A virtual repository in Artifactory aggregates packages from both local and remote repositories allowing you to access both locally hosted Conda packages and remote proxied Conda libraries from a single URL defined for the virtual repository.
To create a virtual Conda repository, set Conda as the Package Type, and select the underlying local and remote Conda repositories to include under the Repositories section.
Virtual Repository Metadata
Artifactory maintains your aggregated virtual repository metadata in a clever way that keeps your metadata up-to-date by reflecting changes in the aggregated local repositories in real-time. For aggregated remote repositories, the virtual repository metadata is renewed on-demand, in minimal intervals of 10 minutes by default. The renewal period is controlled using the Retrieval Cache Period parameter of your virtual repository.
