Creating the Artifactory Oracle Database
Supported Oracle Versions
Artifactory supports Oracle v10g and above.
You can choose between two configurations to set up your Oracle Database
ilesystemThis configuration stores metadata in Oracle Database and artifact binary data is stored on the file system (under
$JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/data/artifactory/filestore). This option has the advantage of being very lightweight on the Oracle database.
Full DBThis configuration stores both metadata and BLOBs in Oracle Database. This option requires minimal maintenance and allows you to rely solely on Oracle for failover and backup procedures, since all data is in the database.
When using this option, make sure you have created a table space big enough to accommodate your binaries.
Artifactory creates all tables automatically first time it is run. When performing a software upgrade Artifactory may have to alter tables and indices, so make sure you grant the configured connection the appropriate user permissions to perform such actions.
With both of the above options (
Full DB and DB-Filesystem), it is recommended to create a dedicated table space and use
Reclaiming BLOB space
For efficiency, Artifactory uses a checksum to ensure that only one copy of any binary data is stored, however, you may want to reclaim deleted BLOB space from time to time by shrinking the BLOB table space as follows:
Configuring Artifactory to use Oracle

Copy the libaio directory to the Artifactory tomcat lib directory, for example:
- Download the Oracle Instant Client lib.
- Extract the Oracle Instant Client and copy the
