  1. ACR- Auto Purge

    As registries are filled with automated image builds, they wind up filling with layers that never get used. Auto-purge will track image usage and move unused layers to a recycle bin, allowing subsequent purging. The feature will be configured and managed, with reasonable defaults, assuring you'll never lose anything you really wanted to keep.

  4. Expose ACR Audit logs to enduser

    Please expose ACR Audit logs to endusers so that they can see a trail of who downloaded/ pushed images to a registry.

  5. Make Service Principals Easier To Configure for Headless Scenarios

    az acr login enables individual identity when working locally. However, headless scenarios like Continuous Build and Deployment solutions need authentication, that isn't tied to a person. Azure Active Directory provides Service Principals for just this scenario. However, Service Principals are difficult to configure and manage. ACR would make it easier to configure and manage service principals.

    Based on all the great feedback, we’re adding token based authentication to the repo-based permissions capability. Customers can configure time based tokens, for access to specific repos, with RBAC.
    We don’t have an ETA yet, but we expect to be in preview by this summer.

  6. Support repository description fields like Docker Hub

    Docker hub supports "short description" and markdown in the "full description" filed. We need the same for ACR, so one can share/publish registries for one's customers to consume.

    We made some progress here with some meta-data attributes to store the readme contents. And, some portal work to display it.
    Unfortunately, this got prioritized as we had more pressing/blocking work. We love this polish, and are working with the OCI Image and Distribution specs to define common APIs that all OCI Distribtuion implementations would support. This would enable the community to build tools around this scenario, and not limit to just us.
    That said, we still want to enable this scenario, just had to move it back to the backlog.
    For more info on how we prioritize:

    Apologies,

  7. Provide Usage Telemetry of Image Usage within the Azure Portal

    Which images are being pulled the most. What are the image sizes. Who's pulling images, and where are they deployed?

  9. Private Helm repository has no interface in portal

    While using ACR for our private helm repository I realized there is no interface in the portal for working with/ viewing helm charts. It would be nice if I could at least see the results of `helm search {acrname}` in the portal somehow.

  10. Ability to assign image labels/tags after the image is built

    Looking for for a API to do this versus a GUI.
    Need the ability to assign a additional image label/tag to it after the image is built and already in the ACR.

    For example, when our team finishes and certifies something like PI3, would like to label all the image versions that were tested as label/tag PI3.

  11. Add Powershell Management alongside Azure CLI

    Well, the subject pretty much sums it up. Having the ability to manage repositories and images with PowerShell would be very useful. To be honest, the only reason I have the Azure CLI installed is for ACR operations.

  12. Multi-Arch Tooling Support

    Building multi-arch images is typically associated with a few set of images that framework vendors must maintain, such as dotnetcore which supports both Linux and Windows. However, as IoT expands, the average developer will need to build multi-arch images to deal with the vast number of architectures supported by devices. ACR will support the automated building and maintaining of multi-arch manifests.

  13. Multi Select deletion of images.

    We run CI/CD via Drone.io, which pushes an image tagged by branch name and build number on every 'green'/successful commit.

    Currently, in order to delete the images that accumulate over time, I have to manually. delete. every. single. one.

    It would be nice to be able to select a whole lot and delete at once.
    :D

  14. Show Image Labels in Portal

    Azure Devops automatically labels an image with useful information such as Build Number and Source Branch.

    It would be great if you could see that information in the Azure Portal when viewing a particular image.

  15. helm

    The helm repo is a great idea but is not working as intended.
    After adding a the repo to helm (az acr helm repo add) and executing helm search <repo>

    this is the result:

    No results found

    If I execute "az acr helm list" I can see the helm chart. Also in the portal there is no visual of the charts.

  16. Show Dockerfile LABELs in ACR

    Was asked to elevate this idea here from https://github.com/Azure/acr/issues/247

    Put simply, it would be really nice if the ACR showed the LABEL data that was set in the Dockerfiles.

  17. Support tar import/export feature like docker save/load

    It is helpful if ACR supports import/export image as tar package like "docker save" and "docker load" command. We can easily backup, move, or archive image as offline.

    Especially, for Azure IoT Edge, archiving actual image as offline is important to ensure edge module image versioning.

  18. Per-user Access tokens for the Azure Container Registry

    We need the ability to control the access to the Azure Container Registry on 'per user' basis. This will allow us to revoke or give different access privileges to our users. The current option to create a Service Principal for each different user is not working for us, cause this should be done on a code level and giving create-service-principal privileges to the application is a security concern for our IT department.
    Our need is well covered with the SAS tokens for the Azure Blob Storage or Queues, but that feature is not existing for the ACR.

  19. Retention period for images

    Retention period for images- will be a good idea.
    For example, images older than X days drop, but store at least 1 image.
    It's not about purging or usage tracking. it's about Retention only.

  20. Image size quota

    It would be nice to be able to click on the quota graph and see exactly how large each image is, or if any duplicate images are registered as being stored twice.
