This image is designed to supersede the legacy CircleCI Redis image,
cimg/redis is a Docker image created by CircleCI with continuous integration builds in mind.
This image can be used with the CircleCI
docker executor as a secondary image.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7jobs: build: docker: - image: cimg/go:1.17 - image: cimg/redis:6.2.6 steps: - checkout
In the above example, the CircleCI Go Docker image is used for the primary container while the Redis image is used as a secondary.
More specifically, the tag
6.2.6 is used meaning the version of Redis will be v6.2.6.
You can now connect to a Redis instance from the primary image within the steps for this job.
This image contains the Redis database and its complete toolchain.
This image has the following tagging scheme:
<redis-version> - The version of Redis to use.
