Your Authorization Token has expired when trying to push to ECS docker repository

The Error

denied: Your Authorization Token has expired. Please run 'aws ecr get-login' to fetch a new one.

This is just for storing the command below. Every time I want to do a docker push to my ECS repo, I need get the denied error if I’m working in the wrong region. You must run the get-login command for the region your repo is in. Also, don’t forget to copy and run the command that’s returned, it does not run automatically.

The Fix

aws ecr get-login --region us-west-2

Login using the –region tag, changing the region to the region your docker repo is in.

Thanks but that’s not fully useful
1) It’s best to set the region on your ~/.aws/config file:
[default]
region=REGION
output=json
2) “Also, don’t forget to copy and run the command that’s returned, it does not run automatically.” -> simply use $() around the command:
$(aws ecr get-login)
