Get-login deprecated

FYI, peeps. The example given on page 42:

$(aws ecr get-login --no-include-email)

is deprecated (actually, disabled) as of Docker 17.xx. I ended up using this to login:

docker login -u AWS -p $(aws ecr get-login-password --profile default) repo_name

Hi @faberfedor
you run the commands outside of the temporary working environment we provide, right?

I can also find the following example in the docs:

aws ecr get-login-password \
| docker login \
    --username AWS \
    --password-stdin <aws_account_id>.dkr.ecr.<region>.amazonaws.com

Not sure if there are advantages over one of the two solutions?

btw: can you post the error message? I don’t see any difference in your command and the command that is executed when running aws ecr get-login --no-include-email

Sure thing:

[faber@Fabers-MacBook-Air dashboard-apis (rapid_docker)] 2020-11-11 11:43:40$ aws ecr get-login --no-include-email

To see help text, you can run:

  aws help
  aws <command> help
  aws <command> <subcommand> help

Googling led me to this page: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/ecr/get-login.html

Yes, I am running it locally in my Mac environment.

The docs mention that using get-login-password will make your password visible to other users on your machine and the get-authorization-token should be used instead. I’ll be looking into that later today.

From the get-authorization-token docs:

The authorizationToken returned is a base64 encoded string that can be decoded and used in a docker login command to authenticate to a registry. The AWS CLI offers an get-login-password command that simplifies the login process

Bottom line is:

  1. The deprecation is not related to Docker, it is related to the AWS CLI
  2. We should switch from $(aws ecr get-login --no-include-email) to aws ecr get-login-password | docker login --username AWS --password-stdin aws_account_id.dkr.ecr.region.amazonaws.com
