Image Sources Overview

An image source is a way to define where Cycle can look to find the files necessary to create and build your container images.

Create Sources

By creating a source and giving Cycle access to a specific image, developers can easily reimage containers without constantly managing credentials.

There are currently 3 types of image sources supported.

  1. Docker Hub - create an image source from an existing image repo on Docker Hub.
  2. Docker Registry - create an image source from an exisitng image repo on a private Docker registry, with support for other registry types coming very soon!
  3. Docker File - create an image source from a repositiory hosted on any git solution (private or public) by adding a Dockerfile to your repo and telling Cycle where its located.

Managing Sources

Easily manage sources by clicking on the Images tab in the main naviation and then clicking on any individual source. From here you can choose the settings tab from the horizontal navigation.

Here you can make updates to the name, description, and repo data - including the repo url and auth type.

If you choose to delete a source you will not be able to recover it.
