Usage:  docker volume ls [OPTIONS]

Options:
  -f, --filter value   Provide filter values (i.e. 'dangling=true') (default [])
                       - dangling=<boolean> a volume if referenced or not
                       - driver=<string> a volume's driver name

Example output:

$docker volume create --name tyler
tyler
$ docker volume ls
DRIVER              VOLUME NAME
local               rosemary
local               tyler

Filtering

The filtering flag (-f or --filter) format is of “key=value”. If there is more than one filter, then pass multiple flags (e.g., --filter "foo=bar" --filter "bif=baz")

The currently supported filters are:

  • dangling (boolean - true or false, 0 or 1)
  • driver (a volume driver’s name)
  • name (a volume’s name)

dangling

The dangling filter matches on all volumes not referenced by any containers

$ docker run -d  -v tyler:/tmpwork  busybox
f86a7dd02898067079c99ceacd810149060a70528eff3754d0b0f1a93bd0af18
$ docker volume ls -f dangling=true
DRIVER              VOLUME NAME
local               rosemary

driver

The driver filter matches on all or part of a volume’s driver name.

The following filter matches all volumes with a driver name containing the local string.

$ docker volume ls -f driver=local
DRIVER              VOLUME NAME
local               rosemary
local               tyler

name

The name filter matches on all or part of a volume’s name.

The following filter matches all volumes with a name containing the rose string.

$ docker volume ls -f name=rose
DRIVER              VOLUME NAME
local               rosemary
