GCR Registry Scanning Tips

The repository name is the name that is shown in GCR, but not the full URI, see below for an example.


Repo config and name in GCR

Select the correct project.

Navigate to the repo you wish to scan.

In this example, circled in red, "gcp-qualys-demo/quickstart-image" is the repo name that you will enter in the Qualys registry scan job.


Image tag info in the GCP GCR repo

The tag name is circled in blue, this is what you will enter in the Qualys registry scan job if scanning by tag.

Enter the repo name and tag from the GCP console (red and blue examples are circled here as well)
