Configure Connectors to Import and Scan Images

Required User Role: Administrator

Connectors act as links to local or third-party registries. You can use connectors to access these registries and then import image data from them to Container Security.

To import and analyze container images, you must configure a connector to a registry or, in certain cases, to the registry's own connector.

After you configure your connectors, you can view and manage your connectors from the Settings page in For more information about connectors, see Connectors in the Vulnerability Management User Guide.

Note: Container Security does not support connector configurations for Azure Container Registries (ACR). To import images from an ACR registry, use the Container Security Scanner. Container Security Connectors Container Security supports image imports via the following connectors.
