Importing saved containers to Podman

Consider importing saved containers to continue using familiar containers.


  • Podman

  • You saved your existing containers by running the command:

    $ podman save <your_container> > <your_container_archive>.tar


  • Import your existing containers into Podman. Run the command for each container archive:

    $ podman import <your_container_archive>.tar


  • Your imported containers appear in the Podman Desktop Images section.
