User Guide

Be aware of the following limitations of manual failover.

  • Synchronicity of JPDs: This setup will not affect the synchronization between your JPDs. To facilitate seamless failover, both JPDs must be kept synchronized and up-to-date by you, achievable through your use of Federated Repositories and Access Federation within the limitations described in the documentation, such as - Federated repository does not support sync of JFrog Xray data and the solution is only for Artifactory data.Federated Repositories

  • You must setup all security configurations, georestrictions, allowlist, and private endpoints for each JPD.

    You need to switch private endpoints manually to the secondary region during a failover event unless your provider supports multi-region setups. For example, Azure supports multi-region setups. If different providers are used, private endpoints will not work during a failover.

  • Prior to performing a manual failover, all validations regarding state of synchronization and set up must be done by the user.

  • Automatic failover, same region failover, self-hosted JPDs, and Docker subdomains are not supported.

  • This is not a DR or Active-Active load balancing solution.
