apptainer remote

Manage apptainer remote endpoints, keyservers and OCI/Docker registry credentials

Synopsis

The ‘remote’ command allows you to manage Apptainer remote endpoints, standalone keyservers and OCI/Docker registry credentials through its subcommands.

A ‘remote endpoint’ is a group of services that is compatible with the container library API. The remote endpoint is a single address, e.g. ‘cloud.example.com’ through which library and/or keystore services will be automatically discovered.

To configure a remote endpoint you must ‘remote add’ it. You can ‘remote login’ if you will be performing actions needing authentication. Switch between configured remote endpoints with the ‘remote use’ command. The active remote endpoint will be used for key operations, and ‘library://’ pull and push. You can also ‘remote logout’ from and ‘remote remove’ an endpoint that is no longer required.

To configure credentials for OCI registries that should be used when pulling or pushing from/to ‘docker://’’ or ‘oras://’ URIs, use the ‘remote login’ command only. You do not have to ‘remote add’ OCI registries. To remove credentials ‘remote logout’ with the same URI. You do not need to ‘remote remove’ OCI credentials.

The remote configuration is stored in $HOME/.apptainer/remotes.yaml by default.

Examples

All group commands have their own help output:

  $ apptainer help remote list
  $ apptainer remote list

Options

-c, --config string   path to the file holding remote endpoint configurations (default "/home/runner/.apptainer/remote.yaml")
-h, --help            help for remote
