The docker plugin can be used with HashiCorp Packer to manage containers with Docker.
Updated 4 months ago
The Packer Docker push post-processor takes an artifact from the docker-import post-processor and pushes it to a Docker registry.
This post-processor has only optional configuration:
aws_access_key(string) - The AWS access key used to communicate with AWS. Learn how to set this.
aws_secret_key(string) - The AWS secret key used to communicate with AWS. Learn how to set this.
aws_token(string) - The AWS access token to use. This is different from the access key and secret key. If you're not sure what this is, then you probably don't need it. This will also be read from the
aws_profile(string) - The AWS shared credentials profile used to communicate with AWS. Learn how to set this.
ecr_login(boolean) - Defaults to false. If true, the post-processor will login in order to push the image to Amazon EC2 Container Registry (ECR). The post-processor only logs in for the duration of the push. If true
login_serveris required and
login_passwordwill be ignored.
aws_force_use_public_ecr(boolean) - Defaults to false. If true, the post-processor will try to force push the image to ECR Public Gallery. However, this flag is optional if you specify the correct ECR Public URL in the
login_server, the post-processor will automatically detect it as ECR Public.
keep_input_artifact(boolean) - if true, do not delete the docker image after pushing it to the cloud. Defaults to true, but can be set to false if you do not need to save your local copy of the docker container.
platform(string) - Set platform if server is multi-platform capable.
login(boolean) - Defaults to false. If true, the post-processor will login prior to pushing. For log into ECR see
ecr_login. Note that a corresponding
logoutwill be performed right after the push. This may conflict with other parallel post-processor instances that also perform login/logout (e.g. if you're building and pushing several images in parallel). In that case, it's better to keep
falseand have the
docker logoutperformed out of band, separately from Packer.
login_username(string) - The username to use to authenticate to login.
login_password(string) - The password to use to authenticate to login.
login_server(string) - The server address to login to.
Note: When using Docker Hub or Quay registry servers,
must to be set to
login_password must to
be set to your registry credentials. When using Docker Hub,
Note: If you login using the credentials above, the post-processor will automatically log you out afterwards (just the server specified).
