get-login-password

Description

To log in to an Amazon ECR registry

This command retrieves and displays an authentication token using the GetAuthorizationToken API that you can use to authenticate to an Amazon ECR registry. You can pass the authorization token to the login command of the container client of your preference, such as the Docker CLI. After you have authenticated to an Amazon ECR registry with this command, you can use the client to push and pull images from that registry as long as your IAM principal has access to do so until the token expires. The authorization token is valid for 12 hours.

This command is supported using the latest version of AWS CLI version 2 or in v1.17.10 or later of AWS CLI version 1. For information on updating to the latest AWS CLI version, see Installing the AWS CLI in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide.

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 retrieve a password to authenticate to a registry

The following get-login-password displays a password that you can use with a container client of your choice to authenticate to any Amazon ECR registry that your IAM principal has access to.

aws ecr get-login-password

Output:

<password>

To use with the Docker CLI, pipe the output of the get-login-password command to the docker login command. When retrieving the password, ensure that you specify the same Region that your Amazon ECR registry exists in.

aws ecr get-login-password \
    --region <region> \
| docker login \
    --username AWS \
    --password-stdin <aws_account_id>.dkr.ecr.<region>.amazonaws.com
