Artifactory 7.5

Released: May 19, 2020

Artifactory 7.5 is Available as a Cloud Version

The Artifactory 7.5 release is currently available only as a Cloud version, and will be available for on-premise shortly.


Artifactory Cloud with CDN Distribution

Artifactory Cloud Enterprise and Enterprise+ supports a fully integrated advanced CDN solution removing the need to deal with the complexity of setting up a separate external CDN Caching system. JFrog Artifactory Cloud with Amazon's CloudFront CDN solution allows you to manage, control, and distribute high volumes of software distribution across multiple locations.

The CDN solution provided in Artifactory Cloud supports distributing public content via Anonymous Access and Signed URLs, distributing private content using fine-grained permissions and Access Tokens, CNAME/SSL support, and setting IP Whitelisting and Geo Restrictions. To view the list of CDN features supported by the different JFrog subscription types, see Cloud Pricing.

From version 7.5, CDN Distribution is enabled by default for Artifactory Cloud Enterprise and Artifactory Cloud Enterprise+ users and all is that is required is to set CDN support on your repository level. For more information, see Get Started: Cloud.

Support for Signed URLs

Artifactory now supports using signed URLs. Users with administrator or manage permission can generate a signed URL that provides temporary shared access to a specific artifact, using the Create Signed URL REST API. Using the Replace Signed URL Key REST API, administrators can replace the key for signing and validating signed URLs, invalidating any signed URLs previously created. This feature is supported for Artifactory Cloud Enterprise and Enterprise+ users.

Xray Block Unscanned Artifacts Timeout Policy 

This version includes the capability to define the timeout policy for unscanned artifact download requests. This means that when a block unscanned artifacts policy is configured in Xray, Artifactory will wait for the predefined time of the policy, to allow Xray to perform the required scan. This will prevent download request failures that require Xray scan on the artifacts.

In addition, to improve artifact download performance, Artifactory will now only request Xray scans results for repositories configured with block download policy.

Configurations are available here.

** Available with Artifactory version 7.5.x and Xray version 3.4.x.

Support for RHEL 8 AppStream

Artifactory now supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 which contains support for enhanced Yum metadata for AppStream (RHEL8) or Modularity (Fedora) technology used in RHEL8. An example of this new metadata includes the data type=modules metadata from repomd.xml. The Content in AppStream in RPM is available in one of two formats - the familiar RPM format and an extension to the RPM format called Modules. 

As part of the AppStream support in Artifactory, you can:

  • Proxy AppStream modules through a remote RPM repository.
  • Host and serve AppStream modules according to profiles and streams through a local RPM repository.
  • Serve local and remote content through a virtual repository.

For more information, see Deploying RPM Modules to Your Local Repository.

Feature Enhancements

Upgraded Tomcat Version

The Tomcat bundled with Artifactory has been upgraded to version 8.5.54. 

In this upgrade, the HTTP date headers issue that existed in Artifactory 7.3.2 and 7.4.0 (that were bundled with Tomcat 8.5.51) was fixed. 

Generate Maven POM File from Internal Jar or a Default POM File REST API

You can now generate a Maven POM file using the Artifactory REST API. To use the POM within the artifact, you can deploy an existing POM, or generate a default POM. Previously available only through the UI, Deploying Maven Artifacts

Resolved Issues

JIRA Issue



Fixed an issue whereby, when authenticating a Docker or Conan Packages login with a username and API key of an LDAP user, Artifactory always checked against the LDAP service, even if it was in the cache period.


Fixed an issue whereby, when using HTTP SSO and the anonymous mode was enabled, non-cookie-cached requests resulted in a 401 error if an anonymous request was sent beforehand. 


Fixed an issue whereby, when event-based pull replication was enabled for a large number of repositories, the target server reached a thread pool exhaustion. 


Fixed an issue whereby, in Docker repositories, pushing a container using several clients such as containers, did not work properly.

RTFACT-20761Fixed an issue whereby, proxying and caching npm packages from GitHub Packages resulted in an error.


Fixed an issue whereby, in several remote npm repositories, running an npm search that did not return any results and therefore these search requests did not close, caused a pool leak. 

RTFACT-20216Fixed an issue whereby, in some cases, in Conan smart remote repositories, the pull replication from a distant Artifactory instance did not pull packages from the source Artifactory instance.


Fixed an issue whereby, in a Debian client, when using your own GPG keys, the initial GPG verification failed when resolving packages from a Debian virtual repository. 


Fixed an issue whereby, in a Debian local repository, when running recalculate index to create a Release metadata file, the Component property in the Release file was missing the text before the hyphen in the name of the component. Example: acpu-base appeared just as base. 


Fixed an issue whereby, when trying to resolve packages from a PyPI remote repository that is connected to a pypiserver, the download did not work due to a malformed download URL.
RTFACT-20544Fixed an issue whereby, in CRAN remote repositories, downloading and deploying CRAN packages with versions that contained more than 4 octets (e.g. 0.9.800.1.0) failed.
RTFACT-21319Fixed an issue whereby, in CRAN virtual repositories, when trying to resolve packages, the updated packages were not available until the aggregated CRAN remote repository updated its' metadata. 

For a complete list of changes, please refer to our JIRA Release Notes

Artifactory 7.4

Released: April 6, 2020

Artifactory 7.4 is Available as a Cloud Version

The Artifactory 7.4 release is available only as a Cloud version.


Go Private GitHub Repositories Support

It is now possible to create a remote Go repository and proxy Go modules from GitHub private repositories.

Additional information on how to configure Artifactory and your Go client to work with GitHub private repositories can be found here.

Conda v2 Format

Artifactory now supports the Conda v2 metadata format. You can now use Conda clients from version 4.7, and download/upload Conda v2 format packages from all repository types (local, remote and virtual).

As part of this change, Artifactory now supports the .conda file extension to compress packages more effectively and the current_repodata.json file that makes packages search faster. 

Create Admin Access Tokens from within the UI

Administrators can now generate admin-scoped access tokens, for any of the services in the JFrog Platform directly from the UI. This is available from the administration module, Identity and Access | Access Tokens screen | Generate Admin Token. Previously available only as a REST API.

Google Cloud Platform Binary Provider Native Client Support

This release introduces support for the Google Storage native client binary provider, providing improved security using unique private keys.

To opt-in and use the new Google Cloud Storage template, see here.

Feature Enhancements

Improved AQL Performance with MSSQL DB

Significant performance improvement for AQL queries when searching artifacts according to build name and number.

Docker Installation Includes Upgraded OpenJDK Version 11.0.6

The OpenJDK version that is bundled with the Artifactory Docker image was upgraded to OpenJDK 11.0.6.

Debian InRelease

Added support for Debian InRelease metadata files. Artifactory will now produce an InRelease metadata file in the repository when working with GPG signing. Downloading a Debian package from Artifactory will now be faster as the client will only download the InRelease file without downloading the Release and Release.gpg files that are heavier.

Resolved Issues

JIRA Issue


RTFACT-19530Improved the performance for the Promote Docker Image API.
RTFACT-19381Fixed an issue in which the RPM group settings would not be returned when using the Get Repository Configuration API.

RTFACT-8966Fixed an issue in Ruby Gems repositories in which downloading packages (e.g. sidekiq-pro) from a remote repository that points to would fail.


Fixed an issue in NuGet repositories in which virtual repositories indexes would include extra unnecessary pages that would slow packages installation in some cases. This will now improve performance for NuGet virtual repositories.

For a complete list of changes, please refer to our JIRA Release Notes

Artifactory 7.4.1

Released: 14 April, 2020

Feature Enhancements

Reverted Tomcat Version to 8.5.41

The Tomcat version previously bundled in Artifactory 7.3.2 and 7.4.0 has been reverted back to Tomcat 8.5.41 due to an issue found in Tomcat version 8.5.51. 

Just a bit of background, Tomcat was previously upgraded to version 8.5.51. Due to a known issue in Tomcat 8.5.51, Artifactory may return HTTP date headers (Date, Last-Modified) in a timezone that is different than GMT. See more details here

This applies only if you are using clients that make use of the "If-Modified-Since" request header in the request to Artifactory, therefore validate that dates are sent in GMT format (according to the HTTP spec mandates).

If your clients send dates in a timezone that is different than GMT format and you are using Artifactory 7.3.2, we recommend upgrading to this version. 

An Artifactory version containing an upgraded Tomcat version will be released once making sure the aforementioned issue no longer affects Artifactory.

Setting SSL/TLS for the Artifactory Tomcat Connector via Artifactory system YAML File 

You can now enable SSL/TLS for the Artifactory Tomcat connector directly in the Artifactory System YAML file. For more information, see Artifactory Operational Microservices.

Added Support for Docker Upgrades from Legacy Artifactory Versions

You can upgrade JFrog Artifactory using Docker from Artifactory version 6.x to 7.x or from 7.x to 7.x.

Issues Resolved 

  1. Improved performance when running Interactive Installers.
  2. Fixed an issue whereby stopping a service using the artifactoryctl stop command failed in the first attempt if the pidof command did not exist on the installed server.

Artifactory 7.4.3

Released Date: 27 April, 2020

Resolved Issues

JIRA Issue


RTFACT-21835 Fixed an issue, whereby upgrading from Artifactory 6.19.0 to 7.4.1 failed.

Fixed an issue relevant to NuGet virtual repositories whereby, Artifactory only served the first 80 versions of a NuGet package containing more than 80 versions, while local and remote NuGet repositories returned all of the versions for the package.  


Fixed a permission issue in Docker and NuGet repositories for virtual repositories that aggregated local and remote repositories. If a user had permissions only on a number of the aggregated repositories and tried to download a package from the virtual repository, he would receive an error Unauthorized error message.

For a complete list of changes, please refer to our JIRA Release Notes

Artifactory 7.3

Released: 23 March, 2020

Artifactory 7.3 is Available as a Cloud Version

The Artifactory 7.3 release is available only as a Cloud version. Artifactory 7.3.2 applies to on-prem and contains all the resolved issues in Artifactory 7.3.0 and 7.3.1.


PAT (Personal Access Token) Support for Remote Repository Authentication

In addition to the basic authentication, with username and password, Artifactory now supports remote repository authentication using Personal Access Tokens (PAT). The big advantage of using PATs is that you can strengthen your Artifactory security practices by using Access Tokens for authentication instead of using your primary credentials. For example, you can configure your remote Docker repository to point to GitHub and authenticate it by using a PAT. You can use PATs for any package type. For more information, see Remote Credentials.

LDAP Improvements

Artifactory now supports a new type of Active Directory "Nested Groups" search, enabling performance improvements when working with LDAP. This feature requires that Active Directory runs on Windows Server 2012 R2 version or later. There are no additional requirements for the Active Directory Windows Server side. For more information, see Support for Nested Groups.

Write-disabled Mode Supported for Shard Storage Requests

To enhance storage sharding, Artifactory now supports disabling write-requests to shards.
This is useful, for example, when migrating data from a shard that must be replaced. First, the feature is used to write-disable the shard and then the data is migrated to a new shard.
In addition, the feature still allows garbage collection to continue to clean the deleted binaries from the write-disabled shard.

To set the write-disable mode on a shard in Artifactory, see the Configuring State-Aware Binary Provider section.

Support for Matrix-params with Conan Repositories
Artifactory now supports matrix parameters for Conan repositories. As a result, the Build Info for Conan packages uploaded to Artifactory SaaS is now available.

Feature Enhancements 

Restricting System and Repository Imports

Artifactory allows admin users to import and export data at both the system level and the repository level. For more information, see the Importing and Exporting section.

Sometimes, however, it is advantageous to restrict imports to avoid causing undesirable results. With this new feature, the system and repository import options can be disabled, thereby preventing specific admin users in the enterprise from performing imports. For example, you can stop an admin from overriding the Release Bundles distributed to an Artifactory Edge, by preventing him from importing the initial Artifactory state. For more information, see Importing and Exporting.

Resolved Issues

JIRA Issue


Fixed an issue where Artifactory did not start as a service on RedHat 7.7 and Centos 7.7 when upgrading Artifactory from versions earlier than 6.14.0. 

Fixed an issue where Docker Image failed to start with Oracle DB because Artifactory's Docker entry point could not get the endpoint of the external Oracle DB. 


Fixed an issue where, even if the user had Deploy Permissions for the default deployment repository in the virtual repository, Set Me Up would incorrectly issue the following warning message:
You do not have deploy permissions to this repository.

Fixed an issue whereby in some cases of a load-balanced remote repository, where two nodes are out-of-sync, a conflict between the metadata of a file and the contents of the file might result.
Fixed an issue where pulling an image from a smart remote Docker repository always causes it to pull the manifest.json file from the source Artifactory. This behavior would cause a failure if the Artifactory source instance was not reachable.

Fixed an issue where, after a pull replication was executed from a Docker smart remote repository, which was pointing to a Docker remote repository that in turn was pointing to a Docker Hub, Artifactory was not able to serve the artifacts from the local cache when the Docker smart remote repository was set to offline mode.

Fixed an issue where the latest npm package was always being determined by the publish date, regardless of the artifactory.npm.tag.tagLatestByPublish system property value.
Artifactory now supports the new Maven XML tag attributes that were introduced with Maven 3.6.x.

The Go remote GitHub repository can now resolve both incompatible and compatible Go Module v2+ project version formats.

Fixed an issue where the checksum for a Go module that was directly resolved from GitHub differed from the checksum when the module was resolved from or
Fixed an issue where Debian packages that did not contain control files would cause metadata resolution to fail when the $ apt update command was invoked.
Fixed an issue that resulted in Artifactory generating incorrect metadata for some CRAN package types. 
Fixed an issue whereby viewing Docker images stored in a remote-cache displayed a hash symbol instead of a tag.
Fixed an issue whereby the port used for Artifactory authentication in Artifactory 7 (8082) differed to Artifactory 6.0 (8081) causing backward compatibility to fail. 
Fixed an issue whereby upgrading to Artifactory 7.x caused the internal Hostname to be set to Artifactory instead of being configured as the IP address of the Artifactory server. 
Fixed an issue whereby the SHA256SUMS file was not tracked as an IDK in Debian Remote repositories. 

Fixed an issue whereby PyPI redirections did not recognize the value of the X-JFrog-Override-Base-Url header. 

Fixed an issue whereby users (that are not defined as admins) in any group defined as an Admin group could not generate Join Keys. 
Fixed an issue whereby indexing Helm Charts failed during high concurrent indexing. 
Fixed an issue whereby, hijacked sessions caused a memory leak in the JFrog Router service.

Artifactory 7.3.2

Released: 23 March, 2020

Tomcat Breaking Change

The Tomcat bundled with Artifactory has been upgraded to version 8.5.51 which introduces a change that might affect your Artifactory instance. 

HTTP Date Headers

Due to a known issue in Tomcat 8.5.51, Artifactory may return HTTP date headers (Date, Last-Modified) in a timezone that is different than GMT. See more details here.
If you are using clients that make use of the "If-Modified-Since" request header in the request to Artifactory, you need to make sure that dates are sent in GMT format (as the HTTP spec mandates).

If the clients that you use send dates in GMT format, this change will not affect you. 

Feature Enhancement

Upgraded Tomcat Version in JFrog Artifactory

The Tomcat bundled with Artifactory has been upgraded to version 8.5.51.

Issues Resolved

JIRA IssueDescription

Fixed an issue whereby under certain circumstances, authenticated users were able to:
