In this section, you’ll learn how to get up and running with a stand-alone Anchore Engine installation for trial, demonstration and review with Docker Compose.
The following instructions assume you are using a system running Docker v1.12 or higher, and a version of Docker Compose that supports at least v2 of the docker-compose configuration format.
# curl -O https://engine.anchore.io/docs/quickstart/docker-compose.yaml # docker-compose up -d
After a few moments (depending on system speed), your Anchore Engine services should be up and running, ready to use. You can verify the containers are running with docker-compose:
# docker-compose ps Name Command State Ports ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- anchorequickstart_anchore-db_1 docker-entrypoint.sh postgres Up 5432/tcp anchorequickstart_analyzer_1 /docker-entrypoint.sh anch ... Up 8228/tcp anchorequickstart_api_1 /docker-entrypoint.sh anch ... Up 0.0.0.0:8228->8228/tcp anchorequickstart_catalog_1 /docker-entrypoint.sh anch ... Up 8228/tcp anchorequickstart_policy-engine_1 /docker-entrypoint.sh anch ... Up 8228/tcp anchorequickstart_simpleq_1 /docker-entrypoint.sh anch ... Up 8228/tcp
You can run a command to get the status of the Anchore Engine services:
# docker-compose exec api anchore-cli system status Service policy_engine (anchore-quickstart, http://policy-engine:8228): up Service simplequeue (anchore-quickstart, http://simpleq:8228): up Service catalog (anchore-quickstart, http://catalog:8228): up Service analyzer (anchore-quickstart, http://analyzer:8228): up Service apiext (anchore-quickstart, http://api:8228): up Engine DB Version: 0.0.13 Engine Code Version: 0.8.1
Note: The first time you run Anchore Engine, it will take some time (10+ minutes, depending on network speed) for the vulnerability data to get synced into the engine. For the best experience, wait until the core vulnerability data feeds have completed before proceeding. You can check the status of your feed sync using the CLI:
# docker-compose exec api anchore-cli system feeds list Feed Group LastSync RecordCount vulnerabilities alpine:3.10 2020-04-27T19:49:45.186409 1725 vulnerabilities alpine:3.11 2020-04-27T19:49:59.993730 1904 vulnerabilities alpine:3.3 2020-04-27T19:50:16.213013 457 vulnerabilities alpine:3.4 2020-04-27T19:50:20.128136 681 vulnerabilities alpine:3.5 2020-04-27T19:50:25.876762 875 vulnerabilities alpine:3.6 2020-04-27T19:50:33.361682 1051 vulnerabilities alpine:3.7 2020-04-27T19:50:42.354798 1395 vulnerabilities alpine:3.8 2020-04-27T19:50:54.311199 1486 vulnerabilities alpine:3.9 2020-04-27T19:51:07.340326 1558 vulnerabilities amzn:2 2020-04-27T19:51:20.726861 327 vulnerabilities centos:5 2020-04-27T19:51:31.586422 1347 vulnerabilities centos:6 2020-04-27T19:51:57.345700 1403 vulnerabilities centos:7 2020-04-27T19:52:26.350592 1063 vulnerabilities centos:8 2020-04-27T19:52:59.187517 215 vulnerabilities debian:10 2020-04-27T19:53:08.194067 22580 vulnerabilities debian:11 2020-04-27T19:56:03.833415 19681 vulnerabilities debian:7 2020-04-27T19:58:44.907852 20455 vulnerabilities debian:8 pending 12500 vulnerabilities debian:9 pending None vulnerabilities debian:unstable pending None vulnerabilities ol:5 pending None vulnerabilities ol:6 pending None vulnerabilities ol:7 pending None vulnerabilities ol:8 pending None vulnerabilities rhel:5 pending None vulnerabilities rhel:6 pending None vulnerabilities rhel:7 pending None vulnerabilities rhel:8 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:12.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:12.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:13.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:14.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:14.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:15.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:15.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:16.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:16.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:17.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:17.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:18.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:18.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:19.04 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:19.10 pending None vulnerabilities ubuntu:20.04 pending None
As soon as you see RecordCount values > 0 for all vulnerability groups, the system is fully populated and ready to present vulnerability results. Note that feed syncs are incremental, so the next time you start up Anchore Engine it will be ready immediately. The CLI tool includes a useful utility that will block until the feeds have completed a successful sync:
# docker-compose exec api anchore-cli system wait Starting checks to wait for anchore-engine to be available timeout=-1.0 interval=5.0 API availability: Checking anchore-engine URL (http://localhost:8228)... API availability: Success. Service availability: Checking for service set (catalog,apiext,policy_engine,simplequeue,analyzer)... Service availability: Success. Feed sync: Checking sync completion for feed set (vulnerabilities)... Feed sync: Checking sync completion for feed set (vulnerabilities)... ... ... Feed sync: Success.
Start using the anchore-engine service to analyze images - a short example follows which demonstrates a basic workflow of adding a container image for analysis, waiting for the analysis to complete, then running content reports, vulnerability scans and policy evaluations against the analyzed image.

Note: This document is intended to serve as a quickstart guide. Before moving further with Anchore to explore the scanning, policy evaluation, image content reporting, CI/CD integrations and other capabilities, it is highly recommended that you enhance your learning by reading the Overview sections to gain a deeper understanding of fundamentals, concepts, and proper usage.
Now that you have Anchore Engine running, you can begin to learn more about Anchore architecture, Anchore concepts, and Anchore usage.
Uncomment the following section at the bottom of the docker-compose.yaml file:
# # Uncomment this section to add a prometheus instance to gather metrics. This is mostly for quickstart to demonstrate prometheus metrics exported # prometheus: # image: docker.io/prom/prometheus:latest # depends_on: # - api # volumes: # - ./anchore-prometheus.yml:/etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml:z # logging: # driver: "json-file" # options: # max-size: 100m # ports: # - "9090:9090" #
For each service entry in the docker-compose.yaml, change the following to enable metrics in the API for each service
Download the example prometheus configuration into the same directory as the docker-compose.yaml file, with name anchore-prometheus.yml
curl -O https://engine.anchore.io/docs/quickstart/anchore-prometheus.yml docker-compose up -d
You should see a new container started and can access prometheus via your browser on
Uncomment the following section at the bottom of the docker-compose.yaml file:
# # Uncomment this section to run a swagger UI service, for inspecting and interacting with the anchore engine API via a browser (http://localhost:8080 by default, change if needed in both sections below) # swagger-ui-nginx: # image: docker.io/nginx:latest # depends_on: # - api # - swagger-ui # ports: # - "8080:8080" # volumes: # - ./anchore-swaggerui-nginx.conf:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:z # logging: # driver: "json-file" # options: # max-size: 100m # swagger-ui: # image: docker.io/swaggerapi/swagger-ui # environment: # - URL=http://localhost:8080/v1/swagger.json # logging: # driver: "json-file" # options: # max-size: 100m
Download the nginx configuration into the same directory as the docker-compose.yaml file, with name anchore-swaggerui-nginx.conf
curl -O https://engine.anchore.io/docs/quickstart/anchore-swaggerui-nginx.conf docker-compose up -d
You should see a new container started and can access swagger via your browser on
