How to access marketplace container repository?

Hi Team - I am trying to publish our solution on Marketplace. The solution is a kubernetes container and I am told that it should be uploaded to "marketplace container repository". Can someone help point where is marketplace container repository & how can I get access to it?

 

TIA.

Hi Pankaj,

 

I'm not familiar with the container repository by that name; however, we do have a container category in the Azure Marketplace. Are you seeking to get your solution in the marketplace like what is shown in the screen shot?

 

If so, you'll want to start by signing up as a publisher and either create a new partner ID or use an existing one. Either way, you'll do it here: https://aka.ms/joinmarketplace

Hello, 

Yes, we have a container offering in Marketplace, that will allow you to deliver containers for your Customers. The Offer currently is Bring your own license and when purchased, the container it will be delivered into the customer's Azure Container Registry.  Customers can utilize this container from their Kubernetes clusters as needed. 

 

This is the information  about how to build the offer: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/marketplace/cloud-partner-portal/containers/cpp-create-offer

 

Thanks,

Sorry but that's not what I was asking for. What I want to deliver to the customer is an Azure Application.

 

I have an ARM template configured to deliver the application. The ARM template has a container resource defined. The container is getting initialized using a Docker Image. Since the path is that of docker image, I have received a feedback that container image must come from the marketplace. I am not sure where in marketplace do I need to push this image so I can use it in my ARM template. Note that I am not delivering a container to the customer but an Azure Applicatio.

Re: How to access marketplace container repository?

Hello Keith,

 

I have the same problem, I need to deploy our container app to the web app as part of our managed application. MS does not allow to pull image from docker repo. I can not do deployment from azure marketplace because https://marketplace.azurecr.io docker repo is not public, it asking for credentials and AzVMImageOffer does not contain Container images. 

 

Am I understand correctly, that currently only by using helm I can pull images from the marketplace to the k8s and can not deploy them as a web app containers? I.e. there is no way to pull containers in web app as part of the offer?

 

Thank you.
