artifactory as docker registry

I tried to set up artifactory as docker registry as shown in this video:

However, I don’t have SSL installed in artifactory so I’m using the –insecure-registry flag. (as shown in error in docker build publish plugin and Remote access to a private docker-registry)

  • How I can running GUI application on Docker for Mac?
  • Screen within Docker from ssh
  • Docker building an image for ELK stack
  • Why is mounting the /var/hyperledger/production to the host volume causing an error?
  • Database created in Dockerfile does not appear in running container
  • Anyway, I don’t know how to figure out the artifactory as docker registry url so I can do this:
    curl -k -uusername:password “”

    This page,, shows at the bottom that something called a reverse proxy might be needed? Is this true and if so how do I install such a thing?

  • docker fails to mount from CIFS mounted host directory
  • Matplotlib building on docker
  • Connection Docker (IBM Integration Bus) to DataCache
  • Can docker use the existing host system to run a command in isolation like lxc-execute
  • Unable to run android emulator inside Docker container
  • Where are the docker daemon logs stored on ubuntu 16.04 xenial xerus?

    The reason behind requiring a reverse proxy in front of Artifactory is related to a Docker client limitation – you cannot use a context path when providing the registry path, e.g is not valid.
    The Docker client assumes you are working with one big registry for all images, while Artifactory allows you to manage multiple registries (repositories) on the same server.

    To overcome this issue you should setup a reverse proxy which will allow the Docker client to send requests to the root context and forward those requests to the correct repository path in Artifactory. For example, forwarding requests from to

    The Artifactory documentation contains configuration examples for NginX, Apache and HAProxy.
    Notice that there are different configurations for Docker registry API v1 and v2.

    After setting up the reverse proxy, the Docker client should use the proxy in order to access Artifactory.

    If you are using the –insecure-registry flag there is no need to configure an SSL certificate. With older versions of Docker, before this flag was introduced (Docker 1.3.2) it was a mandatory requirement.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
