We provide pre-built docker images to quickly launch Axelor Open Suite in secure isolated container environment.


Install Docker on your system. Please follow the official installation documentation for detailed installation guide.

Run the image

You can use production ready pre-built docker image like this:

$ docker run -it -p 8080:80 axelor/aio-erp

Once, application initialization is complete, you can access the application at: http://localhost:8080

Run with SSL

If you want to use https, provide SSL certificates like this:

$ docker run -it \
    -v /path/to/certs:/etc/nginx/certs \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \

The certs directory should have following files:

  • certs/nginx.key - certificate key

  • certs/nginx.crt - certificate file

  • certs/dhparam.pem - DH parameters file

Run with base image

You can use your own axelor app with base docker image like this:

$ docker run -it \
  -v `pwd`/axelor-erp.war:/var/lib/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war \
  -p 8080:80 axelor/aio-base

or with SSL like this:

$ docker run -it \
    -v `pwd`/certs:/etc/nginx/certs:ro \
    -v `pwd`/axelor-erp.war:/var/lib/tomcat/webapps/ROOT.war \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 axelor/aio-base

Assuming you have axelor-erp.war and optionally SSL certs under certs directory of the current working directory. If not, replace `pwd` with the actual path.
