The following document lists the set of known issues in the JFrog Platform, including the version in which they were discovered, and the version in which they were fixed (if relevant). For JFrog Artifactory issues, click the issue ID for the details in JIRA.

Known issues are based on the following criteria:

  • Severity 1 critical issues
  • Breaking changes for upgrades
  • Issues that have caused downtime and restarts

How do Known Issues Affect Your System?

In this document, you will find the issues that met the criteria above and that were detected in a released version (only). When considering an upgrade to your system, we recommend that you review the Known Issues below (including the database schema issues that follow) to help you determine which is the right upgrade for your system.

ArtifactoryMDS migration causes the distributed_locks table to bloat during a 6.x to 7.x upgrade.


ArtifactoryUsing join key twice (in file and system.yaml) causes startup failures7.

ArtifactoryThe Conan repositories created in the Free Trial are broken in version 7.9.0:  Free Trial instances do not support Conan repositories; therefore, it is not possible to configure users using Conan repositories.

ArtifactoryArtifactory 7.8.0 does not start up after upgrading from Artifactory

ArtifactoryUnable to run Singleton type tasks, such as garbage collection. Singleton type tasks are marked with markers to decide if they can run and stop other tasks from running.


Because the addition of the "Allow Content browsing" in feature allowed stored XSS and phishing, an addition was made to version 6.23.16 to remove this potential security issue. However, this addition can lead to problems with accessing resources like XML, HTML due to the new CSP header  "Content-Security-Policy: sandbox".

ArtifactoryArtifactory failed to start after redeployment.

ArtifactoryArtifactory fails to start in Azure SAAS due to "FileNotFoundException: /home/artifactory/.postgresql/root.crt". Consistently affects both AOL and JCR editions in SAAS. This issue occurs when we perform a redeploy of a SaaS customer with a new version, and occurs only on Azure staging environments (as opposed to other cloud providers).
ArtifactorySetting the default system proxy also changes the existing remote repositories definition.
RTFACT-21838ArtifactoryNuget local repository may return an incorrect version when IsLatestVersion=true., 6.20.0, 6.19.1

Re-indexing a path on the metadata server will cause a connection leak and eventually a starvation of connections of the database connection pool, due to a query with a lazy AQL query with an unclosed result set.

Artifact search performance issue due to case-insensitivity.


From Artifactory 7.0.0, the "artifact search" via UI/API is case-insensitive by default. The case-insensitive search can be disabled by applying the following property:
