How to enable checksum listing from the Native Browser view

Subject

By default checksum files are not displayed and downloadable from the Simple and Native Browser listing in Artifactory Repository Browser.

Affected Versions

Artifactory versions 4.x and above

Details

By default, the only way to download an artifact's checksum is by entering the repository path of the artifact and by appending the checksum type with a period (IE: ".sha1").  This process will allow users to download the checksum in a file.  However, this is a manual process that can be troublesome if users need to frequently verify artifact checksums. 

Resolution

In Artifactory versions 4.x and above, a property was added to artifactory.system.properties that can used to display any artifact's checksums from the Simple and Native Browser listing in the Artifactory Repository Browser.  By default, the artifactory.ui.hideChecksums property is set to true but it can be switched to false to allow for displaying of the checksums.  Artifactory will require a restart before the change goes into effect.  Clicking on any of the checksums from the Native Browser will allow users to download the checksum in a file.
