Bringing your own images

In certain scenarios (i.e. air-gapping), you may want to bring your own images rather than pulling them down from the Internet. This requires specifying your own Docker image registry/repository for each of the charts that make up the GitLab release.

Default image format

Our default format for the image in most cases includes the full path to the image, excluding the tag:

image:
  repository: repo.example.com/image
  tag: custom-tag

The end result will be repo.example.com/image:custom-tag.

Example values file

There is an example values file that demonstrates how to configure a custom Docker registry/repository and tag. You can copy relevant sections of this file for your own releases.

Note: Some of the charts (especially third party charts) sometimes have slightly different conventions for specifying the image registry/repository and tag. You can find documentation for third party charts on the Artifact Hub.
