Get up and running quickly and easily with your new JFrog Platform installation using the onboarding wizard. The wizard is launched when you install the JFrog Platform, making sure you can complete the set up with the minimal information needed to get started.

Starting the JFrog Platform for the first time launches the JFrog Platform onboarding wizard.

The actual steps in the wizard depend on which services are included in the installation. For example, the onboarding wizard for an installation that includes Xray will prompt you to select the repositories for Xray to index.

When a service is added at a later date, after the JFrog Platform is already running, the onboarding wizard will assist you with adding the additional service.

Step 1: Welcome to the Onboarding Wizard

After this first login, you will be guided through a short onboarding wizard to make sure you have the minimal parameters needed. Click Get Started to begin.

Step 2: Reset Admin Password

When the JFrog Platform is installed, it creates a default user with admin privileges predefined in the system. In this step, you must reset the admin password by entering a new password. Click Next to continue.

Step 3: Activate License

Select your license type and enter your license key. Click Next to continue.

Note: For an Xray Trial License, make sure to select the Xray Trial License option before entering the license key.

When Mission Control is installed the wizard will display the option to add license buckets.

Select your license option. If you choose to add buckets, please provide the bucket name, Key and file, or URL. For additional buckets, click on Add Bucket as required. Click Next to continue.

Note: For a Mission Control License, make sure to select the License Bucket(s) option before entering the license key.

Step 4: Set Base URL

Set the base URL for accessing JFrog. For more information, see General System Settings.

Click Next to continue.

Step 5: Configure Platform Default Proxy

If you want remote access to your resources (repositories, builds, and Release Bundles), configure your default proxy server. Configuring a default proxy is optional, so you can skip this step. However, if you do decide to configure the default proxy now, all the three fields, Proxy Key, Host, and Port, are mandatory.

Step 6: Summary

 Click Finish to complete the wizard and get started with JFrog.

Step 7: Getting Started

 After completing the first onboarding steps of setting up the JFrog Platform, the Getting Started wizard is launched. The wizard aids you in completing the set up with the minimal information needed to get started. This section is intended to help you understand how to use and navigate the wizard.  

This is the first screen that appears when you start the JFrog Platform. Here, you will see the two main steps of getting started: 

Step 1     First, you will start by creating a Repository and manage access to the repository by setting different permissions and roles, which you will also assign to groups.

Step 2    The next step will be scanning your packages for any security vulnerabilities or violations.

You will be navigated through the different steps depending on each of the main steps. For example, when you select Create a Repository, you will be redirected to select a repository type:

Depending on what you select here, you will be taken to the next step in the wizard of creating and setting up your repository:

After completing each step, a success message pops up directing you to the next step:

Note that if you are unsure or need to learn more about a step, you can access the information you need in the JFrog documentation. 

I need to pause working in the wizard, what do I do?

The wizard is collapsable and can be accessed any time you need it. If for any reason, you need to pause the process, you can always access and resume the steps where you left off.

Once clicked, the wizard will expand containing all the main steps and sub-steps:

The progress of the main steps is indicated as either In Progress or Completed. The sub-steps that are completed are indicated by the color green.

I closed the wizard, how do I access it again?

If you closed the wizard and want to access it again, you can open it from the user menu:


Once you complete all the steps, you will receive a message indicating all the steps you have completed.

You can proceed with using the JFrog Platform and all its services.
