Description Roman Bobek 2017-07-26 06:17:45 UTC
Description of problem:
Satellite 6 is not able to sync private registry hosted on Docker Hub.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a registry on https://hub.docker.com
2. Push an image in the registry and make the registry private
3. Create the Docker type repository in the Satellite pointing to the private registry
4. Try to sync the repository

Actual results:
Sync fails with following error:
Could not fetch repository username/registry from registry https://registry.hub.docker.com - Unauthorized or Not Found

Expected results:
Registry is synced.

Additional info:
- Registry entry in Containers > Registries is created and credentials are correct.
- If the registry is not set as Private, sync is working without any issues
- Pulling from the private registry works

Comment 1 Michael Hrivnak 2017-07-26 07:05:12 UTC
Support for authentication to a registry was added to Pulp 2.10.0 here:


Partha, can you confirm:

1) Does sat 6.2 include this feature? The Pulp change would need to have been backported. Katello would of course need to facilitate setting the username and password.

2) Has this been tested against docker hub? Or private registries? Or anything else?

Connecting redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/16481 from this bug

Comment 5 Tom McKay 2017-08-29 12:26:57 UTC
Changes upstream for quite some time.

Comment 8 Bruno Rocha 2018-05-21 15:54:33 UTC
Verified both upstream and downstream 6.4 snap 3

Comment 9 Bruno Rocha 2018-05-21 16:01:43 UTC
Removed the needinfo as BZ is verified
