How to connect your namespace to the Docker CLI

Reviewed on 27 November 2023Published on 25 February 2019

Docker is a tool which makes it easy to manage container images. You can use Docker to push and pull images to and from your Scaleway Container Registry. We show you how to set up Docker on your local computer to connect to your Container Registry.

Security & Identity (IAM)

To perform certain actions described below, you must either be the Owner of the Organization in which the actions will be performed or an IAM user with the necessary permissions.

  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have created a Container Registry namespace
  • You have generated your API key
  • You have installed Docker on your local computer
  1. Click Container Registry in the Containers section of the Scaleway console side menu. The Container Registry namespaces dashboard displays.

  2. Click «See more Icon», then Push instructions next to the namespace you want to push to. A pop-up displays.

  3. Copy the push instructions. Then click X to close the pop-up.

  4. Open a terminal window on your local computer. Then log into the namespace by running the following command from the terminal:

    docker login -u nologin -p [SCW_SECRET_KEY]

    Replace [SCW_SECRET_KEY] with your API secret key and mynamespace with the name of your namespace.

    Once logged in, a confirmation is displayed:

    Login Succeeded

You are now logged in and ready to push and pull images to and from your Container Registry with Docker.
