How do I link private GitHub Packages Registry to my application?


#1

What do I need to enter on the Link external registry dialog in order to be able to include private images hosted in Github registry?


#2

Right now this is only supported for KOTS apps.

  1. Navigate to https://github.com/settings/tokens and generate a new token.

    • make sure that read:packages permission is checked

  2. Once the toke is generated, save the value. There will be no way to retrieve it later.

  3. Enter then following

    • Endpoint: docker.pkg.github.com
    • Username: the name of the user that owns the token
    • Password: the value of the token created in the previous step
  4. Click the Link Registry button.

There is a known issue with docker.pkg.github.com that prevents Replicated server from validating the specified credentials. If username or the token are entered incorrectly, authentication errors will be returned to the client when trying to pull images.
