Summary0000070: rocky images in google cloud platform is created by rocky-linux-8-v20220126
DescriptionDescription of problem:

The image in google cloud platform of rocky linux (rocky-linux-8-v20220126) is "created by": rocky-linux-8-v20220126 instead of rocky or rocky-linux

If you compare this with others:
- ubuntu images are created by Canonical
- cenots-7 images are created by CentOS

This is problem because tools like packer use hard coded list of projects/"created by" to search for public available images. I want to ask packer to add rocky to list of images to search for. But if every images of rocky has a different Creator this is not possible.

Hi Rens,

Thanks for your report. It appears that there was a recent commit [1] to the GoogleCompute packer plugin which added Rocky Linux in. I believe this patch should resolve the issues you are having.

Can you confirm you're running the most recent version of the plugin?

Thanks, that works.

Was running latest version of packer. But they moved logic for gcp to a plugin.
And to use that i had to convert from the json syntax to HCL syntax.
But i can confirm. that rocky works with packer if you use:

 packer-plugin-googlecompute version v1.0.10

Still think that would look nicer if packer images where created by rocky-linux instead of rocky-linux-8-v20220126. but everything works for me.

Thanks for the help

I'd be happy to pass some feedback over to the google team who is responsible for the image builds (they actually happen through some Google open source build/test software), but my understanding from them is that Terraform/other tools are supposed to act as a translation layer between these.

That said, would you be able to share a sample terraform config so I can see what you're seeing w.r.t. the naming conventions?

I am commenting on the naming convention of the "create by" collum of the image in gcp.
I have attached 2 screenshots about what i mean:

Most images have "created by" field with the name of the organization that created the distribution. such as Debian, Microsoft, google. Canonical

But the image rocky-linux-8-v20220126 is "created by" rocky-linux-8-v20220126
