Configure SBT Proxy Repositories

JFrog Artifactory Documentation


To configure a repository defined in Artifactory as a proxy repository for SBT, add the code snippet below to your ~/.sbt/repositories file (C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.sbt\repositories on Windows).

my-ivy-proxy-releases: http://<host>:<port>/artifactory/<repo-key>/, [organization]/[module]/(scala_[scalaVersion]/)(sbt_[sbtVersion]/)[revision]/[type]s/[artifact](-[classifier]).[ext]
my-maven-proxy-releases: http://<host>:<port>/artifactory/<repo-key>/

Where <host>:<port> are the host URL and port on which Artifactory is running.

For example, if you are running Artifactory on your local machine, on port 8081, and want to proxy Ivy repositories through a repository called sbt-ivy-proxy, and proxy Maven repositories through a repository called sbt-maven-proxy you would use:

my-ivy-proxy-releases: http://localhost:8081/artifactory/sbt-ivy-proxy/, [organization]/[module]/(scala_[scalaVersion]/)(sbt_[sbtVersion]/)[revision]/[type]s/[artifact](-[classifier]).[ext]
my-maven-proxy-releases: http://localhost:8081/artifactory/sbt-maven-proxy/

Proxying Maven and Ivy repositories separately

We recommend using different repositories to proxy Maven and Ivy repositories as a best practice described in Proxying Ivy Repositories in the SBT Reference Manual.

To specify that all resolvers added in the SBT project should be ignored in favor of those configured in the repositories configuration, add the following configuration option to the SBT launcher script:

You can also add this setting to your /usr/local/etc/sbtopts ( C:\Program Files (x86)\sbt\conf\sbtopts on Windows)
