Released: March 7, 2023
New UI Functionality to Clean up Artifactory Edge Release Bundles
To help admins manage Release Bundles and to clean up older items, JFrog created an automated cleanup process for received Release Bundles, which enables deleting target Release Bundles that were distributed to a specific Artifactory Edge instance. The automated process is managed using retention policies, which are set up using REST APIs.
In addition, a new Cleanup Report for Received Release Bundles, has been added the Platform UI, which enables admins to manage and to delete Release Bundles. All cleanup actions that are performed through this functionality are then recorded in the new Cleanup History function. For more information, see Managing Release Bundles.
Added Option to Block Deletion of Release Bundles Marked as Keep
Added a new REST API that sets an indicator to keep (indefinitely) or not keep (don't keep) Release Bundles. When set to keep, if a user tries to delete this bundle (from the UI or REST APIs) they will receive an error message saying that the Release Bundle is protected and cannot be deleted.
