Building Web Frontend/UI for Local Docker Registry using Portus

Portus is an authorization server and a user interface for the next generation of the Docker registry. Portus targets version 2 of the Docker Registry API. The minimum required version of Registry is 2.1, which is the first version supporting soft deletes of blobs.

If you are looking out for Web UI for your private Docker Registry, I would recommend to test-drive a tool called “Portus” powered by SUSE Team. Portus provides a useful and powerful UI on top of your registry. It is an open source authorization service and a user interface for the next generation of the Docker registry. Portus targets version 2 of the Docker Registry API.

Provide Docker Registry Details

Once you login to Portus, you will need to provide Docker Registry details:

- Name
- <Your Host IP or Hostname>: 2000

Please remember that Portus is designed to handle only a single private Registry.

First, create user who would be point of contact for each of these teams who will be pushing their Docker Image. Then, create team names accordingly.
