How to disable rubygems-update-* auto creation when local rubygems repo is created.

In order to disable auto creation of “rubygems-update” (shown below) when a local RubyGems repository is created :

  1. Go to $ARTIFACTORY_HOME/etc

  2. Open ‘artifactory.system.properties’ with a text editor.

  3. Add a line:

artifactory.gems.gemsAfterRepoInitHack=false

  1. Save the file and restart Artifactory.

This should disable the auto creation of that file.
