Before setting up Cold Storage, you will need to verify that the following prerequisites are in place:

  • Two Artifactory instances


    The two Artifactory instances - Live and Cold - do not have to be the same version.

  • Enterprise or Enterprise Plus licenses

  • Unique license for each Artifactory instance

  • Administrator access to both instances

  • The Artifactory instance that is set as the Live Artifactory instance must have the Mission Control microservice enabled (see Migrating Platform Deployments and License Buckets for details)Migrating Platform Deployments and License Buckets


Every cluster of Artifactory that needs to archive requires a single Cold Storage instance with a dedicated license.
