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).

Private registry settings

Amazon ECR uses private registry settings to configure features at the registry level. The private registry settings are configured separately for each Region. You can use private registry settings to configure the following features.

  • Registry permissions—A registry permissions policy provides control over the replication and pull through cache permissions. For more information, see Private registry permissions.

  • Pull through cache rules—A pull through cache rule is used to cache images from an upstream registry in your Amazon ECR private registry. For more information, see Using pull through cache rules.

  • Replication configuration—The replication configuration is used to control whether your repositories are copied across Amazon Regions or accounts. For more information, see Private image replication

  • Repository creation templates—A repository creation template is used to define the standard settings to apply when new repositories are created by Amazon ECR on your behalf. For example, repositories created by a pull through cache action. For more information, see Manage your repository creation templates.

  • Scanning configuration—By default, your registry is enabled for basic scanning. You may enable enhanced scanning which provides an automated, continuous scanning mode that scans for both operating system and programming language package vulnerabilities. For more information, see Image scanning.
