This feature is supported on the Cloud (SaaS) platform, with an Enterprise X or Enterprise+ license.

To help JFrog customers who wish to reduce the security risks associated with exposing their JFrog Cloud instances via the public Internet, JFrog enables you to set up an Azure PrivateLink connection.

This enables establishing a secure network connection–originating from your own cloud environment (Azure VNet), to your JFrog Cloud (SaaS) instance – without traversing the traffic via the public Internet. Instead, the traffic traverses within the Azure backbone.


To set up your PrivateLink connection, you will need to have a Microsoft Azure customer account.


It is possible to set up privatelink connection accross different Azure regions. For a full list, see Step 1: Create the Endpoint in Azure
