Problem using docker plugin with drone v1.0.0

Using docker plugin with drone v1.0.0, error message is:

+ /usr/local/bin/docker push ********/myimage:latest
The push refers to repository [********/myimage]
b1d96c528f3f: Preparing
... [more lines like this]
denied: requested access to the resource is denied

My complete .drone.yml

kind: pipeline
name: build_publish

- name: publish
  pull: always
  image: plugins/docker:linux-amd64
    auto_tag: true
    repo: myorg/myimage
      from_secret: docker_username
      from_secret: docker_password

docker_username and docker_password are configured as repo secrets and I’ve checked and recreated them multiple times, and manually logged in with the same credentials to check.

This job is triggered by a push to master branch.

I’m completely stumped, so please point out my mistake.


Can you please post the full output for the Docker plugin step. The plugin outputs additional information for debugging purposes that can be used to triage.

This is OP - I posted the log but it was blocked or something? Could you please check? thanks.

this is the key line in the logs, indicating the credentials are not provided. The root cause for this is typically related to configuration. Please provide the following details to help pinpoint the issue:

  1. version of Drone you are using
  2. the output of drone secret ls <repo> for your repository.
  3. provide the output of drone build info <repo> <build_number> for the failing build.

Hi @bradrydzewski - thanks for the help on this.

I have no idea what happened but while poking around trying to debug, it’s now pushed successfully. I probably screwed up somewhere along the way…

I have this problem “sometimes”. The workaround is to restart this build and 30% chance to success push.

  1. version of Drone you are using
  2. the output of drone secret ls <repo> for your repository.

@hawkhsieh your post is still missing the following:

  1. the results of drone build info <repo> <build_number> when the step fails
  2. your yaml file

Once the requested information is available, we can hep you debug. This is almost certainly a configuration issue. We know this because the following error indicates the secrets are empty:

Registry credentials not provided. Guest mode enabled.

This could be caused by yaml misconfiguration or secret misconfiguration, or both. The two items I requested above will help determine which.

In your example, you repo name must be the fully qualified name. For example

This problem seems not to happen anymore.
