This method can be used even if you already have a join key.

  1. Save the generated string file as join.key.

  2. Delete the existing join.key from $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/etc/security/.

  3. Place each file in the $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var /bootstrap/access/etc/security directory.

  4. Add the Artifactory permissions to the directories and the join.key file. For example,

    chown -R artifactory:artifactory access/etc/security/join.key
  5. Start the service.
