- ancestor=([:tag]||image@digest ⟨ mailto:image@digest⟩ )
containers created from an image or a descendant.
- before=(|)
- expose=([/]|/[])
- exited= an exit code of
- health=(starting|healthy|unhealthy|none)

- isolation=(default|process|hyperv) (Windows daemon only)
- is-task=(true|false)
- label= or label==
- name= a container’s name
- network=(|)
- publish=([/]|/[])
- since=(|)
- status=(created|restarting|removing|running|paused|exited)
- volume=(|)

Format

The formatting option (--format) pretty-prints container output using a Go template.

Valid placeholders for the Go template are listed below:
- .ID - Container ID.
- .Image - Image ID.
- .Command - Quoted command.
- .CreatedAt - Time when the container was created.
- .RunningFor - Elapsed time since the container was started.
- .Ports - Exposed ports.
- .Status - Container status.
- .Size - Container disk size.
- .Names - Container names.
- .Labels - All labels assigned to the container.
- .Label - Value of a specific label for this container.
For example ’{{.Label "com.docker.swarm.cpu"}}’.
- .Mounts - Names of the volumes mounted in this container.
- .Networks - Names of the networks attached to this container.
