Configuring Artifactory

JFrog Artifactory Documentation



You can access the General Configuration settings of JFrog Artifactory in the Administration module under Artifactory | General | Settings.

Saving changes

Any changes you make must be saved in order for them to take effect.

General Configuration

The fields under General Settings allow you to set up various global parameters in Artifactory.


The General Settings fields are as follows:



File Upload Max Size

Maximum size allowed for files uploaded via the web interface.

Global Offline Mode

When selected, Artifactory will behave as if it is not connected to an external network (such as the internet), and therefore, will not query remote repositories (regardless of the offline status of any specific remote repository).

Archive Search Enabled

When a new archive file is deployed to Artifactory, its content is indexed in a way that lets the user search within an archive.

When selected, the files located within archive files are indexed to allow their content to be searchable through the “Archive Search” feature (formerly known as the “Class Search”).

It is recommended to disable this feature, if you do not use this feature as it consumes a large amount of storage.


From Artifactory 7.28.11, archive indexing for Cloud instances has been disabled in the system.yaml.

Global Replication Blocking

Configuring Global Replication Blocking allows you to enable or disable replication globally as needed.




Block Replications

When set, push and pull replication will be blocked according to the check boxes below, regardless of the configuration for specific repositories.

Block Push Replications

When set, push replication will be blocked regardless of the configuration for specific repositories.

Restoring Deleted Repositories

From Artifactory release 7.41.4, two changes have been implemented in Trash Can permissions:

  • Users who havedeploy or managepermissions to any repository will be able to view the Trash Can and to view files in thatrepository of origin.

  • Users who also havedeletepermissions to their repository will now also be able to access deleted files from that repository and to restore themwithout requiring admin assistance (they will not be able to view or restore any other repositories)

The contents of the Trash Can are filtered based on the repositories to which the user has permissions. This means that the user will not see or restore any other repositories unless they have permissions to that repository.Introduction to Permissions
