Installer 2022-08.01 fails to pull element web into the cluster


  • After running the setup, the element web pod is stuck in ImagePullBackoff


  • Element Enterprise Installer 2022-08.01


It is necessary to uncomment and give any random value to the following variables in secret.yamlsecrets.yml :

dockerhub_token: anyvalue 

If you have a dockerhub_username and dockerhub_token, please define them in secrets.yml. If not, then please leave them blank but uncommented.

Root Cause

Version 2022-08.01 uses an element web image hosted in ems-image-store. A defect appeared during the migration of the image, and the installers looks for the variables dockerhub_username and dockerhub_token to know if it has to configure docker secrets into the cluster.

Once this secrets are given a value, the installer correctly uses ems_image_store_username and ems_image_store_token to configure the docker secret.
