With the release of Artifactory 7.27.3, Mission Control has become a microservice within Artifactory that provides the following features:
Manage Central License and Bucket License
Manage Platform Deployments (JPD)
Access Federation UI
View JPD Health and Status Dashboard
You must migrate mission control data after you upgrade to Artifactory 7.27.3 or later to use Mission Control as a microservice.
Mission Control is Moving to Artifactory as a Service
From JFrog Artifactory version 7.27.3, Mission Control has been integrated directly into Artifactory as a microservice. You will no longer need to install Mission Control to use the features it provides, only to enable the microservice in Artifactory.
The metrics capabilities that were provided Mission Control will now be provided through JFrog Insight. To learn more about how to install Insight, see Installing Insight.
You must install JFrog Insights to use trends and charts after you migrate to Mission Control microservice. For more information, see Migrating from Mission Control to Insight.
Mission Control Deployment Options Matrix
While Mission Control will be in maintenance mode with minor fixes and security updates beyond version 4.7.x, you can still install it as an independent product and use it independently as in its previous versions. Since there are several ways in which you can use Mission Control within the JFrog Platform, the following table provides a matrix of the deployment options and their uses.
While Mission Control can be configured to manage multiple environments, it can only have one "home" JPD. Meaning, each Platform deployment, can only have one Mission Control installation as part of its topology - either as a standalone installation, or as an Artifactory microservice.
Mission Control/Insight Configuration
Mission Control Microservice in Artifactory
From Artifactory 7.27.x
Supported from Artifactory version 7.27.x.
Mission Control microservice provides the topology of JPDs in the dashboard and manages the license buckets.
If you enable the Mission Control microservice, you can longer use the standalone Mission Control service anymore.
Mission Control microservice does not have a standalone
Standalone Mission Control Service
Artifactory continues to support standalone Mission Control until Mission Control end-of-life.
Mission Control works as a standalone service. You can continue to use Mission Control to manage your JPDs, license buckets, and view charts and trends.
You cannot use Insight service with standalone Mission Control service. Do not install Insight if you plan to use standalone Mission Control service.
If you enable Mission Control as an Artifactory microservice, the standalone Mission Control can no longer work as part of the Platform deployment.
Standalone Insight Service
From Artifactory 7.27.x
JFrog Insight is a product that provides the trends and charts that are currently available with Mission Control. Install Insight if you wish to view the trends and charts. For more information, see JFrog Insight.
You must enable Mission Control as a microservice and disable standalone Mission Control Service to use Insight.
Migrating to Insight
To migrate to Insight, do the following:
Do not enable standalone Mission Control service after you migrate to the Mission Control microservice and install Insight.
If you are using Projects and License Buckets, and are currently on Mission Control 4.6.x, upgrade to Mission Control 4.7.15 and Artifactory 7.27.x or later, before you migrate from standalone Mission Control to Insight. After the migrate, you will be using the Mission Control microservice in Artifactory.
Migrating the Mission Control Database to Artifactory
Perform the following steps if you want to use the Artifactory database for Mission Control:
Export the Mission Control database into a JSON file using the REST API.
curl -v -X PUT http://localhost:8082/mc/api/v1/system/backup/export -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN"
After running the
curl, the files/key will be generated in the
/var/backup/mcfolder in Mission Control. You need to then proceed to create an mc folder in Artifactory under
/var/backup/and move the files.
import.json. Copy this file and the file
backup.keyto the Artifactory node inside the folder
Stop the Mission Control service.
Upgrade Artifactory to latest version. For more information, see Upgrading Artifactory.
Enable Mission Control in Artifactory by updating the Artifactory system.yaml file
mc*enabled=true(Mission Control is not enabled by default after installation).
## Mission control template mc: enabled: true
Restart Artifactory to raise it with the newly-enabled microservice.
Import the JSON file into Artifactory with the import API that reads the JSON file:
curl -v -X PUT http://localhost:8082/mc/api/v1/system/backup/import -H "Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN"
If you use Mission Control in a high availability cluster, you need to run migration for only one node in the cluster since all nodes share the same database. But you must enable Mission Control microservice in all Artifactory nodes.
