[ aws . ecr ]



Creates or updates the image manifest and tags associated with an image.

When an image is pushed and all new image layers have been uploaded, the PutImage API is called once to create or update the image manifest and the tags associated with the image.


This operation is used by the Amazon ECR proxy and is not generally used by customers for pulling and pushing images. In most cases, you should use the docker CLI to pull, tag, and push images.

--registry-id (string)

The Amazon Web Services account ID associated with the registry that contains the repository in which to put the image. If you do not specify a registry, the default registry is assumed.

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository in which to put the image.

--image-manifest (string)

The image manifest corresponding to the image to be uploaded.

--image-manifest-media-type (string)

The media type of the image manifest. If you push an image manifest that does not contain the mediaType field, you must specify the imageManifestMediaType in the request.

--image-tag (string)

The tag to associate with the image. This parameter is required for images that use the Docker Image Manifest V2 Schema 2 or Open Container Initiative (OCI) formats.

--image-digest (string)

The image digest of the image manifest corresponding to the image.

--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.



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 retag an image with its manifest

The following put-image example creates a new tag in the hello-world repository with an existing image manifest.

aws ecr put-image \
    --repository-name hello-world \
    --image-tag 2019.08 \
    --image-manifest file://hello-world.manifest.json

Contents of hello-world.manifest.json:
