# Docker Registry

All images generated in the build process are stored in our Docker Registry. Access to the registry is limited only for the Storefront Cloud users. Registry is available under address registry.storefrontcloud.io.

By default images are tagged by git hash, ex: registry.storefrontcloud.io/demo-storefrontcloud-io/vue-storefront:dc7b0af2. Only for git tags images are tagged by git tag registry.storefrontcloud.io/demo-storefrontcloud-io/vue-storefront:1.2.3. It is managed by CI and configuration is in .gitlab-ci.yml file, default configuration is like below.

    - echo "{\"auths\":{\"$REGISTRY_URL\":{\"username\":\"$REGISTRY_USER\",\"password\":\"$REGISTRY_PASSWORD\"}}}" > /kaniko/.docker/config.json
    - TAG=${CI_COMMIT_SHA:0:8}
    - if [ -n "$CI_COMMIT_TAG" ]; then TAG=$CI_COMMIT_TAG; fi
    - /kaniko/executor --context $CI_PROJECT_DIR --dockerfile $CI_PROJECT_DIR/dev/docker/Dockerfile --destination $REGISTRY_IMAGE:$TAG

# Access Data

Login and password are stored as GitLab Variables in project configuration as variable REGISTRY_USER and REGISTRY_PASSWORD.


# Images Live Time

All images with a tag other than compatible with Semantic Versioning are removed after 30 days.

How does it work? Look at the examples below.

tag live time
dc7b0af2 30 days 30 days
some_name 30 days
1.3.4-dev 30 days
1.2.4 forever
3.4.2 forever

Important note: For the production environment only tags compatible with Semantic Versioning should be used.
