Updating & Deleting Images

Follow this guide to update basic information about your image, or to delete them.

Everything related to updating/deleting images is on the "Settings" tab of the image

  1. Click Images in the nav menu on the left hand side.
  2. Select the image you want to modify from the list.
  3. Click the Settings tab underneath the image name at the top.

Updating an Image

You can only change the name of an image once it has been created. If you need to get the latest copy of an image, reimport it instead.

From the settings tab, locate the "General" form on the left hand side. Change the name to whatever you'd like, then click Update Image.

Deleting an Image

If you've decided you no longer need an image and wish to delete it, you will first need to delete the containers that are using it. To check if any containers are using the image, select the Dashboard tab underneath the image name at the top. On the right hand side is a panel detailing all containers currently using this image.

Deleting an image cannot be undone. The only option is to reimport the image.

Deleting an Image

Once the containers using the image have been removed, go back to the Settings tab of the image you wish to delete, and locate the form on the right-hand side. Enter the name of the image into the box, and click Delete Image.
