Starting from Artifactory 7.27.0, Mission Control is available as a microservice in Artifactory. The trends and charts that are currently available with Mission Control will now be available through JFrog Insight. While you can continue to use Mission Control as a standalone product, it is recommended that you install Insight to take advantage of the latest features in trends and charts.

From JFrog Artifactory version 7.27, Mission Control has been integrated directly into Artifactory as a service. You will no longer need to install Mission Control to use the features it provides, only to enable the service in Artifactory.

The metrics capabilities that were provided Mission Control will now be provided through JFrog Insight. To learn more about how to install Insight, see Installing Insight.

To learn more about how Mission Control has been integrated into Artifactory and to migrate to Mission Control microservice, see Migrating Platform Deployments and License Buckets.

You must install JFrog Insights to use trends and charts after you migrate to Mission Control microservice. For more information, see Migrating from Mission Control to Insight.

The following table provides an overview of the Mission Control and Insight deployment.

To upgrade from Mission Control to Insight:

  1. Stop the existing Mission Control service.
  2. Disable Filebeat in the Artifactory and Xray system.yaml files.

        filebeat:
