Skaffold Troubleshooting

Push Setup

If the skaffold run command fails because it does not have permissions to push a Docker image, it may be trying to push to the Docker hub. The reported image name will be something like

When running on Minikube, Skaffold assumes that a push is not required, because it can docker build directly to the Docker machine. If it is attempting to push to Docker Hub, it is because Skaffold thinks it is not running on Minikube. Make sure your Minikube context is named minikube.

An alternate solution is to modify the Docker build in skaffold.yaml and set the value of the local.push key to false. For more information, see the Skaffold documentation.

Logging Verbosity

Skaffold provides different levels of debug logging information. When you encounter issues deploying the platform with Skaffold, you can set the logging verbosity to display more messages. The additional messages might help you identify problems.

For example:

$ cd /path/to/forgeops
$ skaffold dev -v debug
