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.
The Actions menu lets you execute basic functions on the selected instance as follows:
|Refreshes the view for the selected instance|
|Displays the Edit Instance screen for the selected instance where you can modify the instance's basic details.|
|Reconnects Mission Control with managed instances following an upgrade.|
|Removes the selected instance from Mission Control. Note that instance itself is not affected in any way; it is just not displayed in Mission Control|
Adding an Instance
To add an Artifactory instance to Mission Control, click the button on the top right of the Mission Control Instance Browser.
For full details of the process, please refer to the Getting Started Tutorial.
Editing an Instance
To edit an Artifactory instance, select it in the Instance Browser and click Edit in the Actions menu.
Update the instance details as described in the Adding an Artifactory Instance tutorial, and click "Save"
Displays general information about the Artifactory instance selected in the Instance Browser.
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.
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.
The License Tab provides information on the license with which the Artifactory instance is activated:
|The organization registered as owning the installed license|
|The date at which the license's validity will lapse.|
|Specifies if the license is Pro or Enterprise (HA)|
|A hash code of the license|
The HA tab provides information related to the HA configuration of the Artifactory instance
|The unique Artifactory server name|
|The fully qualified URL of the Artifactory server|
|The last time the server signaled that it is up and running.|
|The current state of the server.|
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.
