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:
- Provide your completed open source compliance document.
- Create a project.
- Complete the Project Info form that the Google Cloud Marketplace team sends you.
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
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
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.
