Docker push without admin


i’m in a corporate network with no admin rights.
I don’t wish to run a container, i just wish to import an image built somewhere else, and push it (in an openshift repo) using a docker push

i’d like to do a :
docker load -i [my_image]
docker login …
docker tag [my_tag] [my_path]
docker push [my_path]

Is there a chance for me to do that without admin rights ?
from a technical point of view : it should be.
Maybe use another tool with just the CLI.
Maybe the admin rights are mandatory

I’ll keep looking, and post the update should i find a solution

Thanks for any help

Edit1 : Docker is not installed on my computer

Admin rights are not required for what you want - just the rights to connect to a docker server.

apologies my question was not accurate,
i can’t install docker on Windows without admin rights, i’ll edit the question.
Therefore i’m looking for a workaround

Technically, you could send the commands to the docker daemon of your choice using curl, Postman or any other tool that can communicate with the REST api.

Hi, thanks for the answer.
It does make sense
just to be clear :
You propose I use a postman to do the login / then tag then push on the distant docker.
It seems complex for my need, i’ll try if i can get a swagger to help.
I’ll update if i find something very usefull

If your OpenShift repo is accessible on the public internet, maybe you can log on to, and do your work there. They give you a very nice docker session for four hours at a time.

Thanks a lot for your answer !
But only the internal network can reach my openshift server
