containers.podman.podman_logout module – Log out of a container registry using podman

Note

This module is part of the containers.podman collection (version 1.9.4).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install containers.podman. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

To use it in a playbook, specify: containers.podman.podman_logout.

Synopsis

  • Log out of a container registry server using the podman logout command by deleting the cached credentials stored in the `auth.json` file. If the registry is not specified, the first registry under `[registries.search]` from `registries.conf `will be used. The path of the authentication file can be overridden by the user by setting the `authfile` flag. The default path used is `${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json`. All the cached credentials can be removed by setting the `all` flag. Warning - podman will use credentials in `${HOME}/.docker/config.json` to authenticate in case they are not found in the default `authfile`. However, the logout command will only removed credentials in the `authfile` specified.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • Podman installed on host

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

all

boolean

Remove the cached credentials for all registries in the auth file.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

authfile

path

Path of the authentication file. Default is ``${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/containers/auth.json`` You can also override the default path of the authentication file by setting the ``REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE`` environment variable. ``export REGISTRY_AUTH_FILE=path``

executable

string

Path to podman executable if it is not in the $PATH on the machine running podman

Default: "podman"

ignore_docker_credentials

boolean

Credentials created using other tools such as `docker login` are not removed unless the corresponding `authfile` is explicitly specified. Since podman also uses existing credentials in these files by default (for docker e.g. `${HOME}/.docker/config.json`), module execution will fail if a docker login exists for the registry specified in any `authfile` is used by podman. This can be ignored by setting `ignore_docker_credentials` to `yes` - the credentials will be kept and `changed` will be false. This option cannot be used together with `all` since in this case podman will not check for existing `authfiles` created by other tools.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

registry

string

Registry server. If the registry is not specified, the first registry under `[registries.search]` from `registries.conf` will be used.
