Artifactory Cold Storage enables admins to create retention policies that determine which artifacts or packages need to be removed and archived from a Live Artifactory instance. When the policy is executed, artifacts or packages are moved from the Live Artifactory instance to the Cold Artifactory instance, and the corresponding binaries are stored in the storage solution connected to the Cold Artifactory.

During the archiving process, new repositories are created dynamically in the Cold instance for each repository in the Live instance.


Only Artifactory admins can create and run retention policies.
