This section describes how to distribute Release Bundles v2. For instructions about distributing Release Bundles v1, see Distribute Release Bundles (v1).
After creating your Release Bundle (and promoting it through the stages of your SDLC, as needed), you can distribute it to the Distribution Edges to which you have distribution privileges.
Distribution is responsible for triggering the replication process that happens from the source Artifactory to the Distribution Edges. First, it replicates the Release Bundle information to each Edge node and then initiates the replication process in the source Artifactory. For more details, see The Distribution Flow.
Release Bundles created within a specific project can be promoted to various environments, but the distribution of those Release Bundles to Edge nodes and additional distribution targets is not supported in the current version.
Use one of the following methods to connect Artifactory and the Edge nodes:
Using Scoped Tokens (Pairing Tokens): Connect the source Artifactory and the edge nodes using the JFrog Platform scoped tokens function. This is the default option used for connecting the source and node. (If you are unable to upgrade your self-hosted instance, or need to continue using the Circle of Trust, see the next method).
Circle of Trust: Establish a circle of trust between your source Artifactory and Artifactory Edge nodes. This should be applied to both the source and target Artifactory nodes.
