The Pipe-Info repository, like the Build-Info Repository, is a local repository that is created per Project and stores all the metadata for each pipeline.
Whenever Pipelines uploads a new build to Artifactory, its pipeinfo json files are automatically deployed to either the default artifactory-pipe-info repository or the <project_key>-pipe-info repository. Pipeline artifacts that do not belong to any Project are stored in the artifactory-pipe-info repository and pipeline artifacts that belong to specific Projects are stored in the <project_key>-pipe-info repository.
Viewing pipe-info Repository
To view the pipe-info repository, from the Application module, click Artifactory | Artifacts and then click the artifactory-pipe-info repository.
Artifactory automatically places the json files in the pipe-info repository using the following structure: [pipeline-name] → [branch] → [run-rumber] → [pipe-info files].
The JSON schema defines a pipeinfo object. The object is composed of three components, which summarizes a run:
head.json: Contains metadata about the pipeline, and the contents of the pipeline yaml file.
info.json: Contains metadata about the status of the run.
step.json: Contains metadata about the step.
.json file is stored with a corresponding
.json.sig signature file. To view the contents ofa json file, right-click the file and click View, as shown in the image above.
