Login to a container registry

Synopsis

buildah login [options] registry

Description

buildah login logs into a specified registry server with the correct username and password. buildah login reads in the username and password from STDIN. The username and password can also be set using the username and password flags. The path of the authentication file can be specified by the user by setting the authfile flag. The default path used is ${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json. If XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is not set, the default is /run/containers/$UID/auth.json.
