Will Balena be able to access the photos on https://hub.docker.com?

In order to establish a balena service,

version: "2.1"

    image: connectedhomeip/otbr:sve2
    restart: always
    network_mode: host
    privileged: true
      - "/dev/ttyACM0:/dev/radio"
      - NAT64=1
      - DNS64=0
      - WEB_GUI=0
    entrypoint: ["/app/etc/docker/docker_entrypoint.sh"]
    command:  [ "--radio-url", "spinel+hdlc+uart:///dev/radio?uart-baudrate=115200", "-B", "eth0" ]
      io.balena.features.balena-socket: '1'
      io.balena.features.kernel-modules: '1'
      io.balena.features.firmware: '1'
      io.balena.features.dbus: '1'
      io.balena.features.sysfs: '1'
      io.balena.features.procfs: '1'
      io.balena.features.journal-logs: '1'
      io.balena.features.supervisor-api: '1'
      io.balena.features.balena-api: '1'
      io.balena.update.strategy: download-then-kill
      io.balena.update.handover-timeout: ''

However, I want to know if Balena can download photos from https://hub.docker.com.

I’m thinking whether the problem is that a “balena push” currently works OK but fails to start the service because it can’t actually pull the image.

We much appreciate any assistance.


Hello, if the image is available in a publicly accessible registry (as that image seems to be) it should be able to be pulled. If balena push completes without errors (displays the ascii unicorn) then it means the image should have been pulled. Is the new release showing up on your device(s)? Does the “otbr-chip” service show up on the dashboard, and if so, what is the status?

Hi @mani0525,
We just wanted to check back in with you to see if you saw Alan’s response? Were you able to get the photo pulled from DockerHub?

No, Balena (formerly known as Resin.io) will not be able to directly access the photos on https://hub.docker.com. Balena is a platform that focuses on deploying and managing containerized applications on embedded devices or IoT (Internet of Things) devices.

Docker Hub (https://hub.docker.com) is a registry where developers can publish and share Docker container images. It primarily serves as a repository for storing and distributing Docker images rather than a file storage or photo-sharing platform.
