      Description

      Docker repositories may be accessed in four basic configurations:

      • Using the default URL we provide (doesn’t support push/pull with Docker)
      • Using the default URL or HTTP (when NX is behind a secure proxy)
      • Using the default URL or HTTPS (intended for a proxy-less scenario)
      • Using the default URL or HTTP or HTTPS

      We need to make these options more explicit in the UI. There are a few things we could do to make the UI clearer:

      • List every URL that a user can use to interact with a repository (not just the default URL)
      • Briefly describe how we expect each kind of URL to be used (supplemented by online docs)
      • Put the HTTP and HTTPS fields in an optional fieldset, to make it clear that you don’t need one to retrieve images from Nexus (in fact, the only reason you need HTTP or HTTPS is if you want to push/pull images to Nexus using the Docker CLI)
      • HTTPS is the preferred way of interacting with Nexus using the Docker CLI. Consider saying this in the help text, or selecting it by default (once the optional fieldset has been checked).
