How can a CICD system pull an image form a digitaloncean registry?

Can a system without doctl pull an image from a DO registry? If so what is used for the username / password combination? I ask because I’d like to pull using bitbucket pipelines. Thx.

The doctl integration is just a convenience. You can login to the registry without it. To do so, use a DigitalOcean API token for both the username and password:

docker login -u $DO_TOKEN -p $DO_TOKEN

Additionally, you can retrieve a .docker/config.json file that you can use with Docker using the API directly:

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer $DO_TOKEN" \
