Microsoft/ACR extends support

  • General queries about the supported features of ACR.
  • Unable to pull image due to authentication errors, image size, and client-side issues with container runtime.

  • Issues with slow push/pull operations due to client, network, or ACR.

  • Authentication issues in ACR, authentication errors in integration, repository-based access role(RBAC).

Shared responsibility

  • Issues with slow push/pull operations caused by a slow-performing client VM, network, or ACR. Here the customers have to provide the time range, image name, and configuration settings.
  • Issues with Integration of ACR with any other Azure service. Here the customers have to provide the details of the client used to build and pull the image and push it to ACR. For example, the customer uses the DevOps pipeline to build the image and push it to ACR.

Customers have to self support

  • Microsoft/ACR can’t make any changes if there's a detection of base image vulnerability in the security center (Microsoft Defender for Cloud). Customers can reach out for guidance
  • Microsoft/ACR can’t make any changes with Dockerfile. Customers have to identify and review it from their end.
