Uploading a Private Image from the Internet

This section uses the nginx:1.10 image as an example to describe how to upload a private image from the Internet to the CCE image repository. Images will be displayed in the image repository after being uploaded.


If the network becomes unavailable or the image repository is restarted unexpectedly when you upload an image from a Docker client, the Docker client will not continue to send the image upload request to the image repository and will fail to respond. In this case, you can restart the Docker daemon.


  • A VM is available, on which Docker 1.11.2, 1.12.0, 1.12.1, or 1.12.6 is installed.
  • The Docker client has been configured. For details, see section Connecting to the Private Container Registry.
  • An image has been prepared.


  1. Log in to the VM running Docker as the root user.
  2. Log in to the node, and run the following command to query the Docker version:

    docker version

    Information similar to the following is displayed.

    Version: 1.11.2

    In the preceding information, Version indicates the version number of the Docker.

  3. Connect to CCE.

    1. Click the name of the image repository to be uploaded to go to the details page.
    2. On the Pull/Push Guide tab page, click Generate the Docker login command, as shown in Figure 1.
      Figure 1 Generating a Docker login command
    3. In the displayed Docker login command, click to copy the command.

  4. Log in to the server where Docker is installed. Then, run the Docker login command copied in the previous step.

    After you successfully log in to the Docker client, "login succeeded" is displayed.

  5. Run the following command to tag the nginx:1.10 image:

    docker tag imagename:tag {Public image address}:tag

    Example command:

    docker tag nginx:1.10 {Public image address}:1.10

    The Public image address is the Public image address displayed in Step 1. Obtain the image repository address on the Pull/Push Guide tab page.

  6. Run the following command to push the image to the image repository:

    docker push {Public image address}:1.10

    If the image has been successfully pushed, the following information is displayed:

    6d6b9812c8ae: Pushed 
    695da0025de6: Pushed 
    fe4c16cbf7a4: Pushed 
    1.10: digest: sha256:eb7e3bbd8e3040efa71d9c2cacfa12a8e39c6b2ccd15eac12bdc49e0b66cee63 size: 948

    On the CCE console, refresh the Image Repository > imagename page of the image repository. The uploaded image is displayed in the image list.
