Google Container Registry

GCRAccessToken creates a GCP Access token that can be used to authenticate with GCR in order to pull OCI images. You won't need any extra permissions to request for a token, but the token would only work against a GCR if the token requester (service Account or WI) has the appropriate access

You must specify the spec.projectID in which GCR is located.

Output Keys and Values

Key Description
username username for the docker login command.
password password for the docker login command.
expiry time when token expires in UNIX time (seconds since January 1, 1970 UTC).
