describe-repositories

Description

Describes image repositories in a registry.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-repositories is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: repositories

Synopsis

  describe-repositories
[--registry-id <value>]
[--repository-names <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--registry-id (string)

The AWS account ID associated with the registry that contains the repositories to be described. If you do not specify a registry, the default registry is assumed.

--repository-names (list)

A list of repositories to describe. If this parameter is omitted, then all repositories in a registry are described.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To describe the repositories in a registry

This example describes the repositories in the default registry for an account.

Command:

aws ecr describe-repositories

Output:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "registryId": "012345678910",
            "repositoryName": "ubuntu",
            "repositoryArn": "arn:aws:ecr:us-west-2:012345678910:repository/ubuntu"
        },
        {
            "registryId": "012345678910",
            "repositoryName": "test",
            "repositoryArn": "arn:aws:ecr:us-west-2:012345678910:repository/test"
        }
    ]
}

Output

repositories -> (list)

A list of repository objects corresponding to valid repositories.

(structure)

An object representing a repository.

repositoryArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the repository. The ARN contains the arn:aws:ecr namespace, followed by the region of the repository, AWS account ID of the repository owner, repository namespace, and repository name. For example, arn:aws:ecr:region:012345678910:repository/test .

registryId -> (string)

The AWS account ID associated with the registry that contains the repository.

repositoryName -> (string)

The name of the repository.

repositoryUri -> (string)

The URI for the repository. You can use this URI for container image push and pull operations.

createdAt -> (timestamp)

The date and time, in JavaScript date format, when the repository was created.

imageTagMutability -> (string)

The tag mutability setting for the repository.

imageScanningConfiguration -> (structure)

The image scanning configuration for a repository.

scanOnPush -> (boolean)

The setting that determines whether images are scanned after being pushed to a repository. If set to true , images will be scanned after being pushed. If this parameter is not specified, it will default to false and images will not be scanned unless a scan is manually started with the StartImageScan API.

encryptionConfiguration -> (structure)

The encryption configuration for the repository. This determines how the contents of your repository are encrypted at rest.

encryptionType -> (string)

The encryption type to use.

If you use the KMS encryption type, the contents of the repository will be encrypted using server-side encryption with customer master keys (CMKs) stored in AWS KMS. When you use AWS KMS to encrypt your data, you can either use the default AWS managed CMK for Amazon ECR, or specify your own CMK, which you already created. For more information, see Protecting Data Using Server-Side Encryption with CMKs Stored in AWS Key Management Service (SSE-KMS) in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Console Developer Guide. .

If you use the AES256 encryption type, Amazon ECR uses server-side encryption with Amazon S3-managed encryption keys which encrypts the images in the repository using an AES-256 encryption algorithm. For more information, see Protecting Data Using Server-Side Encryption with Amazon S3-Managed Encryption Keys (SSE-S3) in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Console Developer Guide. .

kmsKey -> (string)

If you use the KMS encryption type, specify the CMK to use for encryption. The alias, key ID, or full ARN of the CMK can be specified. The key must exist in the same Region as the repository. If no key is specified, the default AWS managed CMK for Amazon ECR will be used.

nextToken -> (string)

The nextToken value to include in a future DescribeRepositories request. When the results of a DescribeRepositories request exceed maxResults , this value can be used to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.
