JFrog Platform Administration Documentation

Administration / Platform

JFrog Projects is a management entity for hosting your resources (repositories, builds, Release Bundles, and Pipelines), and for associating users/groups as members with specific entitlements.

As such, using projects helps Platform Admins to offload part of their day-to-day management effort and to generate a better separation between the customer products to improve customer visibility on efficiency, scale, cost, and security. Projects simplifies the onboarding process for new users, and create better visibility for LOBs and project stakeholders.

The Platform and Project Admins create and manage projects in a dedicated Projects section in the Administration module. Platform Admins first set up the initial projects and assign Project Admins to the project, who can then assign RBAC roles to the Platform users. The projects will then serve as filters and are not visible to the users in the Platform but allow users to view resources based on their project membership and permissions.

Projects Support in the JFrog Platform

From Artifactory 7.31.10, the JFrog Projects feature is now supported on all JFrog Subscriptions but varies on the number of projects, according to the following subscription types:

  • Pro/X subscription: Up to 3 projects (No option to extend this subscription).

  • Enterprise subscription: Up to 30 projects (No option to extend this subscription)

  • Enterprise+ subscription: Up to a total of 300 unique projects for each subscription with the option to increase the number of projects by purchasing an additional License Bucket. Each bucket supports an additional 100 projects.

Project Allocation for Enterprise+ Subscriptions

For Enterprise+ subscriptions, the number of Projects is per subscription and not per JPD and is managed by Mission Control.

The number of Projects applies to all your instances and is not related to the number of servers in your deployment. Mission Control manages the Project allocation for each connected JPD, and counts the allocated projects separately.

When using projects, you will encounter new terminology and concepts. Before you begin planning and working with projects--and before creating your first project--it is important that you read the following topics carefully:
