AWS CodeBuild now allows you to use Docker images stored in another AWS account as your build environment. Previously, you couldn’t access Docker images stored in Amazon ECR in one account and use them as the build environment across all your accounts, making it difficult to automate.

You can now access Docker images stored in an Amazon ECR repository across your accounts by granting resource level permissions. In the AWS CodeBuild project, these permissions are specified in the service role, making it easy for you to manage the fine-grained repository level access.

To learn more about using cross-account Amazon ECR images with AWS CodeBuild, visit our documentation. To learn more about how to get started with CodeBuild, visit our product page or the CodeBuild console.
