JFrog Platform New Functionalities

System Architecture

The new Artifactory architecture is more Cloud Native. The Artifactory application has been divided into several microservices. 

Artifactory system.yaml

This release introduces a new system configuration file, allowing system configurations to be handled externally to the application, before/after the installation process.

Installation and Upgrade

Artifactory 7.0 comes with a new installer, which affects the Installation and Upgrade procedures. The file structure has been improved and is now aligned across all JFrog products. 

Note

Upgrade process changes: Update reverse proxy and load balancer

When upgrading your Artifactory HA installation from version 6.x to 7.x, make sure to adjust your reverse proxy settings and to update your load balancer configuration to use the new JFrog Platform URL: http://<hostname>:8081.

Unified User Interface

This version introduces a new UI that is unified for the entire JFrog Platform, including all JFrog products. If you're using Artifactory and other JFrog products such as JFrog Xray, JFrog Distribution, JFrog Mission Control and JFrog Insights, you will now be able to access them all from within a single UI with one URL address. 

Unified Permission Model

This version unifies all JFrog product permissions, allowing easier permission management across all products from one unified UI. The Unified Permission Model enables you to create a single permission target that applies to all products installed in the JFrog Platform. Since the products are unified within the Platform, you can now use a single permission target to control the permissions of all products. 

Logging

All JFrog products now follow a standardized logging format and naming convention.

Feature Enhancements

Packages Page

While previously the Packages page provided information for Docker and npm packages, it is now extended to provide metadata for all package types in your system (excluding Git LFS and Generic repositories). 

Search Experience

The search experience has been enhanced to enable searching for all resource types, including packages, builds and artifacts from a single search bar. It now also includes advanced capabilities, such as keyword search, simplifying the search experience.
