Accessing Repositories

You can browse Docker repositories in the user interface and inspect the components and assets and their details as documented in Browsing Repositories and Repository Groups.

When using the docker command line client, or any other tools using the repository manager indirectly, the common structure for commands can be:

docker <command> <nexus-hostname>:<https-repository-port>/<namespace>/<image>:<tag>
docker search <nexus-hostname>:<https-repository-port>/<search-term>

with

command

a docker command such as push or pull

nexus-hostname

the IP number or hostname of your repository manager

https-repository-port

https port which ultimately directs to the NXRM docker registry https port in the repository connector config, or that of a reverse proxy https connector which proxies the docker registry plain http port

namespace

the optional namespace of the specific image reflecting the owner, if left out this will silently default to /library and utilize Docker Hub

image

the name of the Docker image

tag

the optional tag of the image, defaulting to latest when omitted

search-term

the search term or name of the image to search for

The most important aspects are to know and use the correct hostname for the repository manager and the port for the desired repository or repository group.
