General Security Settings

JFrog Platform Administration Documentation


The JFrog Platform security model offers protection at several levels. It allows you to do the following actions.

  • Assign role-based or user-based permissions to areas in your repositories (called Permission Targets)

  • Allow sub-administrators for Permission Targets

  • Configure LDAP out-of-the-box

  • Prevent clear text in Maven's settings.xml file

  • Inspect security definitions for a single artifact or folder and more.

The security is based on Spring Security and can be extended and customized.

WebUI Changes implemented in Artifactory 7.38.x and above
