Create Azure Container Registry

In the Market place, head to the "Containers" Option, select the "Container Registry"

Then we need to setup our new registry.

Once you create the new registry we wait for Azure to create it and tell us it's ready.

Next we need to get access to our new registry so we can log in and load our images. In the registry menu, select "Access Keys" - I set the admin user to enable so I can use a username / password to access my container registry.

Azure Container Registry Access Keys

Once you have these we need to log into it from docker, by default docker will log into docker hub.

docker login

This will then prompt for the username / password from the Azure container registry Access keys.

That's it your now logged into your own Container registry.

To push an image to your own registry you need to tag the image as your registry.

docker tag demowebapp
docker push
