ParseError: XMLHttpRequest failed: "Unable to connect to the Parse API" Docker

hi, i am trying to build my nextjs app that uses ISR and the pages gets dynamic data from moralis ( The app builds fine locally, but it’s timing out when i try to build it in docker for rolling out the application. Has anyone run into this issue? Thx in advance.

Here is the error I am getting when I try to build the docker image:
#0 215.2 info - Collecting page data…
#0 260.7 /app/node_modules/moralis/lib/node/RESTController.js:430
#0 260.7 error = new _ParseError.default(_ParseError.default.CONNECTION_FAILED, XMLHttpRequest failed: ${JSON.stringify(message)});
#0 260.7 ^
#0 260.7
#0 260.7 ParseError: XMLHttpRequest failed: β€œUnable to connect to the Parse API”

when I build the project without docker, everything works perfectly:

Why would it need to connect to parse server at build time?

That’s a great question. Anyone from moralis who has done builds on docker who might know?

Regarding the why at build time. Looks like you are using nextjs, probably it is generating statically generated pages or prepares server side used props that are fetched with privileged requests at build time and then served at runtime to the client upon request of that page / route.

Regarding the connectivity issue within the containerized environment, you can try to replace the build process with simple shell execution of ping requests to or to ensure that the application actually has internet access. Alternatively you might want to check configuration options for the moralis credentials that could default to something unexpected.
