Prerequisites: Docker, Pulsar (2.11 or newer)
If you are using an older version of Pulsar, we provide special docker images - Please get in touch.


Get the Streamvisor docker image:

docker pull
docker run --name streamvisor \
  -p 8888:8888 \

Access the Streamvisor UI in your browser at http://localhost:8888.
Log in using credentials.

Connecting from Docker to a local Pulsar instance

If you want to connect to a Pulsar instance that is running locally (not in Docker), you have to set host.docker.internal as the URL when creating an environment as shown below:

Service URL:        pulsar://host.docker.internal:6650
Service HTTP URL:   http://host.docker.internal:8080

This allows the Docker container to open a connection to your host machine.

Configuration examples

The Streamvisor docker image can be configured by passing in environment variables.
For a full reference of configuration properties, please refer to the Configuration Reference.

Some common examples are provided below:

Launching with custom admin user credentials

docker run --name streamvisor \
  -p 8888:8888 \
  -e \

Launching with a pre-created Pulsar environment

docker run --name streamvisor \
  -p 8888:8888 \
  -e STREAMVISOR_BOOTSTRAPENV_SERVICEURL=http://my.pulsar.svc:8080 \
  -e STREAMVISOR_BOOTSTRAPENV_BROKERURL=pulsar://my.pulsar.svc:6650 \

Docker Volumes

Streamvisor stores internal data under /streamvisor/data. For this data to persist between docker runs, you have to expose it as a volume as shown below:

docker run --name streamvisor \
-p 8888:8888 \
-v streamvisor-vol:/streamvisor/data \
