How do I set up my Google Registry to work with Serverless Containers?

Setting up a Google registry:

Some extra steps are needed on the Google side to add your Google registry to our platform.
Below you will find the steps needed to set this up.

We can support both options, but there are a few points to take into account.

Follow red for Google Cloud Registry (GCR)
Follow blue for Google Artifact Registry (GAR)
Or both, to support them both.
