Automated Build Failing - "authentication required"

(Andrew Dunham) #1

Hi there,

I’m getting an “authentication required” error with an automated build of mine - any idea what’s up with that, and how I can fix it?

See the build here:

The particular error is: Error pushing to registry: Authentication is required.

+1, getting the same error

nothing else suspicious in logs, everything builds fine, i’m seeing “Error pushing to registry: Authentication is required.” on the “Error” line on the build page.

Second job i started ( no changes to image ) completed fine just now.

+1 Exact same problem. Have an automated build based off a public GitHub repo that completes the build successfully. However, after building it errors with this status “Error pushing to registry: Authentication is required.”. This problem did not exist a month ago so clearly a bug has crept into code.

Also, restarted the job from Docker Hub to no effect.

As this problem has been going on for at least half a day can someone let us know if anyone is looking into this at least. Thanks.

+1 Same problem here. Manual pushed worked finde, delete the repo and created an automated build - authentication required error occurs

Sorry about this issue – we’re checking into it and will update the status here:

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the update. The status page shows that the problem has been fixed, but this build that I just ran failed with the same error.

I am also currently receiving the “Error pushing to registry: Authentication is required.” when building this repository:

The build succeeded on the fourth try, so I guess the authentication error was transient. Weird.
