The Archive Type. Currently, zip, tar, tar.gz, and tgz are supported.

Include Checksum Files

Include SHA1, SHA256 and MD5 files - In Artifactory, checksum files (.sha1, .sha256 and .md5 files) are displayed and are downloadable in the HTML browsing endpoint (for example, http://<ARTIFACTORY>/artifactory/<REPOSITORY_KEY>), depending on one of the below pre-conditions:

1.The artifact was originally uploaded with its checksum value (i.e the deploying client provided a checksum header such as the "X-Checksum-Sha1" header on the request).

2.The repository Checksum Policy is set to "Trust Server Generated Checksums".

If the latter applies, there is no need to provide the artifact checksums during the upload in order for its checksum files to be visible.

The Download Folder functionality mimics this mechanism, and will write checksum files to the output archive based on the same conditions.

*With remote repository caches, there is no distinction for the checksum policy of the repository. Simply checking this checkbox will always result in checksum files being added.

You can also download a folder using the Rest API.JFrog REST APIs
