Offering container image products

To integrate your container image product with Google Cloud Marketplace, you'll need to provide us with a few key deliverables and do some setup tasks even before you start, such as:

Note that you will need to request access to these documents.

After you send us the above information, we'll give you access to Partner Portal, which you will use in the next step, technical integration.

Overview of technical integration

As a partner, you can use Partner Portal to create Google Cloud Marketplace products. You can enter product details, configure what images are shown, and preview how your listing will appear in Google Cloud Marketplace.

Users will pull container images from a Google-owned container registry repository, marketplace.gcr.io/YOUR-PARTNER-PUBLISHED-NAME/YOUR-PRODUCT-PUBLISHED-NAME. You'll provide Google product images via a staging repository (specified during product creation, with the prefix gcr.io). You'll specify which Container Registry tags you'd like to present in Google Cloud Marketplace. When your product is published, Google copies the specified images from your staging gcr.io repository to the official marketplace.gcr.io repository, from which users will download your container images.

Best practices for container image products

The following best practices are recommended for all products:

  • Create Getting Started documentation
  • Add User Support documentation

Reviewing and launching

After you submit your product, cloud-partner-eng will review your submission and work with you to resolve any issues before approving it. When the product is approved, it is launched within 15 minutes of approval.
