Google Container Registry

Learn how to use GCR with Codefresh pipelines

To configure GCR first select Google Container Registry from the new registry drop down and then provide the following:

  • Registry Name - A unique name for this configuration
  • Key File - The contents of a JSON key file. See below for instructions

Add Google Container Registry

Generating a JSON key file

The JSON key file holds your credentials for a given Service Account. To generate your key file follow these instructions:

  1. Go to your Cloud Platform Console Credentials page.
  2. Select the project that you’re creating credentials for.
  3. To set up a new service account, click Create credentials and then select Service account key.
  4. Choose the service account to use for the key.
  5. Choose to download the service account’s public/private key as a JSON file.

Working with multiple projects

If you have more than one repositories/projects in Google cloud, you can connect multiple GCR registries and define one as the “primary” for the domain.

This means that every time Codefresh needs to pull an image it will use that integration. If you wish to use another project for pulling images, you can use the registry_context property as described in working with multiple registries.
