If you perform a system import on an Artifactory instance that has active repository Federations, all remote members are removed from the Federation automatically. This is done to ensure the import can be completed successfully.

After the import is complete, perform the procedure described below to recover the Federation.

To recover a repository Federation after a system import:

  1. Re-establish trust with each remote member. For more information, see Setup Prerequisites for Federated Repositories.

  2. Go to the Artifactory instance (JPD) of each remote member, remove the imported member from the Federation, and then add it back again.

    Adding the imported member back to the Federation will trigger a Full Sync for recovering the files.
