"unauthorized: authentication required" image to large?

Posted June 5, 2021 55 views

I am trying to push a 4GB image. I chose a subscription for 100GB storage. Every attempt fails and ends with this error: “unauthorized: authentication required”. When I push a smaller image (about 50 MB) then the push succeeds. What could be wrong?

Hi @scholvincent,

I take it you are using DigitalOcean’s Spaces, correct? . You’ll want to use the S3 API and multipart upload for large files. If I’m not mistaken, the max size is 50TB
