Docker run configurations
Use Docker run configurations to build Docker images and run containers from IntelliJ IDEA. For example, you can run a container with the database used by your application backend. Or you can build an image with your application binary, dependencies, and any other necessary files. This is called "dockerizing" an application.
Create a Docker run configuration
From the main menu, select.
In the Run/Debug Configurations dialog, click , expand the Docker group, and select the desired type of run configuration.
IntelliJ IDEA provides the following types of Docker run configurations:

For a specific example, see Run a database in a Docker container.
Created automatically when you run a container from a Dockerfile. For more information, see Dockerfile run configuration.
For a specific example, see Dockerize a Java application.
Created automatically when you run a multi-container Docker application from a Docker Compose file. For more information, see Docker-compose run configuration.
