Static Methods

classmethod from_asset(directory, *, build_args=None, file=None, repository_name=None, target=None, extra_hash=None, exclude=None, follow=None)

Reference an image that’s constructed directly from sources on disk.

If you already have a DockerImageAsset instance, you can use the ContainerImage.fromDockerImageAsset method instead.

  • directory (str) – The directory containing the Dockerfile.

  • build_args (Optional[Mapping[str, str]]) – Build args to pass to the docker build command. Since Docker build arguments are resolved before deployment, keys and values cannot refer to unresolved tokens (such as lambda.functionArn or queue.queueUrl). Default: - no build args are passed

  • file (Optional[str]) – Path to the Dockerfile (relative to the directory). Default: ‘Dockerfile’

  • repository_name (Optional[str]) – ECR repository name. Specify this property if you need to statically address the image, e.g. from a Kubernetes Pod. Note, this is only the repository name, without the registry and the tag parts. Default: - the default ECR repository for CDK assets

  • target (Optional[str]) – Docker target to build to. Default: - no target

  • extra_hash (Optional[str]) – Extra information to encode into the fingerprint (e.g. build instructions and other inputs). Default: - hash is only based on source content

  • exclude (Optional[List[str]]) – Glob patterns to exclude from the copy. Default: nothing is excluded

  • follow (Optional[FollowMode]) – A strategy for how to handle symlinks. Default: Never

Return type


classmethod from_docker_image_asset(asset)

asset (DockerImageAsset) – The DockerImageAsset to use for this container definition.

Return type


classmethod from_ecr_repository(repository, tag=None)

Reference an image in an ECR repository.

Return type


classmethod from_registry(name, *, credentials=None)

Reference an image on DockerHub or another online registry.

  • name (str) –

  • credentials (Optional[ISecret]) – The secret to expose to the container that contains the credentials for the image repository. The supported value is the full ARN of an AWS Secrets Manager secret.
