Docker is one of the most widely used open source platform that enables developers to package applications into containers. Containers are nothing but a standard unit of software that packages up the code and all its dependencies. This helps the application to run quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.
A Docker image contains a set of instructions in a file that can be used to execute code in a Docker container. Mostly after creating a docker image when we try to push the image into our repository this type of error occurs “Docker denied: requested access to the resource is denied”
Why this error occurs?
As the error says requested access to the resource is denied error, you as a docker user do not have the correct rights/permission to run the docker push or any other docker command. Or your docker hub credentials are incorrect.
How to resolve :

Again login using,
In some cases, this solution might work.
Solution 2: If still, you are getting this error after trying solution 1 you have to follow this solution which will clear the error.
First, after your login you have to tag your image before pushing:
docker tag image_name YOUR_DOCKERHUB_NAME/image_name
then, you have to push it.
docker push YOUR_DOCKERHUB_NAME/image_name
After doing this you will be able to push your docker image into your repository and the error will be gone.
Conclusion: In this tutorial, we have seen about “Docker denied: requested access to the resource is denied” error which can be solved using the above-mentioned solutions. We have to remember that before pushing the docker image into the repository we have to tag our image and try to push the image into the repository.
