User Guide

In order to be able to trace how users interact with your repositories we recommend that you uncheck the Allow Anonymous Access setting described above. This means that users will be required to enter their user name and password when using their NuGet clients.

You can configure your NuGet client to require a username and password using the following command:

nuget sources update -Name Artifactory -UserName admin -Password password

You can verify that your setting has taken effect by checking that the following segment appears in your%APPDATA%\NuGet\NuGet.Config file:

        <add key="Username" value="admin" />
        <add key="Password" value="...encrypted password..." />


NuGet.Config file can also be placed in your project directory, for further information please refer to NuGet Configuration File
