buildah-inspect - Man Page

Display information about working containers or images.


buildah inspect [options] [--] object


Prints the low-level information on Buildah object(s) (e.g. container, images) identified by name or ID. By default, this will render all results in a JSON array. If the container and image have the same name, this will return container JSON for unspecified type. If a format is specified, the given template will be executed for each result.


--format template
Use template as a Go template when formatting the output.

Users of this option should be familiar with the text/template package ⟨⟩ in the Go standard library, and of internals of Buildah's implementation.

--type container | image
Specify whether object is a container or an image.


buildah inspect containerID

buildah inspect --type container containerID

buildah inspect --type image imageID

buildah inspect --format '{{.OCIv1.Config.Env}}' alpine
