Unable to run the docker file. After building my image...

I do see it when running docker ps -a

When I try docker run I get "Unable to find image 'sample-web-app:latest' locally"

I can see it in docker desktop and can run it without issue. I only see the error running from the command line.

Found it... When I ran docker run I did not specify the tag.

Once I added the tag or did not include it in the build it works.
