Grant Rok Registry Access to Private Docker Registry

In this section we will guide you through granting Rok Registry access to Arrikto’s GCP Container Registry.

The Arrikto-provided dockerconfig.json file contains a token with pull access to the arrikto-deploy GCP Container Registry. In order to pull container images for Rok Registry and its components, you need to copy this file in certain locations under the kustomization tree of the GitOps repository.

Choose one of the following options in order to grant Rok Registry access to arrikto-deploy:

Option 2: Grant Rok Registry Access to Private Docker Registry Manually

In this section you will grant Rok Registry access to Arrikto’s GCP private container registry manually.

Procedure

  1. Go to your GitOps repository, inside your rok-tools management environment:

    root@rok-tools:~# cd ~/ops/deployments
    
  2. Copy the dockerconfig.json from /root/dockerconfig.json to the following locations:

    root@rok-tools:~/ops/deployments# cp /root/dockerconfig.json rok/rok-registry-cluster/overlays/deploy/secrets/dockerconfig.json
    root@rok-tools:~/ops/deployments# cp /root/dockerconfig.json rok/rok-operator/overlays/registry/deploy/secrets/dockerconfig.json
    
  3. Stage changes for commit:

    root@rok-tools:~/ops/deployments# git add \
    >     rok/rok-registry-cluster/overlays/deploy/secrets/dockerconfig.json \
    >     rok/rok-operator/overlays/registry/deploy/secrets/dockerconfig.json
    
  4. Commit your changes:

    root@rok-tools:~/ops/deployments# git commit -am "Add credentials for Arrikto's private registry"
    

Note

Kustomize will read these files, auto-generate Secrets, and pass them to individual Rok Registry components, so that they can pull from the arrikto-deploy container registry on your behalf.
