The Filtered Resources Add-on (introduced in Artifactory version 2.3.3) allows treating any textual file as a filtered resource by processing it as a FreeMarker template.

This feature is extremely powerful and flexible since Artifactory provides some of its own API to the filtering context (see below), allowing you to create and provision dynamic content, based on information stored in Artifactory.
For example, you can provision different content base on the user originating IP address or based on changing property values attached to the artifact.
