in the Docker Compose file.

  3. Run docker-compose up.

    Wait for the containers to start. Then see the OpenSearch Dashboards documentation.

  4. When finished, run docker-compose down.
