docker_image_facts - Inspect docker images

New in version 2.1.0.

Synopsis

  • Provide one or more image names, and the module will inspect each, returning an array of inspection results.

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.6
  • docker-py >= 1.7.0
  • Please note that the docker-py Python module has been superseded by docker (see here for details). For Python 2.6, docker-py must be used. Otherwise, it is recommended to install the docker Python module. Note that both modules should not be installed at the same time. Also note that when both modules are installed and one of them is uninstalled, the other might no longer function and a reinstall of it is required.
  • Docker API >= 1.20

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_version Default:
auto
The version of the Docker API running on the Docker Host. Defaults to the latest version of the API supported by docker-py.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_API_VERSION will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.

aliases: docker_api_version
cacert_path
Use a CA certificate when performing server verification by providing the path to a CA certificate file.
If the value is not specified in the task and the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH is set, the file ca.pem from the directory specified in the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH will be used.

aliases: tls_ca_cert
cert_path
Path to the client's TLS certificate file.
If the value is not specified in the task and the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH is set, the file cert.pem from the directory specified in the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH will be used.

aliases: tls_client_cert
debug
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Debug mode
docker_host Default:
unix://var/run/docker.sock
The URL or Unix socket path used to connect to the Docker API. To connect to a remote host, provide the TCP connection string. For example, 'tcp://192.0.2.23:2376'. If TLS is used to encrypt the connection, the module will automatically replace 'tcp' in the connection URL with 'https'.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_HOST will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.

aliases: docker_url
key_path
Path to the client's TLS key file.
If the value is not specified in the task and the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH is set, the file key.pem from the directory specified in the environment variable DOCKER_CERT_PATH will be used.

aliases: tls_client_key
name
required
An image name or a list of image names. Name format will be name[:tag] or repository/name[:tag], where tag is optional. If a tag is not provided, 'latest' will be used.
ssl_version
Provide a valid SSL version number. Default value determined by ssl.py module.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_SSL_VERSION will be used instead.
timeout Default:
60
The maximum amount of time in seconds to wait on a response from the API.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_TIMEOUT will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.
tls
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Secure the connection to the API by using TLS without verifying the authenticity of the Docker host server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_TLS will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.
tls_hostname Default:
localhost
When verifying the authenticity of the Docker Host server, provide the expected name of the server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_TLS_HOSTNAME will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.
tls_verify
bool
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Secure the connection to the API by using TLS and verifying the authenticity of the Docker host server.
If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY will be used instead. If the environment variable is not set, the default value will be used.

Notes

Note

  • Connect to the Docker daemon by providing parameters with each task or by defining environment variables. You can define DOCKER_HOST, DOCKER_TLS_HOSTNAME, DOCKER_API_VERSION, DOCKER_CERT_PATH, DOCKER_SSL_VERSION, DOCKER_TLS, DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY and DOCKER_TIMEOUT. If you are using docker machine, run the script shipped with the product that sets up the environment. It will set these variables for you. See https://docker-py.readthedocs.io/en/stable/machine/ for more details.
