NAME

       docker-login - Log in to a Docker registry

SYNOPSIS

       docker login [OPTIONS] [SERVER]

DESCRIPTION

       Log in to a Docker Registry located on the specified SERVER.  You can specify a URL or a
       hostname for the SERVER value. If you do not specify a SERVER, the command uses Docker's
       public registry located at https://registry-1.docker.io/ by default.  To get a
       username/password for Docker's public registry, create an account on Docker Hub.

       docker login requires user to use sudo or be root, except when:

                1. connecting to  a remote daemon, such as a docker-machine provisioned docker
                   engine.

                2. user is added to the docker group.  This will impact the security of your
                   system; the docker group is root equivalent.  See Docker Daemon Attack Surface
                   ⟨https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/security/#/docker-daemon-attack-
                   surface⟩ for details.

       You can log into any public or private repository for which you have credentials.  When
       you log in, the command stores encoded credentials in $HOME/.docker/config.json on Linux
       or %USERPROFILE%/.docker/config.json on Windows.
