Push a Container Image to Container Security

Required User Role: Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

Use Docker commands to download the image from the external registry where it resides and import it to Container Security.

Before you begin:

To push container image to Container Security:

  1. Use the docker pull command to download the image from an external registry.

    docker pull alpine:latest

  2. Use the docker tag command to add the tag.

    docker tag alpine:latest

    Note: The tag prompts Docker to push the image to Container Security. If you do not add the tag, Docker automatically pushes the image to the Docker central repository.

  3. Use the docker push command to push the tagged image to Container Security.

    docker push

    Docker pushes the image to Container Security. Container Security scans the images for vulnerabilities.
