I have an instance of MicroK8s, I am currently migrating my applications. But I can't authenticate to Gitlab's private registry.

About my environment:

  • MicroK8s
  • Gitlab (with registry working securely)

Tests I performed

To test my private Gitlab registry I used another machine and did a docker pull registry.mydomain.com/my-group/my-image:my-tag.

In K8s I followed the instructions available on the K8s website and also the instructions in the answer to this question on SO.

I've already checked the namespaces, the secret was created correctly! I restored the credentials to confirm and they are correct.

Different ways I used to create the secret for imagePullSecrets.

First try

kubectl create secret docker-registry regcred \
  --namespace=my-namespace \
  --docker-server=registry.mydomain.com \
  --docker-username="my-user" \
  --docker-email="my-mail" \
  --docker-password="my-gitlab-personal-access-token"

Second attempt

kubectl create secret generic regcred \
 --namespace=my-namespace \
 --from-file=.dockerconfigjson=/home/hsouza/.docker/config.json \
 --type=kubernetes.io/dockerconfigjson

Both ways of creating my secret work, however when creating my pod the ImagePullBackOff error is presented.

For both attempts to generate the regcred I created the POD like this:

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  namespace: my-namespace
  name: test-private-register-pod
spec:
  containers:
  - name: test-private-register-pod
    image: registry.mydomain.com/my-group/my-image:1.0.0
  imagePullSecrets:
  - name: regcred

When analyzing with kubectl describe pod/test-private-register-pod the following message is returned:

In the gitlab nginx logs, the status code for K8s access is 401. I put it in a fictitious way to try to pull from https://requestcatcher.com/ and when analyzing the request made by K8s it does not send the header with Basic Auth .

This is my problem, I appreciate the community's help in trying to identify where I'm going wrong.
