Do not confuse this topic with external Epinio registries. These are where Epinio stashes the images of staged applications for its own use. See Setting Up An External Container Registry for more information.

Export destination registries on the other hand are where a user saves active applications to for pickup by and use with helm and other kubernetes tools.

It does not help that it is perfectly ok to configure the same registry both as external registry and as export target.

How to export applications to an OCI registry


epinio export-registries

to see the list of valid destinations.

Then invoke

epinio app export --registry destination appname

to perform the export.


Replace destination with the name of the desired target. Further replace appname with the name of the application to export.

As given above the command uses defaults for the names, versions, and tags of helm chart and container image. These are:

ComponentDefault NameDefault Version/Tag
Helm chart(namespace)-(appname)-chart0.0.0
Container image(namespace)-(appname)-image(stageID)

Use the command epinio app show (the-app-name) to see the stageID of the application.

All parts can be changed with the command flags

  • --chart-name
  • --chart-version
  • --image-name
  • --image-tag
