JFrog Platform offers all of JFrog’s services as a unified experience. There is a prerequisite to install Artifactory version 7 before we install other JFrog services such as JFrog Xray, JFrog Mission Control, JFrog Edge, JFrog Distribution and the latest JFrog Pipelines. However, we would need an Enterprise plus bucket license and onboard it to activate the above services.


Follow these steps, in order, to onboard a bucket license during the installation of JFrog Platform:

  1. Install Artifactory version 7.x.
  1.  Install Mission Control version 4.x.
  1. Start the Artifactory service.
  2. In the UI, go to Administration > Security > Connection Details. Provide the administrator password and fetch the join.key details by clicking on the clipboard icon.

  2. Upon successful start go the UI and refresh you should now see that Mission Control and Artifactory have been activated, which means you may now begin onboarding in the license screen.
  3. Select a bucket option and upload the bucket.
