PutReplicationConfiguration - Amazon Elastic Container Registry


Creates or updates the replication configuration for a registry. The existing replication configuration for a repository can be retrieved with the DescribeRegistry API action. The first time the PutReplicationConfiguration API is called, a service-linked IAM role is created in your account for the replication process. For more information, see Using Service-Linked Roles for Amazon ECR in the Amazon Elastic Container Registry User Guide.


When configuring cross-account replication, the destination account must grant the source account permission to replicate. This permission is controlled using a registry permissions policy. For more information, see PutRegistryPolicy.
