Google Artifact - Validating image manifest befor pull

Hi folks, a question regarding the google artifact registry. One of the use cases I have is to validate the image manifest before pulling the image from the registry. Does anyone know if there is a way to only pull the docker image manifest instead of the entire image through the artifact registry? I read through the documentation of both gcloud cli and sdk (in Go) but I do not think they offer this option. In AWS, there is a cli command batch-get-image that allows to only retrieving the image manifest, do we have something equivalent for the artifact registry?

Did you look at trying the Docker Registry API:

That helps, thank you!
