If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit).

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
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 - 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?
