This page describes how to use JFrog CLI with JFrog Artifactory.

Read more about JFrog CLI here.

Syntax

When used with JFrog Artifactory, JFrog CLI uses the following syntax:

$ jfrog rt command-name arguments options


Environment Variables

The Artifactory upload command makes use of the following environment variable:

Variable Name
Description
JFROG_CLI_MIN_CHECKSUM_DEPLOY_SIZE_KB

[Default: 10]

Minimum file size in KB for which JFrog CLI performs checksum deploy optimization.

JFROG_CLI_EXTRACTORS_REMOTE

Configured Artifactory server ID (configured by the "jfrog c add command") and repository name from which to download the jar needed by the "jfrog rt mvn" and "jfrog rt gradle" commands. This environment variable’s value format should be <server ID>/<repo name>. The repository should proxy https://oss.jfrog.org/artifactory/oss-release-local.

JFROG_CLI_DEPENDENCIES_DIR

[Default: $JFROG_CLI_HOME_DIR/dependencies]

Defines the directory to which JFrog CLI's internal dependencies are downloaded.

JFROG_CLI_REPORT_USAGE

[Default: true]

 Set to false to block JFrog CLI from sending usage statistics to Artifactory.

JFROG_CLI_BUILD_NAME

Build name to be used by commands which expect a build name, unless sent as a command argument or option.

JFROG_CLI_BUILD_NUMBER

Build number to be used by commands which expect a build number, unless sent as a command argument or option.

JFROG_CLI_BUILD_PROJECT
JFrog project key to be used by commands which expect build name and build number. Determines the project of the published build.  
JFROG_CLI_BUILD_URL

Sets the CI server build URL in the build-info. The "jfrog rt build-publish" command uses the value of this environment variable, unless the --build-url command option is sent.

JFROG_CLI_ENV_EXCLUDE

[Default: *password*;*secret*;*key*;*token*]

 List of case insensitive patterns in the form of "value1;value2;...". Environment variables match those patterns will be excluded. This environment variable is used by the "jfrog rt build-publish" command, in case the --env-exclude command option is not sent.

JFROG_CLI_TRANSITIVE_DOWNLOAD_EXPERIMENTAL

[Default: false]

Used by the "jfrog rt download" command. Set to true to download artifacts also from remote repositories. This feature is experimental and available on Artifactory version 7.17.0 or higher.`

Read about additional environment variables at the Welcome to JFrog CLI page.


Authentication

When used with Artifactory, JFrog CLI offers several means of authentication: JFrog CLI does not support accessing  Artifactory without authentication. 

Authenticating with Username and Password / API Key

To authenticate yourself using your JFrog login credentials, either configure your credentials once using the jfrog c add command or provide the following option to each command.

Command option

Description 

--urlJFrog Artifactory API endpoint URL. It usually ends with /artifactory
--userJFrog username
--passwordJFrog password or API key

For enhanced security, when JFrog CLI is configured to use username and password / API key, it automatically generates an access token to authenticates with Artifactory. The generated access token is valid for one hour only. JFrog CLI automatically refreshed the token before it expires. The jfrog c add command allows disabling this functionality. This feature is currently not supported by commands which use external tools or package managers or work with JFrog Distribution. 

Authenticating with an Access Token

To authenticate yourself using an Artifactory Access Token, either configure your Access Token once using the jfrog c add command or provide the following option to each command.

Command option

Description 

--urlJFrog Artifactory API endpoint URL. It usually ends with /artifactory
--access-tokenJFrog access token

Authenticating with RSA Keys

Currently, authentication with RSA keys is not supported when working with external package managers and build tools (Maven, Gradle, Npm, Docker, Go and NuGet) or with the cUrl integration. 

From version 4.4, Artifactory supports SSH authentication using RSA public and private keys. To authenticate yourself to Artifactory using RSA keys, execute the following instructions:

  • Enable SSH authentication as described in Configuring SSH
  • Configure your Artifactory URL to have the following format: ssh://[host]:[port] 
    There are two ways to do this:

    • For each command, use the --url command option.
    • Specify the Artifactory URL in the correct format using the jfrog c add command.

    Make sure that the [host] component of the URL only includes the host name or the IP, but not your Artifactory context URL. 

  • Configure the path to your SSH key file. There are two ways to do this:
    • For each command, use the --ssh-key-path command option.
    • Specify the path using the jfrog c add command.

Authenticating with Client Certificates

Artifactory does not support authentication using client certificates. However, if Artifactory is behind an HTTP Proxy (Nginx for example), the proxy can be configured to allow access to Artifactory using a client certificate in a PEM format.
Since the certificate configuration is on the proxy, Artifactory is not aware of it and may still require authentication details using username/password, username/API key, access token or RSA keys.
To authenticate with the proxy using a client certificate, either configure your certificate once using the config command or use the --client-cert-path and --client-cert-ket-path command options with each command.

Not Using a Public CA (Certificate Authority)?

This section is relevant for you, if you're not using a public CA (Certificate Authority) to issue the SSL certificate used to connect to your Artifactory domain. You may not be using a public CA either because you're using self-signed certificates or you're running your own PKI services in-house (often by using a Microsoft CA).

In this case, you'll need to make those certificates available for JFrog CLI, by placing them inside the security/certs directory, which is under JFrog CLI's home directory. By default, the home directory is  ~/.jfrog, but it can be also set using the JFROG_CLI_HOME_DIR environment variable.


  1. The supported certificate format is PEM.
  2. Some commands support the --insecure-tls option, which skips the TLS certificates verification.
  3. Before version 1.37.0, JFrog CLI expected the certificates to be located directly under the security directory. JFrog CLI will automatically move the certificates to the new directory when installing version 1.37.0 or above. Downgrading back to an older version requires replacing the configuration directory manually. You'll find a backup if the old configuration under .jfrog/backup  


Storing Symlinks in Artifactory

JFrog CLI lets you upload and download artifacts from your local file-system to Artifactory, this also includes uploading symlinks (soft links).

Symlinks are stored in Artifactory as files with a zero size, with the following properties:
symlink.dest - The actual path on the original filesystem to which the symlink points
symlink.destsha1 - the SHA1 checksum of the value in the symlink.dest property

To upload symlinks, the upload command should be executed with the --symlinks option set to true. 

When downloading symlinks stored in Artifactory, the CLI can verify that the file to which the symlink points actually exists and that it has the correct SHA1 checksum. To add this validation, you should use the --validate-symlinks option with the download command.


Using Placeholders

The JFrog CLI offers enormous flexibility in how you download, uploadcopy, or move files through use of wildcard or regular expressions with placeholders.

Any wildcard enclosed in parenthesis in the source path can be matched with a corresponding placeholder in the target path to determine the name of the artifact once uploaded.

Examples

Example 1: Upload all files to the target repository

For each .tgz file in the source directory, create a corresponding directory with the same name in the target repository and upload it there. For example, a file named froggy.tgz should be uploaded to my-local-rep/froggy. (froggy will be created a folder in Artifactory).

$ jfrog rt u "(*).tgz" my-local-repo/{1}/ --recursive=false
Example 2: Upload all files sharing the same prefix to the target repository

Upload all files whose name begins with "frog" to folder frogfiles in the target repository, but append its name with the text "-up". For example, a file called froggy.tgz should be renamed froggy.tgz-up.

$ jfrog rt u "(frog*)" my-local-repo/frogfiles/{1}-up --recursive=false
Example 3: Upload all files to corresponding directories according to extension type

Upload all files in the current directory to the my-local-repo repository and place them in directories which match their file extensions.

$ jfrog rt u "(*).(*)" my-local-repo/{2}/{1}.{2} --recursive=false
Example 4: Copy all zip files to target respository and append with an extension.

Copy all zip files under /rabbit in the source-frog-repo repository into the same path in the target-frog-repo repository and append the copied files' names with ".cp".

jfrog rt cp "source-frog-repo/rabbit/(*.zip)" target-frog-repo/rabbit/{1}.cp

Command arguments

The command takes two arguments.

In case the --spec option is used, the commands accepts no arguments.

Source path

The first argument specifies the local file system path to artifacts which should be uploaded to Artifactory. You can specify multiple artifacts by using wildcards or a regular expression as designated by the --regexp command option. Please read the --regexp option description for more information.

Target path

The second argument specifies the target path in Artifactory in the following format: [repository_name]/[repository_path]

If the target path ends with a slash, the path is assumed to be a folder. For example, if you specify the target as "repo-name/a/b/", then "b" is assumed to be a folder in Artifactory into which files should be uploaded. If there is no terminal slash, the target path is assumed to be a file to which the uploaded file should be renamed. For example, if you specify the target as "repo-name/a/b", the uploaded file is renamed to "b" in Artifactory.

For flexibility in specifying the upload path, you can include placeholders in the form of {1}, {2} which are replaced by corresponding tokens in the source path that are enclosed in parenthesis. For more details, please refer to Using Placeholders.

Examples

Example 1

Downloading Files

This command is used to download files from Artifactory.

By default, the command only downloads files which are cached on the current Artifactory instance. It does not download files located on remote Artifactory instances, through remote or virtual repositories. To allow the command to download files from remote Artifactory instances, which are proxied by the use of remote repositories, set the JFROG_CLI_TRANSITIVE_DOWNLOAD_EXPERIMENTAL environment variable to true. This functionality requires version 7.17 or above of Artifactory.

The remote download functionality is supported only on remote repositories which proxy repositories on remote Artifactory instances. Downloading through a remote repository which proxies non Artifactory repositories is not supported.

Command arguments
The command takes two arguments
Source path

Specifies the source path in Artifactory, from which the artifacts should be moved, in the following format: [repository name]/[repository path]. You can use wildcards to specify multiple artifacts.

Target path

Specifies the target path in Artifactory, to which the artifacts should be moved, in the following format: [repository name]/[repository path]

If the pattern ends with a slash, the target path is assumed to be a folder. For example, if you specify the target as "repo-name/a/b/", then "b" is assumed to be a folder in Artifactory into which files should be moved. If there is no terminal slash, the target path is assumed to be a file to which the moved file should be renamed. For example, if you specify the target as "repo-name/a/b", the moved file is renamed to "b" in Artifactory.

For flexibility in specifying the upload path, you can include placeholders in the form of {1}, {2} which are replaced by corresponding tokens in the source path that are enclosed in parenthesis. For more details, please refer to Using Placeholders.

Build Integration

Overview

JFrog CLI integrates with any development ecosystem allowing you to collect build-info and then publish it to Artifactory. By publishing build-info to Artifactory, JFrog CLI empowers Artifactory to provide visibility into artifacts deployed, dependencies used and extensive information on the build environment to allow fully traceable builds. Read more about build-info and build integration with Artifactory here.

Many of JFrog CLI's commands accept two optional command options: --build-name and --build-number. When these options are added, JFrog CLI collects and records the build info locally for these commands. 
When running multiple commands using the same build and build number, JFrog CLI aggregates the collected build info into one build.
The recorded build-info can be later published to Artifactory using the build-publish command.

Collecting Build-Info

Build-info is collected by adding the --build-name and --build-number options to different CLI commands. The CLI commands can be run several times and cumulatively collect build-info for the specified build name and number until it is published to Artifactory. For example, running the download command several times with the same build name and number will accumulate each downloaded file in the corresponding build-info. 

Collecting Dependencies

Dependencies are collected by adding  the --build-name and --build-number options to the download command .

For example, the following command downloads the cool-froggy.zip file found in repository my-local-repo , but it also specifies this file as a dependency in build my-build-name with build number 18:

jfrog rt dl my-local-repo/cool-froggy.zip --build-name=my-build-name --build-number=18

Collecting Build Artifacts

Build artifacts are collected by adding  the --build-name and --build-number options to the upload command. 

For example, the following command specifies that file froggy.tgz uploaded to repository my-local-repo is a build artifact of build my-build-name with build number 18:

jfrog rt u froggy.tgz my-local-repo --build-name=my-build-name --build-number=18

Collecting Environment Variables

This command is used to collect environment variables and attach them to a build.

Environment variables are collected using the build-collect-env (bce) command.

For example, the following command collects all currently known environment variables, and attaches them to the build-info for build my-build-name with build number 18:

jfrog rt bce my-build-name 18

The following table lists the command arguments and flags:

Command name

build-collect-env (bce)

Abbreviation
bce
Command options


--project

[Optional]

JFrog project key.

Command arguments
The command accepts two arguments.
Build nameBuild name.
Build numberBuild number.
Example

Collect environment variables for build name: frogger-build and build number: 17

 jfrog rt bce frogger-build 17


Collecting Information from Git

The build-add-git (bag) command collects the Git revision and URL from the local .git directory and adds it to the build-info. It can also collect the list of tracked project issues (for example, issues stored in JIRA or other bug tracking systems) and add them to the build-info. The issues are collected by reading the git commit messages from the local git log. Each commit message is matched against a pre-configured regular expression, which retrieves the issue ID and issue summary. The information required for collecting the issues is retrieved from a yaml configuration file provided to the command.

The following table lists the command arguments and flags:

Command name

build-add-git

Abbreviation
bag
Command options


--config

[Optional]

Path to a yaml configuration file, used for collecting tracked project issues and adding them to the build-info.

--server-id

[Optional]

Artifactory server ID configured using the jfrog config command. This is the server to which the build-info will be later published, using the  build-publish (bp) command. This option, if provided, overrides the serverID value in this command's yaml configuration. If both values are not provided, the default server, configured by the jfrog config command, is used.

--project

[Optional]

JFrog project key.

Command arguments
The command accepts three arguments.
Build nameBuild name.
Build numberBuild number.
.git pathOptional - Path to a directory containing the .git directory. If not specific, the .git directory is assumed to be in the current directory or in one of the parent directories.
Example

jfrog rt bag frogger-build 17 checkout-dir

This is the configuration file structure.

version: 1
issues: 
  # The serverID yaml property is optional. The --server-id command option, if provided, overrides the serverID value.
  # If both the serverID property and the --server-id command options are not provided,
  # the default server, configured by the "jfrog config add" command is used.
  serverID: my-artifactory-server

  trackerName: JIRA
  regexp: (.+-[0-9]+)\s-\s(.+)
  keyGroupIndex: 1
  summaryGroupIndex: 2
  trackerUrl: http://my-jira.com/issues
  aggregate: true
  aggregationStatus: RELEASED
Configuration file properties
Property nameDescription
VersionThe schema version is intended for internal use. Do not change!
serverIDArtifactory server ID configured by the jfrog config command. The command uses this server for fetching details about previous published builds. The --server-id command option, if provided, overrides the serverID value.
If both the serverID property and the --server-id command options are not provided, the default server, configured by the jfrog config command is used.
trackerNameThe name (type) of the issue tracking system. For example, JIRA. This property can take any value.

regexp

A regular expression used for matching the git commit messages. The expression should include two capturing groups - for the issue key (ID) and the issue summary. In the example above, the regular expression matches the commit messages as displayed in the following example:

HAP-1007 - This is a sample issue

keyGroupIndex

The capturing group index in the regular expression used for retrieving the issue key. In the example above, setting the index to "1" retrieves HAP-1007 from this commit message:

HAP-1007 - This is a sample issue

summaryGroupIndex

The capturing group index in the regular expression for retrieving the issue summary. In the example above, setting the index to "2" retrieves the sample issue from this commit message:

HAP-1007 - This is a sample issue

trackerUrlThe issue tracking URL. This value is used for constructing a direct link to the issues in the Artifactory build UI.

aggregate

Set to true, if you wish all builds to include issues from previous builds.

aggregationStatus

If aggregate is set to true, this property indicates how far in time should the issues be aggregated. In the above example, issues will be aggregated from previous builds, until a build with a RELEASE status is found. Build statuses are set when a build is promoted using the jfrog rt build-promote command.

Adding Files as Build Dependencies

The download command, as well as other commands which download dependencies from Artifactory accept the --build-name and --build-number command options. Adding these options records the downloaded files as build dependencies. In some cases however, it is necessary to add a file, which has been downloaded by another tool, to a build. Use the build-add-dependencies command to to this.

By default, the command collects the files from the local file system. If you'd like the files to be collected from Artifactory however, add the --from-rt option to the command.

Command name

build-add-dependencies

Abbreviation
bad
Command options

When using the * or ; characters in the command options or arguments, make sure to wrap the whole options or arguments string in quotes (") to make sure the * or ; characters are not interpreted as literals.

--from-rt

[Default: false]

Set to true to search the files in Artifactory, rather than on the local file system. The --regexp option is not supported when --from-rt is set to true.

--server-id

[Optional]

Artifactory server ID configured using the config command.

--spec

[Optional]

Path to a File Spec.

--spec-vars

[Optional]

List of variables in the form of "key1=value1;key2=value2;..." to be replaced in the File Spec. In the File Spec, the variables should be used as follows: ${key1}.

--recursive

[Default: true]

When false, artifacts inside sub-folders in Artifactory will not be affected.

--regexp

[Optional: false]

[Default: false] Set to true to use a regular expression instead of wildcards expression to collect files to be added to the build info.This option is not supported when --from-rt is set to true.

--dry-run

[Default: false]

Set to true to only get a summery of the dependencies that will be added to the build info.

--exclusions

A list of Semicolon-separated exclude patterns. Allows using wildcards or a regular expression according to the value of the 'regexp' option.

Command arguments
The command takes threee arguments.
Build name

The build name to add the dependencies to

Build number

The build number to add the dependencies to

Pattern

Specifies the local file system path to dependencies which should be added to the build info. You can specify multiple dependencies by using wildcards or a regular expression as designated by the --regexp command option. If you have specified that you are using regular expressions, then the first one used in the argument must be enclosed in parenthesis.

Example

Example 1

Add all files located under the path/to/build/dependencies/dir/ directory as depedencies of a build. The build name is my-build-name and the build number is 7. The build-info is only updated locally. To publish the build-info to Artifactory use the jfrog rt build-publish command.

jfrog rt bad my-build-name 7 "path/to/build/dependencies/dir/"


Example 2

Add all files located in the m-local-repo Artifactory repository, under the dependencies folder, as depedencies of a build. The build name is my-build-name and the build number is 7The build-info is only updated locally. To publish the build-info to Artifactory use the jfrog rt build-publish command.

jfrog rt bad my-build-name 7 "my-local-repo/dependencies/" --from-rt

Publishing Build-Info

This command is used to publish build info to Artifactory. To publish the accumulated build-info for a build to Artifactory, use the build-publish (bp) command. For example, the following command publishes all the build-info collected for build my-build-name with build number 18:

jfrog rt bp my-build-name 18

This command is used to publish build info to Artifactory.

Command name

build-publish

Abbreviation

--env-exclude

[Default: *password*;*secret*;*key*]

List of case insensitive patterns in the form of "value1;value2;..."  environment variables match those patterns will be excluded.

--dry-run

[Default: false]

Set to true to skip TLS certificates verification.

Command arguments
The command accepts two arguments.
Build nameBuild name to be published.

Aggregating Published Builds

The build-info, which is collected and published to Artofactory by the jfrog rt build-publish command, can include multiple modules. Each module in the build-info represents a package, which is the result of a single build step, or in other words, a JFrog CLI command execution. For example, the following command adds a module named m1 to a build named my-build with 1 as the build number:

jfrog rt upload "a/*.zip" generic-local --build-name my-build --build-number 1 --module m1

The following command, adds a second module, named m2 to the same build:

jfrog rt upload "b/*.zip" generic-local --build-name my-build --build-number 1 --module m2

You now publish the generated build-info to Artifactory using the following command:

jfrog rt build-publish my-build 1

Now that you have your build-info published to Artifactpry, you can perform actions on the entire build. For example, you can download, copy, move or delete all or some of the artifacts of a build. Here's how you do this. 

jfrog rt download "*" --build my-build/1

In some cases though, your build is composed of multiple build steps, which are running on multiple different machines or spread across different time periods. How do you aggregate those build steps, or in other words, aggregate those command executions, into one build-info?

The way to do this, is to create a separate build-info for every section of the build, and publish it independently to Artifactory. Once all the build-info instances are published, you can create a new build-info, which references all the previously published build-info instances. The new build-info can be viewed as a "master" build-info, which references other build-info instances.

So the next question is - how can this reference between the two build-instances be created?

The way to do this is by using the build-append command. Running this command on an unpublished build-info, adds a reference to a different build-info, which has already been published to Artofactory. This reference is represented by a new module in the new build-info. The ID of this module will have the following format: <referenced build name>/<referenced build number>.

Now, when downloading the artifacts of the "master" build, you'll actually be downloading the artifacts of all of its referenced builds. The examples below demonstrates this,

Command name

Managing Docker Images

JFrog CLI provides full support for pulling and publishing docker images from and to Artifactory using the docker client running on the same machine. This allows you to to collect build-info for your docker build and then publish it to Artifactory. You can also promote the pushed docker images from one repository to another in Artifactory.

To build and push your docker images to Artifactory, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure Artifactory can be used as docker registry. Please refer to Getting Started with Docker and Artifactory in the JFrog Artifactory User Guide.
  2. Make sure that the installed docker client has version 17.07.0-ce (2017-08-29) or above. To verify this, run docker -v
  3. To ensure that the docker client and your Artifactory docker registry are correctly configured to work together, run the following code snippet.

    docker pull hello-world
    docker tag hello-world:latest <artifactoryDockerRegistry>/hello-world:latest
    docker login <artifactoryDockerRegistry>
    docker push <artifactoryDockerRegistry>/hello-world:latest

    If everything is configured correctly, pushing any image including the hello-world image should be successfully uploaded to Artifactory.

 

When running the docker-pull and docker-push commands, the CLI will first attempt to login to the docker registry.
In case of a login failure, the command will not be executed.

Building Npm Packages Using the Npm Client

JFrog CLI provides full support for building npm packages using the npm client. This allows you to resolve npm dependencies, and publish your npm packages from and to Artifactory, while collecting build-info and storing it in Artifactory. 

 Follow these guidelines when building npm packages:

  • You can download npm packages from any npm repository type - local, remote or virtual, but you can only publish to a local or virtual Artifactory repository, containing local repositories. To publish to a virtual repository, you first need to set a default local repository. For more details, please refer to .

  • When the npm-publish command runs, JFrog CLI runs the pack command in the background. The pack action is followed by an upload, which is not based on the npm  client's publish command. Therefore, If your npm package includes the prepublish or postpublish scripts, rename them to prepack and postpack, respectively.

Requirements

Npm client version 5.4.0 and above.

Artifactory version 5.5.2 and above.

Building Python Packages

JFrog CLI provides full support for building Python packages using the pip package installer. This allows resolving pip dependencies from Artifactory, while recording the downloaded packages. The downloaded packages are stored as dependencies in the build-info stored in Artifactory.

Once the packages are installed, the Python project can be then built and packaged using the the python client. Once built, the produced artifacts can be uploaded to Artifactory using JFrog CLI's upload command and registered as artifacts in the build-info.

Example project

To help you get started, you can use this sample project on GitHub.

Setting Python repository

Before you can use JFrog CLI to build your Python projects with Artifactory, you first need to set the repository for the project.

Here's how you set the repositories.

  1. CD to the root of the Python project.
  2. Run the jfrog rt pip-config command.
Command-name

pip-config

Abbreviation

Installing Python packages

The pip-install command uses the pip client to install the project dependencies from Artifactory. It can also record these packages as build dependencies as part of the build-info published to Artifactory.

Before running the pip-install command on a project for the first time, the project should be configured using the pip-config command.

JFrog CLI records the installed packages as build-info dependencies. The recorded dependencies are packages installed during the 'jfrog rt pip-install' command execution. When running the command inside a Python environment, which already has some of the packages installed, the installed packages will not be included as part of the build-info, because they were not originally installed by JFrog CLI. A warning message will be added to the log in this case.

How to include all packages in the build-info?

The details of all the installed packages is always cached by the 'jfrog rt pip-install' command in the .jfrog/projects/deps.cache.json file, located under the root of the project. JFrog CLI uses this cache for including previously installed packages in the build-info.
If the Python environment had some packages installed prior to the first execution of the 'jfrog rt pip-install' command, those previously installed packages will be missing from the cache and therefore will not be included in the build-info.

Running the 'jfrog rt pip-install' command with both the 'no-cache-dir' and 'force-reinstall' pip options, should re-download and install these packages, and they will therefore be included in the build-info and added to the cache. It is also recommended to run the command from inside a virtual environment.

Command-name

pip-install

Abbreviation

pipi

Command options


--build-name

[Optional]

Select replication job type (press Tab for options): push
Enter source repo key > ${source}
Enter target repo key > ${target}
Enter target server id (press Tab for options): my-server-id
Enter cron expression for frequency (for example, 0 0 12 * * ? will replicate daily) > 0 0 12 * * ?
You can type ":x" at any time to save and exit.
Select the next property > :x
[Info] Replication creation config template successfully created at template.json.

$ jfrog rt rplc template.json --vars "source=generic-local;target=generic-local"
[Info] Done creating replication job.


Creating  Replication Jobs

This command creates a new replication job for a repository. The command accepts as an argument a configuration template, which can be created by the jfrog rt replication-template command. The template also supports variables, which can be replaced with values, provided when it is used.

Command-name

replication-create

Abbreviation

rplc

Command options


--server-id

[Optional]

Artifactory server ID configured using the config command.

--vars

[Optional]

List of variables in the form of "key1=value1;key2=value2;..." to be replaced in the template. In the template, the variables should be used as follows: ${key1}.

Command arguments

template path

Specifies the local file system path for the template file to be used for the replication job creation. The template can be created using the "jfrog rt rplt" command.

Example 1

Create a replication job, using the template.json file previously generated by the replication-template command.

jfrog rt rplc template.json
Example 2

Update a replication job, using the template.json file previously generated by the replication-template command. Replace the source and target variables inside the template with the names of the replication source and target reposities.

jfrog rt rplc template.json --vars "source=my-source-repo;target=my-target-repo"

Deleting Replication jobs 

This command permanently deletes a replication jobs from a repository.

The repository from which the replications will be deleted.

Example

Delete a repository from Artifactory.

jfrog rt rpldel my-repo-name

Managing Permission Targets

JFrog CLI offers commands creating, updating and deleting permission targets in Artifactory. To make it easier to create and update permission targets, the commands which create and update the permission targets accept a pre-defined configuration template file. This template file can also include variables. which can be later replaced with values, when creating or updating the permission target. The configuration template file is created using the jfrog rt permission-target-template command.

Creating a Configuration Template

This command creates a configuration template file, which should be used as an argument for the jfrog rt permission-target-create and jfrog rt permission-target-update commands.

Command-name

permission-target-template

Abbreviation

ptt

Command options

The command has no options.

Command arguments

template path

Specifies the local file system path for the template file created by the command. The file should not exist.

Creating / Updating  Permission Targets

Using File Specs

To achieve complex file manipulations you may require several CLI commands. For example, you may need to upload several different sets of files to different repositories. To simplify the implementation of these complex manipulations, you can apply JFrog CLI download, upload, move, copy and delete commands with JFrog Artifactory using --spec option to replace the inline command arguments and options. Similarly, you can create and update release bundles by providing the --spec command option.  Each command uses an array of file specifications in JSON format with a corresponding schema as described in the sections below. Note that if any of these commands are issued using both inline options as well as the file specs, then the inline options override their counterparts specified in the file specs.

              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      },
      "target": "froggy/"
    }

Example 7: 

Download all files located under the all-my-frogs directory in the my-local-repo repository except for files with .txt extension and all files inside the all-my-frogs directory with the props. prefix.

Notice that the exclude patterns do not include the repository.

{
    "files": [
     {
        "pattern": "my-local-repo/all-my-frogs/",
        "exclusions": ["*.txt","all-my-frog/props.*"]
     }
    ]
}
Example 8:

{
    "files": [
     {
        "pattern": "my-local-repo/all-my-frogs/",
        "target": "all-my-frogs/files/",
        "sortBy": ["created"],

        "limit": 1
     }
    ]
}
Example 9:

{
    "files": [
     {
        "pattern": "my-local-repo/all-my-frogs/",
        "sortBy": ["size","created"],
        "sortOrder": "desc",

     }
    ]
}
Example 10:

{
    "files": [
     {
        "pattern": "my-local-repo/all-my-frogs/",
        "target": "all-my-frogs/files/",
        "sortBy": ["created"],
        "sortOrder": "desc",
        "limit": 1,
        "offset": 1
     }
    ]
}
Example 11:

This example shows how to delete artifacts in artifactory under specified path based on how old they are

The following File Spec finds all the folders which match the following criteria:

  1. They are under the my-repo repository.
  2. They are inside a folder with a name that matches abc-*-xyz and is located at the root of the repository.
  3. Their name matches ver_*
  4. They were created more that 7 days ago.
{
  "files": [
    {
      "aql": {
        "items.find": {
          "repo": "myrepo",
          "path": {"$match":"abc-*-xyz"},
          "name": {"$match":"ver_*"},
          "type": "folder",
          "$or": [
            {
              "$and": [
                {
                  "created": { "$before":"7d" }
                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    }
  ]
}
Example 12

This example uses placeholders. For each .tgz file in the source directory, create a corresponding directory with the same name in the target repository and upload it there. For example, a file named froggy.tgz should be uploaded to my-local-rep/froggy. (froggy will be created a folder in Artifactory).

{
    "files": [
      {
        "pattern": "(*).tgz",
        "target": "my-local-repo/{1}/",
      }
    ]
}


Example 13

This examples uses placeholders. Upload all files whose name begins with "frog" to folder frogfiles in the target repository, but append its name with the text "-up". For example, a file called froggy.tgz should be renamed froggy.tgz-up.

{
    "files": [
      {
        "pattern": "(frog*)",
        "target": "my-local-repo/frogfiles/{1}-up",
        "recursive": "false"
      }
    ]
}


Example 14

The following two examples lead to the exact same outcome.
The first one uses placeholders, while the second one does not. Both examples download all files from the generic-local repository to be under the my/local/path/ local file-system path, while maintaining the original Artifactory folder hierarchy. Notice the different flat values in the two examples.

{
    "files": [
      {
        "pattern": "generic-local/{*}",
        "target": "my/local/path/{1}",
        "flat": "true"
      }
    ]
}

{
    "files": [
      {
        "pattern": "generic-local/",
        "target": "my/local/path/",
        "flat": "false"
      }
    ]
}



Downloading the Maven and Gradle Extractor JARs

For integrating with Maven and Gradle, JFrog CLI uses the build-info-extractor jars files. These jar files are downloaded by JFrog CLI from jcenter the first time they are needed.

If you're using JFrog CLI on a machine which has no access to the internet, you can configure JFrog CLI to download these jar files from an Artifactory instance. Here's how to configure Artifactory and JFrog CLI to download the jars files.

  1. Create a remote Maven repository in Artifactory and name it extractorsWhen creating the repository, configure it to proxy https://releases.jfrog.io/artifactory/oss-release-local

  2. Make sure that this Artifactory server is known to JFrog CLI, using the jfrog c show command. If not, configure it using the jfrog c add command.

  3. Set the JFROG_CLI_EXTRACTORS_REMOTE environment variable with the server ID of the Artifactory server you configured, followed by a slash, and then the name of the repository you created. For example my-rt-server/extractors
