Docker debug and fast mode settings
On this page, you can configure Docker settings related to running and debugging Docker projects from the IDE.
Pull Docker images and inspect them during the startup
When you open a Docker project, JetBrains Rider will prepare all referenced Docker images in advance. This may decrease the startup performance, but it will make your project launch significantly faster when you run or debug it from the IDE.
If you often restart your projects or the startup takes too long, you may want to clear this checkbox to disable this behavior.
For more information, see Run and debug Docker projects in fast mode.
Enable debugging for services that don't have build configuration
When you debug Docker Compose projects, debugging will be limited to the code of your project and JetBrains Rider will not attach the debugger to external services. Such services are included as ready-to-use images, and you normally don't want to debug them. These services are listed in docker-compose.yml but they do not have Dockerfile (section
Select this checkbox if you want to debug external services. Note that this may affect the performance of the debugger.
