To integrate your container image solution 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 solutions. You can enter solution 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 solution images via a staging repository (specified
during solution creation, with the prefix
gcr.io). You'll specify
which Container Registry tags you'd like to present in
Google Cloud Marketplace. When your solution is published, Google will copy the
specified images from your staging
gcr.io repository to the
marketplace.gcr.io repository, from which users will
download your container images.
Follow best practices
The following best practices are recommended for all solutions:
- Create Getting Started documentation
- Add User Support documentation
Review and launch
After you submit your solution, cloud-partner-eng will review your submission and work with you to resolve any issues before approving it. When the solution is approved, it will be launched within 15 minutes of approval.
