Content Type/MIME Type

Content Type
User Guide

Artifactory provides a flexible mechanism to manage content type/MIME Type. You can define system-wide MIME types for common usage, but you can also overwrite the MIME types for specific files as needed. The list of default MIME types can be found in $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/etc/artifactory/mimetypes.xml and can be edited in order to add, remove or change MIME types. If a file has an extension that is not supported by any of the MIME types, or does not have an extension at all, Artifactory will use the default MIME type of application/octet-stream. To determine an artifact's MIME type, Artifactory compares its extension with the those in the mimetype.xml file, and applies the MIME type of the first extension that matches.


The ability to define and modify MIME types is available only to users working on a Self-Hosted platform.
