A remote repository defined in Artifactory serves as a caching proxy for a registry managed at a remote URL.
Artifacts (such as JAR files) requested from a remote repository are cached on demand. You can remove downloaded artifacts from the remote repository cache, however, you can not manually deploy artifacts to a remote SBT repository.
To define a remote SBT repository to proxy a remote SBT registry follow the steps below:
In the Administration module, under Repositories | Repositories | Remote, click New Remote Repository.
In the New Repository dialog, set the Package Type to SBT, set the Repository Key value, and specify the URL to the remote registry in the URL field as displayed below:
Click Save & Finish.
The parameters needed to configure remote SBT repositories are identical to those used for Maven repositories. For more details, please refer to Remote Repositories.
