Viewing repository information - Amazon ECR

Viewing repository information

After you created a repository, you can view its information in the AWS Management Console:

  • Which images are stored in a repository

  • Whether an image is tagged

  • The tags for the image

  • The SHA digest for the images

  • The size of the images in MB

  • When the image was pushed to the repository


Starting with Docker version 1.9, the Docker client compresses image layers before pushing them to a V2 Docker registry. The output of the docker images command shows the uncompressed image size. Therefore, keep in mind that Docker might return a larger image than the image shown in the AWS Management Console.
