Log in to a container registry

Use this GitHub Action to log in to a private container registry such as Azure Container registry. Once login is done, the next set of actions in the workflow can perform tasks such as building, tagging and pushing containers.

- uses: azure/docker-login@v1
    login-server: '<login server>' # default:
    username: '<username>'
    password: '<password>'

Refer to the action metadata file for details about all the inputs: action.yml

You can build and push container registry by using the following example

- uses: azure/docker-login@v1
    username: ${{ secrets.REGISTRY_USERNAME }}
    password: ${{ secrets.REGISTRY_PASSWORD }}

- run: |
    docker build . -t${{ github.sha }}
    docker push${{ github.sha }}


Get the username and password of your container registry and create secrets for them. For Azure Container registry refer to admin account document for username and password.

Now add the username and password as a secret in the GitHub repository.
