Customizing Red Hat Quay using configuration options

Red Hat OpenShift Documentation Team

Abstract

Configure Red Hat Quay

Chapter 1. Getting started with Red Hat Quay configuration

Red Hat Quay can be deployed by an independent, standalone configuration, or by using the OpenShift Container Platform Red Hat Quay Operator.

How you create, retrieve, update, and validate the Red Hat Quay configuration varies depending on the type of deployment you are using. However, the core configuration options are the same for either deployment type. Core configuration can be set by one of the following options:

  • Directly, by editing the config.yaml file. See "Editing the configuration file" for more information.
  • Programmatically, by using the configuration API. See "Using the configuration API" for more information.
  • Visually, by using the configuration tool UI.

    Note

    As of Red Hat Quay 3.10, the configuration tool has been removed on OpenShift Container Platform deployments, meaning that users cannot configure, or reconfigure, directly from the OpenShift Container Platform console.

    As a workaround, you can deploy the configuration tool locally and create your own configuration bundle. This includes entering the database and storage credentials used for your Red Hat Quay on OpenShift Container Platform deployment, generating a config.yaml file, and using it to deploy Red Hat Quay on OpenShift Container Platform via the command-line interface.

    To deploy the configuration tool locally, see Getting started with Red Hat Quay and follow the instructions up to "Configuring Red Hat Quay".

For standalone deployments of Red Hat Quay, you must supply the minimum required configuration parameters before the registry can be started. The minimum requirements to start a Red Hat Quay registry can be found in the "Retrieving the current configuration" section.

If you install Red Hat Quay on OpenShift Container Platform using the Red Hat Quay Operator, you do not need to supply configuration parameters because the Red Hat Quay Operator supplies default information to deploy the registry.

After you have deployed Red Hat Quay with the desired configuration, you should retrieve, and save, the full configuration from your deployment. The full configuration contains additional generated values that you might need when restarting or upgrading your system.

Chapter 2. Red Hat Quay configuration disclaimer

With both standalone and Operator-based deployments of Red Hat Quay certain features and configuration parameters are not actively used or implemented. As a result, feature flags, such as those that enable or disable certain features, and configuration parameters that are not explicitly documented or requested for documentation by Red Hat Support, should only be modified with caution. Unused features or parameters might not be fully tested, supported, or compatible with Red Hat Quay. Modifying unused features parameters might lead to unexpected issues or disruptions with your deployment.

For information about configuring Red Hat Quay in standalone deployments, see Advanced Red Hat Quay configuration

For information about configuring Red Hat Quay Operator deployments, see Configuring Red Hat Quay on OpenShift Container Platform

2.1. Configuration updates for Red Hat Quay 3.10

The following sections detail new configuration fields added in Red Hat Quay 3.10.

2.1.1. Namespace auto-pruning configuration fields

With Red Hat Quay 3.10, deployments can be configured to automatically prune old image tags by a specified, allotted amount, or by the time in which they were created.

Table 2.1. Namespace auto-pruning configuration field

Field

Type

Description

FEATURE_AUTO_PRUNE

Boolean

When set to True, enables functionality related to the auto-pruning of tags.
Default: False

SECURITY_SCANNER_V4_MANIFEST_CLEANUP

Boolean

When set to true the Red Hat Quay garbage collector removes manifests that are not referenced by other tags or manifests.
Default: True

ROBOTS_DISALLOW

Boolean

When set to true, robot accounts are prevented from all interactions, as well as from being created
Default: False

FEATURE_UI_V2_REPO_SETTINGS

Boolean

When set to True, enables repository settings in the Red Hat Quay v2 UI.
Default: False

2.2. Editing the configuration file

To deploy a standalone instance of Red Hat Quay, you must provide the minimal configuration information. The requirements for a minimal configuration can be found in "Red Hat Quay minimal configuration."

After supplying the required fields, you can validate your configuration. If there are any issues, they will be highlighted.

Note

It is possible to use the configuration API to validate the configuration, but this requires starting the Quay container in configuration mode.

To deploy the configuration tool locally, see Getting started with Red Hat Quay and follow the instructions up to "Configuring Red Hat Quay".

For changes to take effect, the registry must be restarted.

2.3. Location of configuration file in a standalone deployment

For standalone deployments of Red Hat Quay, the config.yaml file must be specified when starting the Red Hat Quay registry. This file is located in the configuration volume. For example, the configuration file is located at $QUAY/config/config.yaml when deploying Red Hat Quay by the following command:

$ sudo podman run -d --rm -p 80:8080 -p 443:8443 \
   --name=quay \
   -v $QUAY/config:/conf/stack:Z \
   -v $QUAY/storage:/datastorage:Z \
   registry.redhat.io/quay/quay-rhel8:v3.10.5

2.4. Minimal configuration

The following configuration options are required for a standalone deployment of Red Hat Quay:

  • Server hostname
  • HTTP or HTTPS
  • Authentication type, for example, Database or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
  • Secret keys for encrypting data
  • Storage for images
  • Database for metadata
  • Redis for build logs and user events
  • Tag expiration options

2.4.1. Sample minimal configuration file

The following example shows a sample minimal configuration file that uses local storage for images:

AUTHENTICATION_TYPE: Database
BUILDLOGS_REDIS:
    host: quay-server.example.com
    password: strongpassword
    port: 6379
    ssl: false
DATABASE_SECRET_KEY: 0ce4f796-c295-415b-bf9d-b315114704b8
DB_URI: postgresql://quayuser:quaypass@quay-server.example.com:5432/quay
DEFAULT_TAG_EXPIRATION: 2w
DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_CONFIG:
    default:
        - LocalStorage
        - storage_path: /datastorage/registry
DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_DEFAULT_LOCATIONS: []
DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_PREFERENCE:
    - default
PREFERRED_URL_SCHEME: http
SECRET_KEY: e8f9fe68-1f84-48a8-a05f-02d72e6eccba
SERVER_HOSTNAME: quay-server.example.com
SETUP_COMPLETE: true
TAG_EXPIRATION_OPTIONS:
    - 0s
    - 1d
    - 1w
    - 2w
    - 4w
USER_EVENTS_REDIS:
    host: quay-server.example.com
    port: 6379
    ssl: false
Note

The SETUP_COMPLETE field indicates that the configuration has been validated. You should use the configuration editor tool to validate your configuration before starting the registry.

2.4.2. Local storage

Using local storage for images is only recommended when deploying a registry for proof of concept purposes.

When configuring local storage, storage is specified on the command line when starting the registry.

The following command maps a local directory, $QUAY/storage to the datastorage path in the container:

$ sudo podman run -d --rm -p 80:8080 -p 443:8443 \
   --name=quay \
   -v $QUAY/config:/conf/stack:Z \
   -v $QUAY/storage:/datastorage:Z \
   registry.redhat.io/quay/quay-rhel8:v3.10.5

2.4.3. Cloud storage

Storage configuration is detailed in the Image storage section. For some users, it might be useful to compare the difference between Google Cloud Platform and local storage configurations. For example, the following YAML presents a Google Cloud Platform storage configuration:

$QUAY/config/config.yaml

DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_CONFIG:
    default:
        - GoogleCloudStorage
        - access_key: GOOGQIMFB3ABCDEFGHIJKLMN
          bucket_name: quay_bucket
          secret_key: FhDAYe2HeuAKfvZCAGyOioNaaRABCDEFGHIJKLMN
          storage_path: /datastorage/registry
DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_DEFAULT_LOCATIONS: []
DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_PREFERENCE:
    - default

When starting the registry using cloud storage, no configuration is required on the command line. For example:

$ sudo podman run -d --rm -p 80:8080 -p 443:8443 \
   --name=quay \
   -v $QUAY/config:/conf/stack:Z \
   registry.redhat.io/quay/quay-rhel8:v3.10.5

Enables Red Hat Quay to act as a pull through cache for upstream registries.

Default: false

3.12. Robot account configuration fields

Table 3.12. Robot account configuration fields
FieldTypeDescription

ROBOTS_DISALLOW

Boolean

When set to true, robot accounts are prevented from all interactions, as well as from being created
Default: False

3.13. Pre-configuring Red Hat Quay for automation

Red Hat Quay supports several configuration options that enable automation. Users can configure these options before deployment to reduce the need for interaction with the user interface.

3.13.1. Allowing the API to create the first user

To create the first user, users need to set the FEATURE_USER_INITIALIZE parameter to true and call the /api/v1/user/initialize API. Unlike all other registry API calls that require an OAuth token generated by an OAuth application in an existing organization, the API endpoint does not require authentication.

Users can use the API to create a user such as quayadmin after deploying Red Hat Quay, provided no other users have been created. For more information, see Using the API to create the first user.

3.13.2. Enabling general API access

Users should set the BROWSER_API_CALLS_XHR_ONLY configuration option to false to allow general access to the Red Hat Quay registry API.

3.13.3. Adding a superuser

After deploying Red Hat Quay, users can create a user and give the first user administrator privileges with full permissions. Users can configure full permissions in advance by using the SUPER_USER configuration object. For example:

# ...
SERVER_HOSTNAME: quay-server.example.com
SETUP_COMPLETE: true
SUPER_USERS:
  - quayadmin
# ...

3.13.4. Restricting user creation

After you have configured a superuser, you can restrict the ability to create new users to the superuser group by setting the FEATURE_USER_CREATION to false. For example:

# ...
FEATURE_USER_INITIALIZE: true
BROWSER_API_CALLS_XHR_ONLY: false
SUPER_USERS:
- quayadmin
FEATURE_USER_CREATION: false
# ...

3.13.5. Enabling new functionality in Red Hat Quay 3.10

To use new Red Hat Quay 3.10 functions, enable some or all of the following features:

# ...
FEATURE_UI_V2: true
FEATURE_UI_V2_REPO_SETTINGS: true
FEATURE_AUTO_PRUNE: true
ROBOTS_DISALLOW: false
# ...

3.13.6. Suggested configuration for automation

The following config.yaml parameters are suggested for automation:

# ...
FEATURE_USER_INITIALIZE: true
BROWSER_API_CALLS_XHR_ONLY: false
SUPER_USERS:
- quayadmin
FEATURE_USER_CREATION: false
# ...

3.13.7. Deploying the Red Hat Quay Operator using the initial configuration

Use the following procedure to deploy Red Hat Quay on OpenShift Container Platform using the initial configuration.

Prerequisites

  • You have installed the oc CLI.

Procedure

  1. Create a secret using the configuration file:

    $ oc create secret generic -n quay-enterprise --from-file config.yaml=./config.yaml init-config-bundle-secret
  2. Create a quayregistry.yaml file. Identify the unmanaged components and reference the created secret, for example:

    apiVersion: quay.redhat.com/v1
    kind: QuayRegistry
    metadata:
      name: example-registry
      namespace: quay-enterprise
    spec:
      configBundleSecret: init-config-bundle-secret
  3. Deploy the Red Hat Quay registry:

    $ oc create -n quay-enterprise -f quayregistry.yaml

3.13.8. Using the API to create the first user

Use the following procedure to create the first user in your Red Hat Quay organization.

Prerequisites

  • The config option FEATURE_USER_INITIALIZE must be set to true.
  • No users can already exist in the database.
Procedure

This procedure requests an OAuth token by specifying "access_token": true.

  1. Open your Red Hat Quay configuration file and update the following configuration fields:

    FEATURE_USER_INITIALIZE: true
    SUPER_USERS:
         -  quayadmin
  2. Stop the Red Hat Quay service by entering the following command:

    $ sudo podman stop quay
  3. Start the Red Hat Quay service by entering the following command:

    $ sudo podman run -d -p 80:8080 -p 443:8443 --name=quay -v $QUAY/config:/conf/stack:Z  -v $QUAY/storage:/datastorage:Z {productrepo}/{quayimage}:{productminv}
  4. Run the following CURL command to generate a new user with a username, password, email, and access token:

    $ curl -X POST -k  http://quay-server.example.com/api/v1/user/initialize --header 'Content-Type: application/json' --data '{ "username": "quayadmin", "password":"quaypass12345", "email": "quayadmin@example.com", "access_token": true}'

    If successful, the command returns an object with the username, email, and encrypted password. For example:

    {"access_token":"6B4QTRSTSD1HMIG915VPX7BMEZBVB9GPNY2FC2ED", "email":"quayadmin@example.com","encrypted_password":"1nZMLH57RIE5UGdL/yYpDOHLqiNCgimb6W9kfF8MjZ1xrfDpRyRs9NUnUuNuAitW","username":"quayadmin"} # gitleaks:allow

    If a user already exists in the database, an error is returned:

    {"message":"Cannot initialize user in a non-empty database"}

    If your password is not at least eight characters or contains whitespace, an error is returned:

    {"message":"Failed to initialize user: Invalid password, password must be at least 8 characters and contain no whitespace."}
  5. Log in to your Red Hat Quay deployment by entering the following command:

    $ sudo podman login -u quayadmin -p quaypass12345 http://quay-server.example.com --tls-verify=false

    Example output

    Login Succeeded!

3.13.8.1. Using the OAuth token

After invoking the API, you can call out the rest of the Red Hat Quay API by specifying the returned OAuth code.

Prerequisites

  • You have invoked the /api/v1/user/initialize API, and passed in the username, password, and email address.

Procedure

  • Obtain the list of current users by entering the following command:

    $ curl -X GET -k -H "Authorization: Bearer 6B4QTRSTSD1HMIG915VPX7BMEZBVB9GPNY2FC2ED" https://example-registry-quay-quay-enterprise.apps.docs.quayteam.org/api/v1/superuser/users/

    Example output:

    {
        "users": [
            {
                "kind": "user",
                "name": "quayadmin",
                "username": "quayadmin",
                "email": "quayadmin@example.com",
                "verified": true,
                "avatar": {
                    "name": "quayadmin",
                    "hash": "3e82e9cbf62d25dec0ed1b4c66ca7c5d47ab9f1f271958298dea856fb26adc4c",
                    "color": "#e7ba52",
                    "kind": "user"
                },
                "super_user": true,
                "enabled": true
            }
        ]
    }

    In this instance, the details for the quayadmin user are returned as it is the only user that has been created so far.

3.13.8.2. Using the API to create an organization

The following procedure details how to use the API to create a Red Hat Quay organization.

Prerequisites

  • You have invoked the /api/v1/user/initialize API, and passed in the username, password, and email address.
  • You have called out the rest of the Red Hat Quay API by specifying the returned OAuth code.

Procedure

  1. To create an organization, use a POST call to api/v1/organization/ endpoint:

3.19. Security scanner configuration fields

Table 3.17. Security scanner configuration
FieldTypeDescription

FEATURE_SECURITY_SCANNER

Boolean

Enable or disable the security scanner

Default: false

FEATURE_SECURITY_NOTIFICATIONS

Boolean

If the security scanner is enabled, turn on or turn off security notifications

Default: false

SECURITY_SCANNER_V4_REINDEX_THRESHOLD

String

This parameter is used to determine the minimum time, in seconds, to wait before re-indexing a manifest that has either previously failed or has changed states since the last indexing. The data is calculated from the last_indexed datetime in the manifestsecuritystatus table. This parameter is used to avoid trying to re-index every failed manifest on every indexing run. The default time to re-index is 300 seconds.

SECURITY_SCANNER_V4_ENDPOINT

String

The endpoint for the V4 security scanner

Pattern:
^http(s)?://(.)+$

Example:
http://192.168.99.101:6060

SECURITY_SCANNER_V4_PSK

String

The generated pre-shared key (PSK) for Clair

SECURITY_SCANNER_ENDPOINT

String

The endpoint for the V2 security scanner

Pattern:
^http(s)?://(.)+$

Example:
http://192.168.99.100:6060

SECURITY_SCANNER_INDEXING_INTERVAL

Integer

This parameter is used to determine the number of seconds between indexing intervals in the security scanner. When indexing is triggered, Red Hat Quay will query its database for manifests that must be indexed by Clair. These include manifests that have not yet been indexed and manifests that previously failed indexing.

Default: 30

FEATURE_SECURITY_SCANNER_NOTIFY_ON_NEW_INDEX

Boolean

Whether to allow sending notifications about vulnerabilities for new pushes.
Default: True

SECURITY_SCANNER_V4_MANIFEST_CLEANUP

Boolean

Whether the Red Hat Quay garbage collector removes manifests that are not referenced by other tags or manifests.
Default*: True

3.19.1. Re-indexing with Clair v4

When Clair v4 indexes a manifest, the result should be deterministic. For example, the same manifest should produce the same index report. This is true until the scanners are changed, as using different scanners will produce different information relating to a specific manifest to be returned in the report. Because of this, Clair v4 exposes a state representation of the indexing engine (/indexer/api/v1/index_state) to determine whether the scanner configuration has been changed.

Red Hat Quay leverages this index state by saving it to the index report when parsing to Quay’s database. If this state has changed since the manifest was previously scanned, Red Hat Quay will attempt to re-index that manifest during the periodic indexing process.

By default this parameter is set to 30 seconds. Users might decrease the time if they want the indexing process to run more frequently, for example, if they did not want to wait 30 seconds to see security scan results in the UI after pushing a new tag. Users can also change the parameter if they want more control over the request pattern to Clair and the pattern of database operations being performed on the Red Hat Quay database.

3.19.2. Example security scanner configuration

The following YAML is the suggested configuration when enabling the security scanner feature.

String

This setting is used with multiple Executors. It indicates how many retries are attempted to start a Build before a different Executor is chosen. Setting to 0 means there are no restrictions on how many tries the build job needs to have. This value should be kept intentionally small (three or less) to ensure failovers happen quickly during infrastructure failures. You must specify a value for this setting. For example, Kubernetes is set as the first executor and EC2 as the second executor. If you want the last attempt to run a job to always be executed on EC2 and not Kubernetes, you can set the Kubernetes executor’s MINIMUM_RETRY_THRESHOLD to 1 and EC2’s MINIMUM_RETRY_THRESHOLD to 0 (defaults to 0 if not set). In this case, the Kubernetes' MINIMUM_RETRY_THRESHOLD retries_remaining(1) would evaluate to False, therefore falling back to the second executor configured.

+ Default: False

FEATURE_UI_V2_REPO_SETTINGS

Boolean

When set to True, enables repository settings in the Red Hat Quay v2 UI.

+ Default: False

3.39.1. v2 user interface configuration

With FEATURE_UI_V2 enabled, you can toggle between the current version of the user interface and the new version of the user interface.

Important
  • This UI is currently in beta and subject to change. In its current state, users can only create, view, and delete organizations, repositories, and image tags.
  • When running Red Hat Quay in the old UI, timed-out sessions would require that the user input their password again in the pop-up window. With the new UI, users are returned to the main page and required to input their username and password credentials. This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future version of the new UI.
  • There is a discrepancy in how image manifest sizes are reported between the legacy UI and the new UI. In the legacy UI, image manifests were reported in mebibytes. In the new UI, Red Hat Quay uses the standard definition of megabyte (MB) to report image manifest sizes.

Procedure

  1. In your deployment’s config.yaml file, add the FEATURE_UI_V2 parameter and set it to true, for example:

    ---
    FEATURE_TEAM_SYNCING: false
    FEATURE_UI_V2: true
    FEATURE_USER_CREATION: true
    ---
  2. Log in to your Red Hat Quay deployment.
  3. In the navigation pane of your Red Hat Quay deployment, you are given the option to toggle between Current UI and New UI. Click the toggle button to set it to new UI, and then click Use Beta Environment, for example:

    Red Hat Quay v2 UI toggle

Important

Altering session lifetime is not recommended. Administrators should be aware of the allotted time when setting a session timeout. If you set the time too early, it might interrupt your workflow.

Session timeout YAML configuration

PERMANENT_SESSION_LIFETIME: 3000

Chapter 4. Environment variables

Red Hat Quay supports a limited number of environment variables for dynamic configuration.

4.1. Geo-replication

The same configuration should be used across all regions, with exception of the storage backend, which can be configured explicitly using the QUAY_DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_PREFERENCE environment variable.

Table 4.1. Geo-replication configuration
VariableTypeDescription

QUAY_DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_PREFERENCE

String

The preferred storage engine (by ID in DISTRIBUTED_STORAGE_CONFIG) to use.

4.2. Database connection pooling

Red Hat Quay is composed of many different processes which all run within the same container. Many of these processes interact with the database.

If enabled, each process that interacts with the database will contain a connection pool. These per-process connection pools are configured to maintain a maximum of 20 connections. Under heavy load, it is possible to fill the connection pool for every process within a Red Hat Quay container. Under certain deployments and loads, this might require analysis to ensure that Red Hat Quay does not exceed the configured database’s maximum connection count.

Overtime, the connection pools will release idle connections. To release all connections immediately, Red Hat Quay requires a restart.

Database connection pooling can be toggled by setting the environment variable DB_CONNECTION_POOLING to true or false.

Table 4.2. Database connection pooling configuration
VariableTypeDescription

DB_CONNECTION_POOLING

Boolean

Enable or disable database connection pooling

If database connection pooling is enabled, it is possible to change the maximum size of the connection pool. This can be done through the following config.yaml option:

config.yaml

...
DB_CONNECTION_ARGS:
  max_connections: 10
...

4.3. HTTP connection counts

It is possible to specify the quantity of simultaneous HTTP connections using environment variables. These can be specified as a whole, or for a specific component. The default for each is 50 parallel connections per process.

Table 4.3. HTTP connection counts configuration
VariableTypeDescription

WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT

Number

Simultaneous HTTP connections

Default: 50

WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT_REGISTRY

Number

Simultaneous HTTP connections for registry

Default: WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT

WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT_WEB

Number

Simultaneous HTTP connections for web UI

Default: WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT

WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT_SECSCAN

Number

Simultaneous HTTP connections for Clair

Default: WORKER_CONNECTION_COUNT

4.4. Worker count variables

Table 4.4. Worker count variables
VariableTypeDescription

WORKER_COUNT

Number

Generic override for number of processes

WORKER_COUNT_REGISTRY

Number

Specifies the number of processes to handle Registry requests within the Quay container

Values: Integer between 8 and 64

WORKER_COUNT_WEB

Number

Specifies the number of processes to handle UI/Web requests within the container

Values: Integer between 2 and 32

WORKER_COUNT_SECSCAN

Number

Specifies the number of processes to handle Security Scanning (e.g. Clair) integration within the container

Values: Integer. Because the Operator specifies 2 vCPUs for resource requests and limits, setting this value between 2 and 4 is safe. However, users can run more, for example, 16, if warranted.

4.5. Debug variables

The following debug variables are available on Red Hat Quay.

Table 4.5. Debug configuration variables
VariableTypeDescription

DEBUGLOG

Boolean

Whether to enable or disable debug logs.

USERS_DEBUG

Integer. Either 0 or 1.

Used to debug LDAP operations in clear text, including passwords. Must be used with DEBUGLOG=TRUE.

Important

Setting USERS_DEBUG=1 exposes credentials in clear text. This variable should be removed from the Red Hat Quay deployment after debugging. The log file that is generated with this environment variable should be scrutinized, and passwords should be removed before sending to other users. Use with caution.

Chapter 5. Clair security scanner

5.1. Clair configuration overview

Clair is configured by a structured YAML file. Each Clair node needs to specify what mode it will run in and a path to a configuration file through CLI flags or environment variables. For example:

$ clair -conf ./path/to/config.yaml -mode indexer

or

$ clair -conf ./path/to/config.yaml -mode matcher

The aforementioned commands each start two Clair nodes using the same configuration file. One runs the indexing facilities, while other runs the matching facilities.

If you are running Clair in combo mode, you must supply the indexer, matcher, and notifier configuration blocks in the configuration.

5.1.1. Information about using Clair in a proxy environment

Environment variables respected by the Go standard library can be specified if needed, for example:

  • HTTP_PROXY

    $ export HTTP_PROXY=http://<user_name>:<password>@<proxy_host>:<proxy_port>
  • HTTPS_PROXY.

    $ export HTTPS_PROXY=https://<user_name>:<password>@<proxy_host>:<proxy_port>
  • SSL_CERT_DIR

    $ export SSL_CERT_DIR=/<path>/<to>/<ssl>/<certificates>
  • NO_PROXY

    $ export NO_PROXY=<comma_separated_list_of_hosts_and_domains>

If you are using a proxy server in your environment with Clair’s updater URLs, you must identify which URL needs to be added to the proxy allowlist to ensure that Clair can access them unimpeded. For example, the osv updater requires access to https://osv-vulnerabilities.storage.googleapis.com to fetch ecosystem data dumps. In this scenario, the URL must be added to the proxy allowlist. For a full list of updater URLs, see "Clair updater URLs".

You must also ensure that the standard Clair URLs are added to the proxy allowlist:

  • https://search.maven.org/solrsearch/select
  • https://catalog.redhat.com/api/containers/
  • https://access.redhat.com/security/data/metrics/repository-to-cpe.json
  • https://access.redhat.com/security/data/metrics/container-name-repos-map.json

When configuring the proxy server, take into account any authentication requirements or specific proxy settings needed to enable seamless communication between Clair and these URLs. By thoroughly documenting and addressing these considerations, you can ensure that Clair functions effectively while routing its updater traffic through the proxy.

If stomp.direct is set to true, this value limits the number of notifications sent in a single direct delivery. For example, if direct is set to true, and rollup is set to 5, the notifier delivers no more than 5 notifications in a single JSON payload to the broker. Setting the value to 0 effectively sets it to 1.

.stomp.callback
