In this article, we will see how to run Jenkins, GitLab, and Bitbucket docker images in a container on Docker-desktop installed on Windows. Ensure Docker-desktop is running on Windows allowing you to run Linux Containers.

All the persisted Volumes on the host will be found in this folder-


or in Docker-desktop dashboard



>> Create Dockerfile with this content (it will install .Net & Gitversion as well)  and build it to create a new image-

FROM jenkins/jenkins:2.319.1-jdk11
USER root
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y lsb-release
RUN curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.asc \
RUN echo "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) \
  signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.asc] \ \
  $(lsb_release -cs) stable" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y docker-ce-cli

#added by me
# Add Microsoft package signing key to trusted keys (to allow installation of .net sdk)
RUN curl -o packages-microsoft-prod.deb -L \
     && dpkg -i packages-microsoft-prod.deb \
     && rm packages-microsoft-prod.deb

# Install dotnet 5.0
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends \
    apt-transport-https \

# Add dotnet tools to path
ENV PATH=$PATH:~/.dotnet/tools

# Install GitVersion (using dotnet tool install)
RUN dotnet tool install --global --version 5.8.1 GitVersion.Tool

USER jenkins
RUN jenkins-plugin-cli --plugins "blueocean:1.25.2 docker-workflow:1.26"


>> Run this command to create a new image

docker build -t jenkins-with-dotnet:1.0 .


>>Start the Jenkins container

docker run --name jenkins-with-dotnet --rm --detach \
  --env DOCKER_HOST=tcp://docker:2376 \
  --env DOCKER_CERT_PATH=/certs/client --env DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY=1 \
  --volume jenkins-data:/var/jenkins_home \
  --volume jenkins-docker-certs:/certs/client:ro \
  --publish 8080:8080 --publish 51000:50000 jenkins-with-dotnet:1.0


>> Try to access the Jenkins using – http://localhost:8080

>> To unlock Jenkins, follow this article- to get the password.

docker exec ${CONTAINER_ID or CONTAINER_NAME} cat /var/jenkins_home/secrets/initialAdminPassword


Now it will take you through a number of screens to create a user and then you will be able to access Jenkins.

Run Jenkins & bitbucket as containers in Docker-desktop



Just start the Bitbucket container using this command

docker run -v /data/bitbucket:/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket --name="bitbucket" -d -p 7990:7990 -p 7999:7999 atlassian/bitbucket


Once the container is up and running, access it using- http://localhost:7990



Start the GitLab using the docker command

docker run --name gitlab --detach \
  --env DOCKER_HOST=tcp://docker:2376 \
  --env DOCKER_CERT_PATH=/certs/client --env DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY=1 \
  --hostname \
  --publish 443:443 --publish 80:80 --publish 22:22 \
  --restart always \
  --volume gitlab-config:/etc/gitlab \
  --volume gitlab-logs:/var/log/gitlab \
  --volume gitlab-data:/var/opt/gitlab \
  --shm-size 256m gitlab/gitlab-ee:latest


It will take some to start the container. You can access it using http://localhost:80

It will show the login screen, use username as root, and find the password using this command

docker exec -it gitlab grep 'Password:' /etc/gitlab/initial_root_password
