docker-network-ls - list networks
docker network ls [-f|--filter[=]] [--no-trunc[=true|false]] [-q|--quiet[=true|false]] [--help]
Lists all the networks the Engine
daemon knows about. This includes the networks that span across multiple hosts in a cluster, for example:
$ docker network ls NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 7fca4eb8c647 bridge bridge 9f904ee27bf5 none null cf03ee007fb4 host host 78b03ee04fc4 multi-host overlay
--no-trunc option to display the full network id:
$ docker network ls --no-trunc NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 18a2866682b85619a026c81b98a5e375bd33e1b0936a26cc497c283d27bae9b3 none null c288470c46f6c8949c5f7e5099b5b7947b07eabe8d9a27d79a9cbf111adcbf47 host host 7b369448dccbf865d397c8d2be0cda7cf7edc6b0945f77d2529912ae917a0185 bridge bridge 95e74588f40db048e86320c6526440c504650a1ff3e9f7d60a497c4d2163e5bd foo bridge 63d1ff1f77b07ca51070a8c227e962238358bd310bde1529cf62e6c307ade161 dev bridge
The filtering flag (
--filter) format is a
key=value pair. If there is more than one filter, then pass multiple flags (e.g.
--filter "foo=bar" --filter "bif=baz"). Multiple filter flags are combined as an
OR filter. For example,
-f type=custom -f type=builtin returns both
The currently supported filters are:
type filter supports two values;
builtin displays predefined networks (
custom displays user defined networks.
The following filter matches all user defined networks:
$ docker network ls --filter type=custom NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 95e74588f40d foo bridge 63d1ff1f77b0 dev bridge
By having this flag it allows for batch cleanup. For example, use this filter to delete all user defined networks:
$ docker network rm `docker network ls --filter type=custom -q`
A warning will be issued when trying to remove a network that has containers attached.
name filter matches on all or part of a network's name.
The following filter matches all networks with a name containing the
$ docker network ls --filter name=foobar NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 06e7eef0a170 foobar bridge
You can also filter for a substring in a name as this shows:
$ docker network ls --filter name=foo NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 95e74588f40d foo bridge 06e7eef0a170 foobar bridge
id filter matches on all or part of a network's ID.
The following filter matches all networks with an ID containing the
$ docker network ls --filter id=63d1ff1f77b07ca51070a8c227e962238358bd310bde1529cf62e6c307ade161 NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 63d1ff1f77b0 dev bridge
You can also filter for a substring in an ID as this shows:
$ docker network ls --filter id=95e74588f40d NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 95e74588f40d foo bridge $ docker network ls --filter id=95e NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER 95e74588f40d foo bridge
-f, --filter= filter output based on conditions provided.
--no-trunc=true|false Do not truncate the output
-q, --quiet=true|false Only display numeric IDs
