Docker 'latest' image tag won't trigger CloudFormation deployment


#1

We are using CloudFormation to deploy/upgrade Redash. In our script, we specify the Redash Docker tag, and commit the change to VCS. This triggers a deployment of the service. However, we have had to rely on the beta tags, since the stable release number is masked by the ‘latest’ tag. Please consider also publishing Docker images tagged with the stable release version.

Edit: I marked this as a feature request, since it is a change to the packaging process.


#2

Starting from v5, we have tags for each release:

You should definitely use those tags instead of latest in your CFN templates.


List of available Redash image references?

Ah, those looked like beta tags, because of the b in the version string. I guess it is the build. Thanks again for clarifying @arikfr

It’s b for build indeed :slight_smile:
