You can deploy packages to a local or virtual CRAN repository using the Deploy feature in the UI or using a POST request. To learn more, see:
The CRAN metadata is automatically calculated and updated when adding, removing, copying or moving CRAN packages. The calculation is only invoked after a package-related action is completed.
It may sometimes take up to 30 seconds to complete as the process is asynchronous and its performance depends on the overall system load.
You can also invoke metadata calculation on the entire repository by selecting Reindex Packages.
Set the Default Deployment CRAN Repository
To deploy CRAN packages to a virtual CRAN repository, make sure you have set the Default Deployment Repository.
