Repository Layout

Before you start creating remote repositories, you need to create a custom VCS repositories require an appropriate repository layout to support a more hierarchical layout of the cached items.

To use a hierarchical layout for your repository, you should can either use the built-in vcs-default layout that comes with Artifactory out-of-the-box, or define a Custom Layout. This will ensure that different maintenance features like Version Cleanup will work correctly.

Defining a Custom Layout for your repository is an optional step, however it is recommended to do so since it allows Artifactory to perform different maintenance tasks such as Version Cleanup automatically.

Once a remote repository is created you cannot change it's layout so we recommend that you define it beforehand.

Below is an example of a Custom Layout named vcs-default:
