To restore an archived artifact or package:
Run the search as described in Search for Archived Artifacts or Search for Archived Packages.
To restore a single item, hover over the item and click the Restore icon.
To restore multiple or all items, select the relevant items and click the main Restore icon.
The Select Restore Destination window is displayed.
Based on your preference, select the following:
Restore to the original repository where the items were located before archiving.
If Original Location is selected, it is mandatory to provide a Fallback Location. If the Original Location no longer exists, the Fallback Location is used as the location for restoring artifacts and packages.
Before providing the Fallback Location, ensure that the path already exists.
If you are restoring packages, JFrog recommends assigning a Fallback Location that is the same package type as the restored package.
Restore to a new location on the Live instance.
Before providing the New Location, ensure that the path already exists.
If you are restoring packages, JFrog recommends assigning a New Location that is the same package type as the restored package.
Admins who have their email server configured will receive an e-mail notification when the restore operation is complete.
Depending on the number of Artifacts being restored, the restoration process can take a few minutes to a few hours.
If the restoration process encounters an error, the process fails and the error messages are logged accordingly.
The default maximum number of artifacts that can be restored during a single run is 30k. However, this value can be configured to higher or lower using the
retention.warm.restore.artifact.limitproperty in the Artifactory System Properties file. During the restore process, if the number of artifacts crosses the maximum limit, the restore process terminates after completing the restoration of artifacts to the maximum limit and the cause for termination is logged.
