API for Amazon EC2 Container Registry

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_ECR

The "TLA" is a Three Letter Abbreviation that appears in ABAP class names, data dictionary objects and other ABAP objects throughout the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP. The TLA for Amazon EC2 Container Registry is ECR. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.


To install the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP, import the Core transport, along with the transport for the ECR module and other API modules you are interested in. A few modules are included in the Core transport itself. For more information, see the Developer Guide guide.

About The Service

Amazon Elastic Container Registry

Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) is a managed container image registry service. Customers can use the familiar Docker CLI, or their preferred client, to push, pull, and manage images. Amazon ECR provides a secure, scalable, and reliable registry for your Docker or Open Container Initiative (OCI) images. Amazon ECR supports private repositories with resource-based permissions using IAM so that specific users or Amazon EC2 instances can access repositories and images.

Amazon ECR has service endpoints in each supported Region. For more information, see Amazon ECR endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Amazon EC2 Container Registry, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_ECR_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_ecr)       = /aws1/cl_ecr_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_ecr is an instance of /AWS1/IF_ECR, and all of the operations in the Amazon EC2 Container Registry service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_ECR.

API Operations

For an overview of ABAP method calls corresponding to API operations in Amazon EC2 Container Registry, see the Operation List.

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_ECR_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_ECR.


Optional arguments:







/AWS1/IF_ECR represents the ABAP client for the ECR service, representing each operation as a method call. For more information see the API Page page.

Configuring Programmatically

DATA(lo_config) = DATA(go_ecr)->get_config( ).

lo_config is a variable of type /AWS1/CL_ECR_CONFIG. See the documentation for /AWS1/CL_ECR_CONFIG for details on the settings that can be configured.


Waiters for Implementation can be accessed via get_waiter() method followed by the waiter method to be called.

Details about the waiter methods available for service Implementation can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_ECR_WAITER.


Paginators for Amazon EC2 Container Registry can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_ECR_PAGINATOR. The operation method that is being paginated is called using the paginator object, which accepts any necessary parameters to provide to the underlying API operation. This returns an iterator object which can be used to iterate over paginated results using has_next() and get_next() methods.

Details about the paginator methods available for service Amazon EC2 Container Registry can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_ECR_PAGINATOR.
