You can apply a filter to both the Tree Browser and the Simple Browser, either by clicking the search icon, or just typing out the filter expression while on the browser.
By repository name: To filter by repository name, just type the name you want to filter by
By package type: To only display repositories for a particular package type, type pkg:<package type>. For example, typing
pkg:docker will filter out any repositories that are not Docker repositories
By repository type: To only display particular repository types, type repo:<repository type>. For example, typing
repo:local will filter out any repositories that are not local repositories. The options are local, cached, remote and virtual.
You can view only the repositories you need by customizing the Artifact Repository Browser with your favorite repositories, and applying sort and filter options. Use as many different favorite, sort and filter combinations to narrow down the Artifact tree to display exactly what you need. Note that your filters and favourites are saved as cookies in your browser cache.
To tag a repository as a favourite :
Select the repository in the left pane, right-click and select Add to Favorites.
To view the list of favorite repositories, click the Favorites icon.
Selecting any item in the Tree or Simple browser displays tabs which provide information regarding the metadata associated with the selected item:
Info: General Information including download statistics such as the total number of downloads, time stamp of last download and the last user who downloaded.
Dependency Declaration: For Maven artifacts, this section provides code snippets for common build tools' dependency declaration
Virtual Repository Associations: Indicates which virtual repositories "contain" the selected artifact.
Checksums displays SHA1, SHA-256 and MD5 checksums automatically.
The permissions (Delete/Overwrite, Deploy/Cache, Annotate, Read) that each user or group regarding the selected item. Permissions for groups are as specifically assigned to them. Permissions for individual users are the union of permissions specifically assigned as well as those inherited by virtue of the user being included in groups.
This tab is available from version 5.10 and indicates if, and when the last time the selected artifact was indexed by JFrog Xray, as well as the Top Severity for any vulnerabilities detected. Note that if the selected artifact is blocked for download (whether because Xray is unavailable, or due to a policy specified on a Watch in Xray), the tab is marked with a red dot and displays in informational note. The 'More details in Xray' link opens the specific artifact in Xray to view more details.
To override download blocking for the artifact, you may click on the Allow download link.
|The list of properties annotating the selected item.|
|The list of users watching this item.|
|The list of builds that either produce or use the selected item.|
|Information on the selected item retrieved from Black Duck Code Center.|
|XML and POM files also display a tab through which you can view the file contents.|
For a Smart Remote Repository, Artifactory lets you navigate the contents of the repository on the remote Artifactory instance even if the artifacts have not been cached locally.
To enable remote browsing, you need to set the List Remote Folder Items checkbox in the remote repository configuration. Once this is set you can navigate that repository using the Simple or List Browser.
In the Simple Browser, an item that is not cached is indicated by an icon on its right when you hover over the item. In the List Browser, an item that is not cached is indicated by an arrow.
Artifactory provides a trash can as an easy way to recover items that have been inadvertently deleted from local repositories.
The trash can can be enabled or disabled in the Trash Can Settings by an Artifactory administrator.
When enabled, the trash can is displayed at the bottom of the Artifact Repository Browser and it holds all artifacts or repository paths that have been deleted from local repositories for the period of time specified in the Retention Period field.
Right-click on an item in the trash can gives you the option to Refresh, Restore it to its original location, or Delete permanently.
Right-click on the trash can icon gives you the option to Refresh the whole trash can, Search Trash for specific items, or Empty Trash which means that all items in the trash can will be permanently deleted.
Click the pin icon to pin the trash can so it remains visible even if you scroll the tree.
Artifactory fully supports browsing with WebDAV. For full details please refer to Using WebDAV.
