Deploying Docker Community Edition (CE) for Azure (stable) fails with error - "Offer​ ​with​ ​PublisherId:​ ​docker​ ​and​ ​OfferId:​ ​docker-ce-basic​ ​not​ ​found"

(Cveerapaneni) #1

Expected behavior

Attempting​ ​to​ ​deploy​ ​Docker​ ​CE​ ​for​ ​Azure​ ​by​ ​following​ ​the​ ​instructions​ ​in​ ​"Docker​ ​for​ ​Azure​ ​setup​ ​&​ ​prerequisites"​ ​page​ ​should​ ​deploy​ ​the​ ​necessary​ ​infrastructure​ ​and​ ​configure​ ​swarm​ ​mode​ ​in​ ​Azure.

Actual behavior

Upon​ ​clicking​ ​"Purchase"​ ​in​ ​the​ ​custom​ ​template,​ ​the​ ​validation​ ​step​ ​fails​ ​with​ ​the​ ​below​ ​error:
“Offer​ ​with​ ​PublisherId:​ ​docker​ ​and​ ​OfferId:​ ​docker-ce-basic​ ​not​ ​found”

Additional Information

Error screenshot is attached.

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  • a) From the link (, click on “Deploy Docker Community Edition (CE) for Azure (stable)” which should log you in to Azure Portal and launches the template.
  • b) Complete the form (tested with 1 worker and manager count; 3 worker and manager count; both exhibit the same problem)
  • c) When I say “Purchase”, it performs validations and they fail. Validation failure is in the screenshot error.png.
  • d) When I check the External Services, I see the status for ‘Docker for Azure CE Image’ shows as ‘Canceled’.

Can you please let me know how I can bypass these issues so that I can proceed with the swarm-mode.


Thanks & Regards,

@di9383 - Raised a ticket with Microsoft. Will update once I hear from them. If you happen to come across any solution in the meantime, request you to post the same here.

Response I got from Microsoft Support:

I have an update from Engineering team that you were deploying docker for Azure CE from some template URL that is outdated. Hence I would request you to use the below steps to deploy Docker CE.

  • Login to
  • Click Add a new resource
  • Type “docker for azure ce” and search
  • Then follow the wizard to complete the deployment

I tried the below url:

I’m now able to deploy successfully (probably as MS support claimed - the link might have been pointing to an outdated image).
