Skip Docker Goals Bound to Maven Phases

You can pass options to maven to disable the docker goals.

Maven Option What Does it Do? Default Value
dockerfile.skip Disables the entire dockerfile plugin; all goals become no-ops. false Disables the build goal; it becomes a no-op. false
dockerfile.tag.skip Disables the tag goal; it becomes a no-op. false
dockerfile.push.skip Disables the push goal; it becomes a no-op. false

For example, to skip the entire dockerfile plugin:

mvn clean package -Ddockerfile.skip
