Resources play different roles based on where and how they are used:

  • Triggering Resource: Whenever there is a change in this type of resource, it triggers the dependent step. Examples: CronTrigger, GitRepo, IncomingWebhook.

  • Generated Resource : These are resources that are generated by a step and they can trigger successive downstream steps. Examples: Aql, BuildInfo, FileSpec, Image.

  • Webhook Resource: IncomingWebhook and OutgoingWebhook are resources that can be used to integrate a pipeline with third-party services.

Pipelines supports several types of resources, with each resource capable of serving a specific activity:




An Aql resource specifies an Artifactory query using Artifactory Query Language.


A BuildInfo resource is the metadata associated with a build in Artifactory.


A comprehensive CodeAnalysis resource capable of generating Sonar scan reports and capturing point-in-time metrics. It is used with Sonar Integration.


A CronTrigger is used as an input resource as a step to trigger execution of the step at a scheduled time.


A DistributionRule resource is the set of Destination rules that can be applied to distributing a release bundle using JFrog Distribution.


A FileSpec resource specifies a File Spec, which provides the details of files to upload or download from Artifactory.


A GitRepo is used to connect JFrog Pipelines to a source control repository. It creates a webhook to the repo so that future commits will automatically create a new version with the webhook payload.


The HelmChart resource maps to a specific chart in an Artifactory Helm Repository.


An Image resource is used to add a reference to a Docker image to your pipeline.


An IncomingWebhook resource can trigger one or more jobs in your pipeline whenever the associated URL is called using the HTTP POST method.


An OutgoingWebhook resource uses HTTP to send information from a step to an external API endpoint through an Outgoing Webhook Integration.


A PropertyBag resource is used to pass information from one pipeline to another and provide environment variables to a step in the format of a resource.


A ReleaseBundle resource specifies a set of artifacts in Artifactory that are distributed to Artifactory Edge nodes as a JFrog Distribution Release Bundle.


A RemoteFile resource enables using a file on a remote file server.


A VmCluster is used to represent a set of virtual machines. It is mainly used to deploy services/apps to the specified clusters and in some cases, it can be used to run certain maintenance activities on the clusters as a whole.
