docker push missing the --all-tags option


I have a bitbucket-pipeline based on python 3.6.9 which according to

docker --version


docker: Docker version 19.03.15, build 99e3ed8

however this version of docker does not have the option for push --all-tags.

docker push --help

Usage: docker push [OPTIONS] NAME[:TAG]

Push an image or a repository to a registry


--disable-content-trust Skip image signing (default true)

so this fails

docker push --all-tags
Pushing to ECR: repo-name:2.20.2
unknown flag: --all-tags
See 'docker push --help'.

However the --all-tags flag was introduced before docker version 10, so how is this possible? Is the only option to use the "pipe: atlassian/aws-ecr-push-image" or to push each tag separately?

Can I install an publically available version of docker?

Hi, @Jason Harrison! Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Indeed, this version doesn't have the ability to do "docker push --all-tags". 

In this case, you can upgrade the client version of docker yourself by either using an appropriate image or by downloading and installing the newer version as a build step.

Example image with dockerv20 client:

    - step:
        image: atlassian/pipelines-docker-daemon:v20-stable
        - docker
        - docker version

Example install of dockerv20 into any existing image (also works on default image):

    - step:
          - docker
          - curl -s -O
          - tar --extract --file=docker-20.10.5.tgz
          - ls -al ./docker
          - export PATH=./docker:$PATH
          - which docker
          - docker version

We already have a feature request to upgrade Docker client default from v19 to v20 as you can see here:

I would suggest that you add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. 

You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request. 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,

Hi Caroline,

Can you further elaborate in the "using an appropriate image" approach?
I'm using a custom alpine-based image which contains an updated version of docker-cli and then in a pipeline which looks something like this:

name: "<account>"

- step: &docker-test-version
name: Docker test version
- docker
- apk info docker-cli
- docker version
- which docker

The output shows this:

+ apk info docker-cli
WARNING: Ignoring No such file or directory

+ which docker

So even when using an image that comes with the Docker CLI updated to v20, Bitbucket Pipelines somehow overwrites the binary to a v19 one.

Hi, David. 

We used the image atlassian/pipelines-docker-daemon:v20-stable in the build Pipeline and we do see that client and server are both version 20. 

You informed you are using your own image that contains an updated version of docker. However, the docker version command gives the client version as 19.03.15 in the Pipeline. 

In this case, could you please run the image <account> locally and check the version of Docker client and server using the docker version command? 

Also, could you please share the Dockerfile used to create the image <account>

Thank you. 

Kind regards,
