From version 7.4, Artifactory supports Debian InRelease metadata files.

Artifactory will produce an InRelease metadata file in the repository when working with GPG signing. Downloading a Debian package from Artifactory will now be faster as the client will only download the InRelease file without downloading the Release and Release.gpg files that are heavier.

Debian Release Files Configuration

The Release files default values for the Label and Origin parameters is Artifactory. From Artifactory version 6.23.3 or 7.11.1, it is possible to change these values.

To do so, set the deb.release.origin and/ or deb.release.label custom properties to the desired value on the root repository level.
