The AWS Container Marketplace offers an alternative Docker image to the official JFrog Artifactory Docker image. The Marketplace image is identical to the official JFrog Artifactory Docker image, but does not start up with the default credentials (admin:password).  Instead; the user must get or set the first time password.


  • An active AWS subscription
  • An Artifactory Pro (or higher) license
  • Docker (or service capable of deploying Docker images)

Setting up the AWS Container Marketplace

  1. Subscribe to the listing.
  2. Navigate to Continue to configuration | Continue to launchView container image details.
  3. Follow the login instructions and perform a pull of the image.
  4. Configure the image as you would configure the official JFrog Docker image (with a different image name).
  5. Run the image and get or set the first time password.

Setting the Password for the First Time

Amazon AWS Container Marketplace does not allow default passwords. You must provide a password during container initialization or one will be randomly generated. 

To set the first time initialization password for the 'admin' user, pass the environment variable ARTIFACTORY_PASSWORD with the desired password.


docker run ... --env ARTIFACTORY_PASSWORD=my-new-password <image-url>

If no initialization password is provided, one will be generated and printed to the logs. 

To get the randomly generated password, look at the first few lines of the Docker container logs.


docker logs <container-id> | head -n 10
INFO: Since ARTIFACTORY_PASSWORD environment is not set. We are generating our own random password.
Generated ARTIFACTORY_PASSWORD is Ieqo868W99SBY5cqzx

This password is only valid for the initial setup and should then be changed via the UI or REST API.

Upgrading Artifactory in the AWS Container Marketplace

Follow the official Docker to Docker upgrade procedure, using a different  image name/source.
