doctl registry docker-config [flags]




This command outputs a JSON-formatted Docker configuration that can be used to configure a Docker client to authenticate with your private container registry. This configuration is useful for configuring third-party tools that need access to your registry. For configuring your local Docker client use “doctl registry login” instead, as it will preserve the configuration of any other registries you have authenticated to.

By default this command generates read-only credentials. Use the –read-write flag to generate credentials that can push. The configuration produced by this command contains a DigitalOcean API token that can be used to access your account, so be sure to keep it secret.


--expiry-secondsThe length of time the registry credentials will be valid for in seconds. By default, the credentials do not expire.
Default: 0
