Create a Container Registry

Prerequisites: Make sure you have the appropriate permissions. Only contract administrators, owners, and users with the Manage Registry permission can create a Container Registry.

Create a Container Registry

1. In the DCD, go to Menu > Containers > Container Registry.

2. In the Container Registry Manager, click Add a Registry to start creating a new container registry.

3. Provide an appropriate Name.


It is not possible to change the registry name later.

The registry name:

  • must be globally unique across all customers.

  • must contain only alphanumeric characters and dashes.

  • must be between 3 and 63 characters in length.

  • must begin with an character between a-z.

  • must end with an alphanumeric character.

4. Choose the Location where you want your container registry to be run and the artifacts to be stored from the drop-down list.

Note: It is not possible to change the Location later.

5. Turn on the Vulnerability Scanning toggle so that your Container Registry is created with the vulnerability scanning enabled.

Note: We recommend that you create your Container Registry with Vulnerability Scanning enabled.

Vulnerability Scanning gives you the benefit of all artifacts being scanned for CVEs when pushed into a Container Registry and every time CVE databases are updated with newly identified CVEs. It is possible to add Vulnerability Scanning to a Container Registry. Once Vulnerability Scanning is enabled, it cannot be disabled later.

6. Click Add Registry. Your Container Registry and storage will be created.

Result: Your Container Registry is ready to use when its status is updated to Running.
