JFrog Platform New Functionalities
System Architecture

Installation and Upgrade

Distribution 2.0 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. Learn More >Installing DistributionUpgrading DistributionSystem Directories

Distribution must be connected only to a single Artifactory instance. If you have a single Distribution instance connected to multiple Artifactory instances, the upgrade to the JFrog Platform requires mapping a source Artifactory to a single Distribution service. If you are creating and distributing release bundles from multiple source Artifactory instances, you now need to deploy a Distribution service in every JPD that contains these source Artifactory instances. You would then register multiple Distribution services to one Mission Control.

Unified User Interface

This version introduces a new UI that is unified for the entire JFrog Platform, including all JFrog products. If you are 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. Learn More >Permissions


All JFrog products now follow a standardized logging format and naming convention. Learn More >Logging

Feature Enhancements
Xray Integration

Release Bundles can now be scanned for security and compliance issues with JFrog Xray. This means you can now define security and compliance policies for your organization, on the release bundles, to ensure your distributable content is protected and meets your standards.

Package View Including Distribution Data

This version includes a Package Viewer, providing a 360 view of your packages from all your available JFrog services, including JFrog Distribution. With this, you can understand which packages are included in release bundles and have been distributed to various Artifactory Edge devices. Learn More >
