podman-manifest-add - Man Page

Add an image to a manifest list or image index

Synopsis

podman manifest add [options] listnameorindexname [transport]:imagename

Description

Adds the specified image to the specified manifest list or image index.

Return Value

The list image's ID.

Options

--all

If the image which should be added to the list or index is itself a list or index, add all of the contents to the local list.  By default, only one image from such a list or index will be added to the list or index.  Combining --all with any of the other options described below is NOT recommended.

--annotation=annotation=value

Set an annotation on the entry for the image.

--arch

Override the architecture which the list or index records as a requirement for the image.  If imageName refers to a manifest list or image index, the architecture information will be retrieved from it.  Otherwise, it will be retrieved from the image's configuration information.

--authfile=path

Path of the authentication file. Default is ${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json, which is set using podman login. If the authorization state is not found there, $HOME/.docker/config.json is checked, which is set using docker login.

Note: There is also the option to override the default path of the authentication file by setting the REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE environment variable. This can be done with export REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE=path.

--cert-dir=path

Use certificates at path (*.crt, *.cert, *.key) to connect to the registry. (Default: /etc/containers/certs.d) Please refer to containers-certs.d(5) for details. (This option is not available with the remote Podman client, including Mac and Windows (excluding WSL2) machines)

--creds=[username[:password]]

The [username[:password]] to use to authenticate with the registry, if required. If one or both values are not supplied, a command line prompt will appear and the value can be entered. The password is entered without echo.

--features

Specify the features list which the list or index records as requirements for the image.  This option is rarely used.

--os

Override the OS which the list or index records as a requirement for the image. If imagename refers to a manifest list or image index, the OS information will be retrieved from it.  Otherwise, it will be retrieved from the image's configuration information.

--os-version

Specify the OS version which the list or index records as a requirement for the image.  This option is rarely used.

--tls-verify

Require HTTPS and verify certificates when contacting registries (default: true). If explicitly set to true, TLS verification will be used. If set to false, TLS verification will not be used. If not specified, TLS verification will be used unless the target registry is listed as an insecure registry in containers-registries.conf(5)

--variant

Specify the variant which the list or index records for the image.  This option is typically used to distinguish between multiple entries which share the same architecture value, but which expect different versions of its instruction set.

Transport

Multiple transports are supported:

docker://docker-reference (default)
 An image in a registry implementing the "Docker Registry HTTP API V2". By default, uses the authorization state in $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/containers/auth.json, which is set using (podman login). If the authorization state is not found there, $HOME/.docker/config.json is checked, which is set using (docker login).

$ podman manifest add mylist:v1.11 docker://quay.io/username/myimage

containers-storage:oci-reference
 An image in oci-reference format stored in the local container storage. oci-reference must contain a tag.

$ podman manifest add mylist:v1.11 containers-storage:quay.io/username/myimage

dir:path
 An existing local directory path storing the manifest, layer tarballs, and signatures as individual files. This
 is a non-standardized format, primarily useful for debugging or noninvasive container inspection.

$ podman manifest add dir:/tmp/myimage

docker-archive:path[:docker-reference]
 An image is stored in the docker save formatted file.  docker-reference is only used when creating such a
 file, and it must not contain a digest.

$ podman manifest add docker-archive:/tmp/myimage

docker-daemon:docker-reference
 An image in docker-reference format stored in the docker daemon internal storage. The docker-reference can also be an image ID (docker-daemon:algo:digest).

$ sudo podman manifest add docker-daemon:docker.io/library/myimage:33

oci-archive:path:tag
 An image tag in a directory compliant with "Open Container Image Layout Specification" at path.

$ podman manifest add oci-archive:/tmp/myimage

Example

podman manifest add mylist:v1.11 docker://fedora

71c201d10fffdcac52968a000d85a0a016ca1c7d5473948000d3131c1773d965
podman manifest add --arch arm64 --variant v8 mylist:v1.11 docker://71c201d10fffdcac52968a000d85a0a016ca1c7d5473948000d3131c1773d965
