Released January 18, 2017
JFrog Xray takes an active role in your CI/CD pipeline to indicate you should fail build jobs if your build or any of its dependencies have vulnerabilities. Your CI server (currently, Jenkins CI is supported) can now send a request to Xray to scan a build that was uploaded to Artifactory. In accordance with Watches you may define, Xray will scan the build, and if vulnerabilities that trigger an alert are found, Xray can now respond to the inquiring CI server that the build job should fail.
- Fail build jobs according to Watch specifications if build artifacts or their dependencies contain vulnerabilities.
- Changes in the UI for Watches replacing "Notifications" with "Actions", and the addition of the Fail Build Job action to support CI/CD integration
- "All Builds" has been added a new target type for watches so you can specify that all builds uploaded to Artifactory are scanned by Xray, not only specific builds you configure into the Watch.
Released January 25, 2017
- An issue that was causing artifact indexing to fail has been fixed.
Released February 12, 2017
Preventing Brute Force Attacks
Xray has been equipped with a login protocol to prevent brute force attacks. When Xray encounters multiple login attempts by the same user, Xray steadily increases the time interval that the user must wait before attempting login again. After a specific number of failed login attempts, the user will be locked out of his account. At that point, login can only be reset by an Xray administrator. The administrator has full control over the number of failed login attempts to lock the user out.
An Xray administrator may now view the Xray system log file in the Admin module, with the ability to filter log messages from the different services behind Xray.
- A bug preventing Xray from reaching the global database server when a proxy server is configured was fixed.
- Performance when synchronizing the global database to Xray has been greatly improved. The overall process time is dramatically reduced, both for a first-time synchronization, and for periodic updates.
- A mechanism has been added to prevent brute force attacks on Xray by locking out users with multiple failed login attempts.
- A bug that prevented upgrade when the upgrade archive was extracted in the same folder as the previous version, has been fixed.
- The impact path of an artifact is now displayed as a full path including the Artifactory instance and the repository in which the impacted artifact is hosted.
- The Xray log can now be viewed by an administrator in the Admin module System Logs page.
Released March 7, 2017
- Xray's analysis process performance has been greatly improved
- Performance when generating a security report has been greatly improved, especially for Xray instances that have indexed thousands of artifacts.

Dependency Graph APIs
JFrog Xray exposes its dependency graphs to any external source with access to its REST APIs. Through a simple REST API call, you can now receive the full dependency graph of any component or build as a JSON object, or compare the dependency graphs of any two components or builds to get a clear indication of the differences between them and easily hone in on new dependencies that may have introduced issues and vulnerabilities.
Editing System Watches
System watches are created when a repository in Artifactory has been configured to block downloads. To provide more flexibility and finer control over when alerts should be generated, system watches can now be edited by Xray admin users.
Handling components with unknown licenses is a matter of your organization's policy. Xray now allows you to specify if these components should trigger alerts or not.
- Dependency Graph APIs allowing you to get the graph of any artifact or build, and compare any two artifacts or builds.
- System watches can now be edited by Admin users.
- Allowed and Banned License filters now allow you to specify "Unknown" so you can decide if components with unknown licenses should trigger alerts or not.

Support for Older Versions of Artifactory
JFrog Xray now supports all versions of JFrog Artifactory from v4.0 and above
Synchronization with the Global Database Server
Previously, Xray would synchronize with the global database server automatically at set time intervals. To give you more control over usage of your system resources, you can now manually invoke initial synchronization and update with the global database server, and pause/resume synchronization if necessary.
Support for Non-Docker Installation
In addition to Docker, JFrog Xray is now available for installation in a variety of flavors including Ubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat, and Debian.
Support Download Blocking
JFrog Xray will annotate artifacts that have been identified with an issue in any connected instance of JFrog Artifactory so that the Artifactory administrator may block download of that artifact.
Integration with Aqua
If you have an account with Aqua, this integration lets you enable their feed as a source for alerts using your Aqua API key.
OSS License Policy
You may now implement an OSS license policy by defining a filter for watches based on a whitelist or blacklist of OSS licenses. Any component in the system that does not pass through the filter you define will generate an alert.
- Support for older versions of Artifactory - v4.0 and above
- Visibility and control over resources with synchronizing with the global database server
- Support for Linux installations
- Support download blocking

August 1, 2016
JFrog is proud to the first official release JFrog Xray 1.0. This version presents dramatic changes based on feedback recieved from customers using the previous "Preview" version released several weeks ago.
The entire onboarding process to get started with Xray is done within Xray. This includes adding Artifactory instances, specifying repositories for indexing, triggering indexing and getting status on the indexing process.
Watches and alerts now aggregate all types of analysis performed. You simply define the context you are interested in for a Watch (repository, build or all artifacts), and view aggregated information on issues detected and artifacts impacted in the resulting alert.
Focusing on the most relevant issues and alerts
You can now choose to ignore alerts or issues that have been resolved or are not interesting to you either for a specific alert instance or permanently.
While JFrog Xray comes preconfigured with a database of issues and affected software artifacts, it is also open to integration with additional vulnerability providers. This version comes with the ability to add Whitesource, a simple but powerful open source security and license management solution.
Manually Invoking a Scan
A new Watch will only apply to new Artifacts or issues that arise after it has been created. This version adds the ability to run an analysis manually and apply a new Watch on existing artiafcts and issues.
- Easy onboarding
- Unified analysis with Watches.
- Focusing on important issues using "ignore" rules.
- Integration with Whitesource.
- Manually invoking a scan.
- View all alerts or only those based on watches you defined.
- Support for an HTTP proxy to communicate with external networks.
August 11, 2016
This is a minor update that fixes an issue with indexing and adds a limitation on the storage Xray consumes.
- Fixed an issue that caused the indexing process to be terminated in certain cases.
- Xray now limits the storage it utilizes when downloading artifacts for indexing.
July 3, 2016
JFrog is proud to release JFrog Xray!
JFrog Xray performs universal artifact analysis, recursively scanning all layers of your binary packages to provide radical transparency and unparalleled insight into your software architecture. JFrog Xray works with most package formats and is fully integrated with JFrog Artifactory.
The Home screen is your dashboard where you can monitor Artifactory instance Xray are connected to, component graphs and alerts.
Watches monitor artifacts for issues, and trigger alerts if any are found. A Scanning watch monitors a named build or repository in Artifactory and triggers an alert if any dependency with issues is found. An Impact Analysis watch listens to all providers streaming information to Xray and performs an impact analysis on all components in its database for any issues reported.
Alerts provide details about any issue found with any component, showing the full infection path through the component hierarchy.
View component relationships in your repositories to understand how one component affects others.
Automate component analysis through the rich Xray REST API.
