Today, many technologies that are consumed as pure source files are deployed as binaries (for example, PHP, Rails, Node.js, Ruby etc.). As a Binary Repository Manager, Artifactory completes the picture by providing you an easy, safe and secure way to consume those binaries through support for VCS repositories.

Artifactory support for VCS provides:

  1. The ability to list all the tags and branches of any VCS repository.

  2. Access to remote VCS repositories such as GitHub ( and Bitbucket ( through Remote Repositories which provide the usual proxy and caching functionality.

  3. On-demand local caching of tags and branches for later use in case of network instability or hosted VCS service downtime.

  4. The ability to assign access privileges according to projects or development teams.
