The Build Info repository, is a local repository that stores your build info json files as artifacts, providing you with:
user / group permission management equivalent to managing permissions on repositories with include/exclude patterns on build names
build info replication to other instances, since they are stored as artifacts in a repository
improved accessibility to the build info json files and overall performance of the Builds module
Whenever a new build is uploaded to Artifactory (either by a CI server plugin, directly using a Build REST API or from the Artifactory UI), it will automatically get deployed to this default artifactory-build-info repository.
Build info json files should be uploaded to the root of the repository. Artifactory will automatically place them in the repository using the following structure: artifactory-build-info > [build name] > [build number]-[deploy timestamp].json
Using the artifactory-build-info repository
The artifactory-build-info repository is automatically created and used by default. It cannot be removed. Removing it will cause all your build info to be deleted and a new default build info repository will be recreated.
If you have existing cleanup policies, defined in Artifactory User Plugins, that delete artifacts from your local repositories according to a policy, they will also affect the artifactory-build-info repository andshould be updated accordingly. Exclude this repository from your cleanup policies to ensure that your build info files are not deleted.
