This keeps the infrastructure that builds docker images for GraphDB

Check Docker Hub Images for information on how to use the images.

Note that to use the docker images, you must get a license from us first.

Currently there are no public images for GraphDB Free and you will have to build those if needed from the zip distribution that you get after registering on our website.

Building a docker image based on the free edition

You will need docker and make installed on your machine.

  1. Checkout this repository
  2. Register on the Ontotext website for the GraphDB Free edition. Download the zip file and place it in the free-edition subdirectory
  3. Run
make free VERSION=<the-version-that-you-got>

for example the most recent version as of this writing is 8.0.6 so run

make free VERSION=8.0.6

this will build an image that you can use called ontotext/graphdb:8.0.6-free. You can run the image now with

docker run -d -p 7200:7200 graphdb-free

Consult the docker hub documentation for more information.


You can report issues in the GitHub issue tracker or at graphdb-support at


You are invited to contribute new features, fixes, or updates, large or small; we are always thrilled to receive pull requests, and do our best to process them as fast as we can.

Before you start to code, we recommend discussing your plans through a GitHub issue, especially for more ambitious contributions. This gives other contributors a chance to point you in the right direction, give you feedback on your design, and help you find out if someone else is working on the same thing.

Making changes to the images and building your own version

The following command should be able to build you a custom image that takes your local changes into account

make ee VERSION=<version-of-graphdb-you-want>

for the enterprise edition and

make se VERSION=<version-of-graphdb-you-want>

for the standard edition
