  • First step is to create a repository
    • aws ecr create-repository --repository-name <repository-name> --image-scanning-configuration scanOnPush=true --region <region>
    • We can include slashes in repo name for eg: company-name/<something>
  • Once you create a repo you can push images in it using the repository URI
    • <account-id>.dkr.ecr.<region><repo-name>
  • Describing the repositories to see all the repositories
    • aws ecr describe-repositories -region <region>
  • Building docker images

    • docker build -t image-name .: assuming Dockerfile is in the same directory.
  • To push the docker image to ECR we need to login

    • If you login successfully you should see Login Succeeded message
  • We need to tag the docker images with the same name as the repository with version
    • docker tag <image-name> <account-id>.dkr.ecr.<region><repo-name>:1
    • We do this in order to tell docker that we want this image to be pushed to ECR
    • Tag basically means that we are renaming the image.
    • Here 1 is the version number we can also have latest or any other version
In ECR you create a repository per image.
  • For each image you have its own repository.
  • We store different tags/versions of the same image in our repository.
  • Image naming in ECR:
    • registryDomain/imageName:tag
  • We can do docker pull nginx:latest since it is equivalent to docker pull
    • But we can't skip this in private repositories.
