Using a Docker Image to Mirror Your Production Services

Using a Docker image to mirror your production services in Tugboat works the same as pulling an image for any other Service in Tugboat. Follow the steps to set up Services in Tugboat, and specify your production image.

As you’ll probably be pulling from a private repository, you may need to first:

  1. Authenticate with a Docker Registry from Tugboat’s Repository Settings.
  2. Take a look at using third-party Docker images with Tugboat for info about caveats, as well as links to scripts you could use to optimize your own image for Tugboat.
  3. If you’re pulling from a private Docker repository that isn’t on Docker Hub, you’ll need to follow the process in: Bring your own Docker image from another registry.
