Docker Build Configuration

In the previous step, we discussed Git Configurations. In this section, we will provide information on the Docker Build Configuration.

Docker build configuration is used to create and push docker images in the docker registry of your application. You will provide all the docker related information to build and push docker images in this step.

Only one docker image can be created even for multi-git repository applications as explained in the previous step.

To add docker build configuration, You need to provide three sections as given below:

  • Image store

  • Checkout path

  • Advanced

Image Store

In Image store section, You need to provide two inputs as given below:

  1. Docker registry

  2. Docker repository

1. Docker Registry

Select the docker registry that you wish to use. This registry will be used to store docker images.

2. Docker Repository

In this field, add the name of your docker repository. The repository that you specify here will store a collection of related docker images. Whenever an image is added here, it will be stored with a new tag version.

If you are using docker hub account, you need to enter the repository name along with your username. For example - If my username is kartik579 and repo name is devtron-trial, then enter kartik579/devtron-trial instead of only devtron-trial.

Checkout path

Checkout path including inputs:

  1. Git checkout path

  2. Docker file (relative)

1. Git checkout path

In this field, you have to provide the Git checkout path of your repository. This repository is the same that you had defined earlier in git configuration details.

2. Docker File Path

Here, you provide a relative path where your docker file is located. Ensure that the dockerfile is present on this path.


Set Target Platform for the build

Before selecting a custom target platform, please ensure that the architecture and the operating system is supported by the registry type you are using, otherwise builds will fail. Devtron uses BuildX to build images for mutiple target Platforms, which requires higher CI worker resources. To allocate more resources, you can increase value of the following parameters in the devtron-cm configmap in devtroncd namespace.





To edit the devtron-cm configmap in devtroncd namespace:

kubectl edit configmap devtron-cm -n devtroncd 

If target platform is not set, Devtron will build image for architecture and operating system of the k8s node on which CI is running.

The Target Platform feature might not work in minikube & microk8s clusters as of now.

Docker build arguments is a collapsed view including

  • Key

  • Value


This field will contain the key parameter and the value for the specified key for your docker build. This field is Optional. (If required, this can be overridden at CI step later)
