Build image from ECR with assume-role

In the documentation it states you can use images from ECR for your pipeline.

Is it possible to get the images with AWS assume-role configured?



  name: <aws_account_id>.dkr.ecr.<region>
    access-key: $AWS_ACCESS_KEY
    secret-key: $AWS_SECRET_KEY

Are you asking if the credentials given could be for a IAM role instead of a IAM user ?

We've got the following setup:

Account A: IAM Users

Account B: ECR with container images and IAM Role to be assumed


So what I am looking for:

- Provide credentials for IAM User in Account A

- Provide IAM Role to assume in Account B 

- Use container image from Account B for the bitbucket pipeline


This currently can't be done, forcing me to add a user in account B to be able to access the image.

I tried it without the assume role part, but that still fails because it will search for IAM Users in Account B.

It also doesn't work if you grant access to users via ECR policy on account B. This is because docker login is done only against account A. Aws CLI has a solution for this via `--registry-id` flag. Can we somehow get that functionality here?

Follow up; we have faced same problem.

Suggested solution; allow to assume as a role

  name: <aws_account_id>.dkr.ecr.<region>
assume-role: $AWS_ROLE access-key: $AWS_ACCESS_KEY secret-key: $AWS_SECRET_KEY
