Instance Browser

The Instance Browser displays a list of all Artifactory instances managed by Mission Control . Selecting any of the Artifactory instances displays its corresponding information tabs described in the sections below.

Repositories Tab

The Repositories tab displays a full list of repositories in the selected Artifactory instance, and provides information on the type and number of artifacts in each repository.

To help you find a repository, you can just type its name in the filter field above the list.

Repositories Tab

Connections Tab

The connections tab provides a pictorial indication of the workflow  between Artifactory instances under your control by displaying the connections that repositories of the selected Artifactory instance have with repositories of other Artifactory instances.

In the context of Mission Control, a "connection" is either a replication or a remote proxy.

 

In the example above, the Connections tab shows that in the Artifactory instance named "cluster-124-10400":

  • the repository named "my-multi-push-replication-repo" has multipush replication configured to three other instances
  • the repository named "ddd" is a remote proxy to the "LocalMultipReplication1" on instance "cluster-124-10100", and also pull replicates that repository

System Info Tab

The System Info tab displays the full set of system properties and environment variables for the selected Artifactory instance.

System Info Tab

The License Tab provides information on the license with which the Artifactory instance is activated:

Creating a New Instance

When you create a new Artifactory instance in Mission Control, what you are actually doing is adding an existing, running instance of Artifactory to the list of instances that can be managed by Mission Control. 

A new instance can be created from the MC Instance Browser in the View module and the process is fully described in the Adding an Artifactory Instance tutorial.
