Artifactory System Properties

Installation & Setup

Rather than configuring properties in the JVM runtime configuration of the hosting container, you can edit $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/etc/artifactory/ file and restart Artifactory.

The Artifactory system properties are documented within this file.

Since these settings impact the entire container VM, we recommend using this feature primarily for specifying Artifactory-related properties only (such as changing the database used by Artifactory, etc.).


Setting properties in is an advanced feature and is typically not required.

Do not confuse these setting with those in the $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/data/artifactory/ file, which are for internal use.

From Artifactory version 7.71.2 and onward, instead of configuring authentication provider access using system properties in the file, you configure them in the Access YAML Configuration. For more information, see see Migrated Authentication Provider Properties.
