Permission levels in DTR

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Docker Trusted Registry allows you to define fine-grain permissions over image repositories.

Administrator users

Users are shared across UCP and DTR. When you create a new user in Docker Universal Control Plane, that user becomes available in DTR and vice versa. When you create an administrator user in DTR, the user has permissions to:

  • Manage users across UCP and DTR,
  • Manage DTR repositories and settings,
  • Manage UCP resources and settings.

Team permission levels

Teams allow you to define the permissions a set of user has for a set of repositories. Three permission levels are available:

Repository operation read read-write admin
View/ browse x x x
Pull x x x
Push   x x
Start a scan   x x
Delete tags   x x
Edit description     x
Set public or private     x
Manage user access     x
Delete repository     x

Team permissions are additive. When a user is a member of multiple teams, they have the highest permission level defined by those teams.

Overall permissions

Here’s an overview of the permission levels available in DTR:

  • Anonymous users: Can search and pull public repositories.
  • Users: Can search and pull public repos, and create and manage their own repositories.
  • Team member: Everything a user can do, plus the permissions granted by the teams the user is member of.
  • Team admin: Everything a team member can do, and can also add members to the team.
  • Organization admin: Everything a team admin can do, can create new teams, and add members to the organization.
  • Admin: Can manage anything across UCP and DTR.
