Hello Scarf Community!

We are excited to announce that the Docker Auto Package Creation feature now includes validation!

Create a package on Scarf

At the beginning of this year we announced the wildcard support with automatic package creation for Docker.
Auto-Package-Creation gives organizations the ability to specify a pattern that will be matched on a pull on your domain.

The Problem Validation Solves

This feature has been popular with organizations that have a lot of Docker images.

Now when these organizations implement the wildcard support and run {% c-line %}docker pull{% c-line-end %}, Scarf will verify that the package actually exists on the registry. Once validated, we create a package entry in Scarf for packages that are not already present.

That's it!

We look forward to hearing about your experience using this new feature with validation, and if you have any feedback or questions please let us know in the Scarf Community Slack.
