Following a recent upgrade of our onprem Artifactory instance, both the "URL to File" in the Artifactory UI, and the downloadURI from the REST API are no longer a direct link to the file, and instead redirect to a native browser index page for the file (see attached).
For some users this is not a problem, however for external tools and systems it means they can no longer download files directly.
Steps to reproduce:
- Upload an artifact
- Navigate to Artifact in UI
- Click link provided next to "URL to file"
- Artifactory redirects to an index page for the file before downloading
Artifact is downloaded directly when clicking URL to file, or when pasting or using the downloadURI provided from the REST API for the File Info endpoint.
User is redirected to a native browser index page before the file is downloaded
