Highlights

  • PostgreSQL is the Recommended Database for Artifactory Installation 

    After a comprehensive evaluation of leading database providers' capabilities, scalability, and support, JFrog selected PostgreSQL as the preferred database solution for all its product offerings.

    Organizations can still choose to use any database in the list of Artifactory-supported databases, however, there is a minor new configuration step that will need to be performed for new installations. When installing a new Artifactory instance with any database other than PostgreSQL, you are required to specify the configuration in the system.yaml file.

  • Major Performance Improvements for PyPI, NuGet, and npm

    This version includes significant reductions in response time, as well as simplified and reduced database calls from the previous Self-Hosted version (7.77). These improvements apply to several important use cases, including virtual package resolution and external dependency resolution, among others. We have measured:

    • Up to 24% response time reduction in PyPI-related use cases

    • Up to 23% response time reduction in NuGet-related use cases

    • Up to 84% response time reduction in npm-related use cases

Feature Enhancements

  • Improved Artifact Tree View 

    The Artifact Tree view has been significantly improved such that when opening a node on a repository, a specific (configurable) number of artifacts will be displayed instead of the entire contents of the repository. This significantly reduces loading time for repositories containing a large number of artifacts. The default display number is 500, but this number can be changed in the Aritfactory UI (click here for instructions). If there are more artifacts to display beyond the current list, a Load more option appears at the end of the list and when clicked displays more items.General Settings

    The enhanced Artifact Tree View is available both in a Tree Browser and a Native Browser.

  • Automatically pair OAuth SSO users with JFrog Platform users 

    You can now automatically pair OAuth SSO users when they log in to the JFrog Platform with their JFrog Platform user based on their email address. No configuration change is required to enable the feature. For more information on OAuth SSO, see OAuth SSO.OAuth SSO

  • Open Metric for Federated Repository status 

    A new Open Metric records the number of Federated repositories that have the indicated status. For more information, see Federated Repository Metrics.Federated Repository Metrics

  • Lifecycle System YAML 

    There is a new section in the Artifactory YAML file for configuring parameters related to Release Lifecycle Management. This replaces the Configuration APIs that were used previously and have now been deprecated. For more information, see Lifecycle System YAML.Lifecycle System YAML

  • Helm Installation Updates 

    • The setSecurityContext field in Helm installation has been renamed as podSecurityContext.

    • Added a dedicated image section for initContainers instead of initContainerImage

    • Added unifiedSecretInstallation flag, which enables single unified secret holding all chart secrets to true by default.

  • Availability Zone Affinity

    You can configure a preferred availability zone in the router section of the Artifactory System YAML file. If a service is available in the local zone, traffic is sent to this local service. However, if a service is not available locally, traffic is sent to a service in another zone using a round robin strategy.

    For more information, see JFrog Router Service.JFrog Router Service

  • Access Token Creation by Project Admins

    Project admins can create access tokens that are tied to the projects in which they hold administrative privileges. For more information, see Access Token Creation by Project Admins.Access Token Creation by Project Admins

  • Changes to Anonymous Access

    From Artifactory 7.84.3, new users with anonymous access cannot access any ad hoc repository. You need to create a new permission target, select the repository's anonymous user, and set actions, and only then they can access the repositories.Permissions
