Images release allows you to share images with specific users or teams within the factory. This release will contain all the image applications, all architectures, and for the moment, only one distribution per release.
To release an image you need at least one built application. In order to make the release follow these steps:
- Go on “Images” tab
- Click on the image you want to release
- Go on under “SETTINGS” tab
- Expand “Release image” (at the bottom)
- Choose a release version (e.g. 1.0)
- Click on the “RELEASE IMAGE” button
Once the image is released you need to choose the audience (the users or teams you will share it with). You can also choose
Release to all people using this factory.
- Go on “Images” tab
- Click on RELEASED IMAGES
- Choose the released image you want to share
- Go to the “AUDIENCE” tabs
- Select one or multiples users/teams at the left
- Click the » (move-to-the-right) button to select them
- Click on “UPDATE AUDIENCE”
Finally, in order to use the released image outside the WebUI you need the token that was created during the release. The
Repository URL and
Repository access token are found in the release Overview (Images > RELEASED IMAGES > selected image). With them you will be able to use the download server that turns within the factory.
It is also possible to release an image from redpesk command line, alias
In order to do that you have to specify the slug of the image you want to release, the distribution targeted by the release, and the release version.
Additionally, you can specify a name for the “released image” that will be created.
The other flags are here if you want to set-up a specific audience for the released image:
- One or several user(s): flag
- One or several team(s): flag
- All users of the factory: flag
In order to get the slug of your image, you can use the
rp-cli images list as below.
$ rp-cli images list ID Slug Name Architecture Type Disabled a3d51574-35d7-4019-b677-b0fbc13effb2 intel-upboard Intel-Upboard x86_64 iotbzh (external) false 4e3c8997-affb-4768-ad6d-b213ff0356f0 redpesk-generic Redpesk-generic x86_64 standard false b4a97e36-7b8d-42f6-83c4-55ad24324f46 redpesk-minimal-arz-aarch-64-smack Redpesk-Minimal-Arz-aarch_64-Smack aarch64 iotbzh (external) false 09ce0d28-00a8-4d07-9ac0-95c37c9e5bed redpesk-minimal-arz-x86-64-smack Redpesk-Minimal-Arz-x86_64-Smack x86_64 iotbzh (external) false 21bf5665-c773-4e84-8d74-bb1460323547 renesas-gen3 Renesas-Gen3 aarch64 iotbzh (external) false 1205a8f4-1e7a-45f5-b581-80b7fabbc1cc rpi3-rpi4 Rpi3-Rpi4 aarch64 iotbzh (external) false 4477ebf9-5911-4bf9-bd7b-0204abc10f9b solidrun-solidsense SolidRun-SolidSense aarch64 iotbzh (external) false
In order to save time do not forget that
rp-cli has a completion system, for example once you wrote the
--distribution flag you can press TAB and
rp-cli will give you the available distributions! It is the same for users or teams.
Then, run the following command (adapt the distribution, the version and eventually the audience flags to your needs):
$ rp-cli images release redpesk-generic --distribution redpesk-lts-arz-1.1 -v 1.5 -- Image release requested by user -- Checking distribution validity... [OK] Requesting the factory to release the image "redpesk-generic"... [OK] Waiting for the image "redpesk-generic" to be released...[OK]
After that, you will be able to get the list of released images using:
$ rp-cli images releases list ID Slug Version Reference b8d5d383-142a-49ae-b8b6-d0f2ae04dc72 redpesk-generic-1.5 1.5 redpesk-generic
