Section Number and Name:

Architecture > Image Registry > Third Party Registries > Authentication

Describe the issue:

The section describes integration with 3rd party registries, and it seems to imply that ImageStreams work with 3rd party registries (with the caveat of manual import-image) even if they require authentication.

At this time, this is not the case though, see Bug 1271328: ImageStreams do not work with external registries that require authentication.

Suggestions for improvement:

In the Authentication section, explain that ImageStreams do not work. It can be possible to pull images from a registry by referencing them directly (not via an ImageStream) and providing credentials via a secret; this might also be worth mentioning as an alternative (with further reduced functionality) but I have not confirmed how it works.

Additional information:

The section would change again once changes for bug 1271328 are implemented.
