    • Resolution: Done
    • Affects Version/s: 5.4.1, 5.4.2, 5.4.4
    • Fix Version/s: 5.4.6
    • Component/s: NPM
    • Labels:
    • Environment:

      Artifactory Pro 5.4.1
      Jenkins 2.67
      NodeJS 6.9.4
      npm 4.6.1

    • Severity:


      We have a virtual repository (npm-repo) that includes our local Artifactory npm registry and a remote repository pointed to https://registry.npmjs.org/. When using the virtual repository as the npm registry the following npm command fails.

      npm -dd install deep-diff --registry https://<ARTIFACTORYSERVER>/artifactory/api/npm/npm-repo

      The npm output is

      npm -dd install deep-diff --registry https://<ARTIFACTORYSERVER>/artifactory/api/npm/npm-repo
      npm info it worked if it ends with ok

      Tracing through the Artifactory logs the relevant entries appear to be the following.

      [INFO ] (o.a.r.HttpRepo      :427) - npmjs downloading https://registry.npmjs.org/deep-diff Unknown content length

      [ERROR] (o.a.a.n.r.NpmRemoteRepoHandler:391) - Error while parsing the response of a remote npm JSON query on 'https://registry.npmjs.org/deep-diff': Can not deserialize instance of java.lang.String out of START_OBJECT token

      Performing the same command, but omitting the --registry option allows the install to succeed. The json from https://registry.npmjs.org/deep-diff appears to be valid.
