Deploying a Container to GCP Cloud Run

Copy a working container and review the Dockerfile

git clone
cd network-automation/docker/flask2-sqlchemy
cat Dockerfile

Verify logged in to gcloud and set to correct project:

gcloud projects list
gcloud config set project <PROJECT_ID>

Where <PROJECT_ID> is the Project ID

Then build the container and upload the image to Google Container Registry. Note this step is missing from the quickstart guide

gcloud builds submit --tag<PROJECT_ID>/flask2-sqlalchemy .

Now pick a region and deploy the container. In this example ‘flask2’ is the service name:

gcloud config set run/region us-central1
gcloud run deploy flask2 --image<PROJECT_ID>/flask2-sqlalchemy --allow-unauthenticated
