skopeo-logout - Man Page

Logout of a container registry.


skopeo logout [options] registry


skopeo logout logs out of a specified registry server by deleting the cached credentials stored in the auth.json file. The path of the authentication file can be overridden by the user by setting the authfile flag. The default path used is ${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json. All the cached credentials can be removed by setting the all flag.


See also skopeo(1) for options placed before the subcommand name.

Path of the authentication file. Default is ${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json

Note: You can also override the default path of the authentication file by setting the REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE environment variable. export REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE=path

Instead of updating the default credentials file, update the one at path, and use a Docker-compatible format.
