Viewing public repository information - Amazon ECR Public
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Viewing public repository information

After you create a public repository, you can view details about it in the Amazon Web Services Management Console. For each image in the repository, you can view the image size, the URI for pulling the image, the SHA digest, the image tags, and the time when the image was last pushed. You can review the catalog data for the Amazon ECR Public Gallery. You can also see the repository permission policies that are associated with the repository.


Beginning with Docker version 1.9, the Docker client compresses image layers before pushing them to a V2 Docker registry. The output of the docker images command shows the uncompressed image size. Therefore, the image size that's returned might be larger than the image sizes that are shown in the Amazon Web Services Management Console.
