  • Official Docker images for Connect released!

    We've created official Docker images you can use to easily containerize and launch Connect instances! There are multiple tags available that use different base images and Java (OpenJDK) distributions as well. Configuring can be done via environment variables, Docker Secrets, and/or volumes.

    docker run -p 8443:8443 nextgenhealthcare/connect
    More information here:

    You can even use Docker to automatically spin up both Connect and your database all in one go. Check out our examples on the Docker Hub site or in our examples directory.

    If you want to build the images yourself or extend them for your own purposes, the Dockerfiles are available on our GitHub repository here:

    Try it out, and let us know how we can improve it! Feel free to submit issues or pull requests, or just comment in this thread!

    Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

    This is great, using it now which works pretty well so far! Right now I am using the following docker-compose config:

    image: nextgenhealthcare/connect
    - 8080:8080/tcp
    - 8443:8443/tcp
    - ./connect/appdata:/opt/connect/appdata
    - ./connect/conf:/usr/local/mirthconnect/conf

    The conf folder seems to be empty though with those settings, still the config seems to be preserved between restarts. Is everything saved in appdata?
