Download Helm client version 2.9.0 or above for authenticated access
To use all features of Artifactory Helm chart repositories, including resolution of Helm charts, you must use version 2.9.0 or above of the Helm client that supports basic authenticated access to Artifactory.
Before you can use your Helm client to resolve Helm charts from Artifactory, you need to configure it for authenticated access with your Artifactory user and password by adding the virtual Helm chart repository to be used for resolution as shown below:
helm repo add <REPO_KEY> http://<ARTIFACTORY_HOST>:<ARTIFACTORY_PORT>/artifactory/<REPO_KEY> --username <USERNAME> --password <PASSWORD> helm repo update
helm repo add helm-virtual http://10.1.16.114:32775/artifactory/helm-virtual --username admin --password password helm repo update
Use an encrypted password
We recommend using an encrypted password instead of clear-text. For details, please refer to Centrally Secure Passwords.
