Minecraft Bedrock Server has now been added to the Marketplace. Minecraft Bedrock Edition is the officially supported console version of Minecraft developed by Microsoft with a wide range of compatibility from Xbox and Playstation to iOS and Android. It allows players to build worlds and play together in multiplayer environments. This server is only compatible with Minecraft Bedrock Edition. If running the Java Edition client you will want to install Minecraft Java Edition.

You can find Minecraft Bedrock Server by clicking Marketplace and then Applications to show all or searching by name.

Installing is as easy as setting an environment name for the server and region to install. After a few minutes your server will be up and running and ready to accept connections from players.

To connect to the server you’ll want to take note of the server hostname and port number provided. Open your client and access the server list.

Click Add Server and type in your server address and port number.

Once the server is added and it has booted (Bedrock will take several minutes start up) you should be able to connect.

Our implementation of Minecraft Bedrock Server uses Docker and you can customize a variety of settings through the use of environment variables. For a full list of documented options visit https://hub.docker.com/r/itzg/minecraft-bedrock-server. To add variables to your container, after install you will click the gear icon and select Variables where you can add your own settings in key/value format.

With any change to variables you will need to restart the server for those changes to take effect.
