Build a Docker Product Image Locally

This example describes how to build a Docker image or our products using the build tools found in our Docker Builds repo, and a local copy of a product zip file.

Clone Build Repository

Open a terminal and clone the pingidentity-docker-builds repo. Enter:

git clone

Download a Product Zip File

  1. Go to Product Downloads and download the product you'd like to use to build a Docker image.

    Ensure you download the product distribution zip file and not the Windows installer.

  2. When the download has finished, rename it to For example:

  3. Move to the Build Directory

    In the pingidentity-docker-builds repo directory for each product. Move the file to the <product>/tmp directory, where /<product> is the name of one of our available products. For example:

    mv ~/Downloads/ \

Building the Docker Image

Prior to building the image, display the versions.json file in the product directory. You'll need to specify a valid version for the build script. Since you're providing the product zip file, it doesn't really matter which version you select as long as it's valid. For example, you can see that 10.1.0 is a valid product version for PingFederate.

product build versions

  1. Go to the base of the pingidentity-docker-builds repo. For example:

    cd ~/pingidentity/devops/pingidentity-docker-builds
  2. Our Docker images are built using common foundational layers that the product layer will need (such as, JVM, pingcommon, pingdatacommon). Because it's unlikely that you'll have the foundational layers locally, we'll build the product using the script. Going forward, if you want to use the same foundational layers, you need only run the script to build the product layer.

You'll need to specify the appropriate options when you run For PingFederate, the options might look like this:

  • -p (Product): pingfederate
  • -v (Version): 10.1.0
    • Note: this is the version retrieved from the versions.json file
  • -s (Shim): alpine
  • -j (Java): az11

To build the image, run the script with the appropriate options. For example:

./ci_scripts/ \
    -p pingfederate \
    -v 10.1 \
    -s alpine \
    -j az11

It's important that you build from the base of the repo as shown in the example.

When the build is completed, the product and base images are displayed. For example:

Re-Tagging the Local Image

You can change the tag of the created image and push it to your own Docker registry using the docker tag command:

docker tag [image id] \
    [Docker Registry]/[Organization]/[Image Name]:[tag]

For example:

docker tag a379dffedf13 \
