To work with Debian Snapshots in Artifactory, you need to configure the sources file of your Debian client to point to the following path:
The root of the snapshot
All the metadata files of the
$srcRepo/dists/$distribution, including the release and packages file, are copied to the snapshot folder.
In the folder, a property called
deb.snapshot.sourceis created pointing to the source repository.
You need to use
/artifactory/api/deb/$repoKey/snapshots/$tag, whereby the tag is a user-defined name for the snapshot.
Deleting a snapshot does not delete the related Debian Package files as the. Debian Snapshots sub-repositories does not contain the packages, but only redirect to them.
To create Debian Snapshot, see the Create Debian Snapshot REST API.
