Image Tagging Strategy

Depending on your scenario you might need a different update cadence for Docker dependencies.

We provide a few options by offering multiple Docker tags:

  • latest - Ideal for experimentation and proof-of-concepts, but not recommended for running production workloads.
  • {major}.{minor} - Representation of a specific feature set, but will be updated with feature & security patches.
  • {major}.{minor}.{patch} - Run a specific version of the runtime. _(Alternative could be to use image digest pinning)

Image Tagging Strategy

You can also pin to a specific digest of an image to ensure that you are running the same image across your infrastructure. However, you will not receive security patches unless you use a tool like Renovate to keep them up-to-date.
