List Browsing lets you browse the contents of a repository outside of the Artifactory UI. It provides a highly responsive, read-only view and is similar to a directory listing provided by HTTP servers.

To use List Browsing, click the icon to the right of a repository name in the Artifact Repository Browser (indicated in red in the screenshot below).

Creating public views with List Browsing

List browsing can be used to provide public views of a repository by mounting it on a well-known path prefix such as list (see example below).

This allows the system administrator to create a virtual host that only exposes Artifactory's List Browsing feature to public users (while maintaining write and other advanced privileges), but limiting access to the intensive UI and REST API features for internal use only.
