I’m new to CircleCI and am wondering if anyone has found an elegant solution to this problem:
I’m building a docker image and pushing to a private repo on docker hub, which means I need to log in to docker.
I’ve tried the docker login syntax with -u and -p (ie docker login -u username -p password) and docker rejects my login. https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/login/#extended-description describes why this is the case and provides an example of standard in usage with:
cat ~/my_password.txt | docker login --username foo --password-stdin
In CircleCI context, this to me means that I need to save my docker password to a file, in my repo. Which I really don’t want to do.
My question then is how have people worked around this, has anyone seen a nice solution?
I’ve had a think about using circle contexts aka environment variables, but this would still not be piping in from std in so am a bit confused as to the best way of doing this.
I’d love any advice you more experience circleci people have
I’m using Node 7.10.0 to package an Ionic Web App, and Java 8 for a spring boot API
Docker on circle is giving me a message that my password is invalid (it’s not) because it wants the input via std in as per docs linked above
The specific step is
- run: name: Docker Login command: 'docker login -u MYUSERNAME -p MYPASSWORD'
