Docker How To Find Container Id
Finding a Docker container ID is easy.
To start you should see the ID in the output from the docker ps command:
If you just want the IDs by themselves you can use the -q parameter like this:
docker ps -q
The above would return a list of IDs.
If you want to return the list of IDs for a specific container you can use the following
sudo docker ps -aqf "name=^mycontainer$"
On MacOS and Windows you won’t need “sudo” at the beginning of the command. The regex anchors “^” and “$” help you avoid matching containers with similar names.
