Last updated 13th April, 2022.


OVHcloud Managed Private Registry service provides you a managed Harbor, an authenticated Docker registry where you can privately store your Docker images. This guide will explain how to manage users and projects on your OVHcloud Managed Private Registry service.



You can manage projects, users and rights on your private registry by using the Harbor UI.

Creating a new project

A project in Harbor contains all repositories of an application. No images can be pushed to Harbor before the project is created.

There are two types of project in Harbor:

  • Public: All users can read from a public Harbor project
  • Private: Only users with proper privileges can read from this projects.

Let's create a private project:

  1. Create a new project on Harbor UI

  2. Call it private and leave the public checkbox unchecked

Keep -1 for the storage quota if you don't want limitations.

After the project is created, you can browse repositories, helm charts, members, labels, scanner, policy, robot accounts, webhooks, logs and configuration using the navigation tab.
