The Authentication Provider is configured on a dedicated Artifactory prior to installing Mission Control and needs to be added to Mission Control as part of Mission Control onboarding wizard.
The Authentication Provider can be changed under Admin menu Security | Authentication Provider. Once configured, you can then proceed to assign Permissions to users and groups that are managed by the Artifactory instance you set as the Authentication Provider.
The Authentication Provider is configured within a step in the Mission Control Onboarding Wizard. The wizard appears when you launch Mission Control for the first time. If you are upgrading from a previous version to Mission Control Enterprise Plus, you can select an existing Artifactory service or in case of a new installation.
Selecting an Authentication Provider is mandatory and cannot be skipped in the wizard. Untill the Authentication Provider is set you will not be able to access Mission Contol and the wizard will continue to launch untill this task is completed.
When Upgrading to Enterprise Plus, Mission Control stores your existing Artifactory and Xray services. Starting Mission Control detects your existing services and displays the Artifactory services in the Onboarding Wizard.
In the Mission Control wizard:
In the Service view, the Artifactory service assigned as the Authentication Provider is tagged with a dedicated icon as displayed below.
You can reassign the Authentication Provider to a different Artifactory service. When you select a different Authentication Provider:
When reassigning the authentication provider in Mission Control, JFrog Distribution services which were using that authentication provider do not get updated automatically.
You need to as described in the JFrog Distribution User Guide.
JFrog Xray authentication provider is configured directly in Xray as described in in the JFrog Xray User Guide, therefore, changing the authentication provider in Mission Control will not have any effect on the authentication provider used for Xray.
|You can reassign an Authentication Provider to another Artifactory service but it can not be deleted.|
To select a different Artifactory service as the Authentication Provider, in the Admin module select Security | Authentication Provider page and click Save.
