get-authorization-token

Description

Retrieves an authorization token. An authorization token represents your IAM authentication credentials and can be used to access any Amazon ECR registry that your IAM principal has access to. The authorization token is valid for 12 hours.

The authorizationToken returned is a base64 encoded string that can be decoded and used in a docker login command to authenticate to a registry. The CLI offers an get-login-password command that simplifies the login process. For more information, see Registry authentication in the Amazon Elastic Container Registry User Guide .

Options

--registry-ids (list)

A list of Amazon Web Services account IDs that are associated with the registries for which to get AuthorizationData objects. If you do not specify a registry, the default registry is assumed.

(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.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To get an authorization token for your default registry

The following get-authorization-token example command gets an authorization token for your default registry.

aws ecr get-authorization-token

Output:

{
    "authorizationData": [
        {
            "authorizationToken": "QVdTOkN...",
            "expiresAt": 1448875853.241,
            "proxyEndpoint": "https://123456789012.dkr.ecr.us-west-2.amazonaws.com"
        }
    ]
}

Output

authorizationData -> (list)

A list of authorization token data objects that correspond to the registryIds values in the request.

(structure)

An object representing authorization data for an Amazon ECR registry.

authorizationToken -> (string)

A base64-encoded string that contains authorization data for the specified Amazon ECR registry. When the string is decoded, it is presented in the format user:password for private registry authentication using docker login .

expiresAt -> (timestamp)

The Unix time in seconds and milliseconds when the authorization token expires. Authorization tokens are valid for 12 hours.

proxyEndpoint -> (string)

The registry URL to use for this authorization token in a docker login command. The Amazon ECR registry URL format is https://aws_account_id.dkr.ecr.region.amazonaws.com . For example, https://012345678910.dkr.ecr.us-east-1.amazonaws.com ..
