JFrog Container Registry Helm Chart

JFrog Container Registry is a free Artifactory edition with Docker and Helm repositories support.

Heads up: Our Helm Chart docs are moving to our main documentation site. For Artifactory installers, see Installing Artifactory.

Prerequisites Details

  • Kubernetes 1.12+

Chart Details

This chart will do the following:

  • Deploy JFrog Container Registry
  • Deploy an optional Nginx server
  • Deploy an optional PostgreSQL Database
  • Optionally expose Artifactory with Ingress Ingress documentation

Installing the Chart

Add ChartCenter Helm repository

Before installing JFrog helm charts, you need to add the ChartCenter helm repository to your helm client.

helm repo add center https://repo.chartcenter.io
helm repo update

Install Chart

To install the chart with the release name jfrog-container-registry:

helm upgrade --install jfrog-container-registry --set artifactory.postgresql.postgresqlPassword=<postgres_password> --namespace artifactory-jcr center/jfrog/artifactory-jcr

Accessing JFrog Container Registry

NOTE: If using artifactory or nginx service type LoadBalancer, it might take a few minutes for JFrog Container Registry’s public IP to become available.

Updating JFrog Container Registry

Once you have a new chart version, you can upgrade your deployment with

helm upgrade jfrog-container-registry center/jfrog/artifactory-jcr

Special Upgrade Notes

Artifactory upgrade from 6.x to 7.x (App Version)

Arifactory 6.x to 7.x upgrade requires a one time migration process. This is done automatically on pod startup if needed. It’s possible to configure the migration timeout with the following configuration in extreme cases. The provided default should be more than enough for completion of the migration.

    # Migration support from 6.x to 7.x
      enabled: true
      timeoutSeconds: 3600
  • Note: If you are upgrading from 1.x to 3.x and above chart versions, please delete the existing statefulset of postgresql before upgrading the chart due to breaking changes in postgresql subchart. bash kubectl delete statefulsets <OLD_RELEASE_NAME>-postgresql * For more details about artifactory chart upgrades refer here ### Deleting JFrog Container Registry On helm v2: bash helm delete --purge jfrog-container-registry

On helm v3:

helm delete jfrog-container-registry --namespace artifactory-jcr                                                                                                                       

This will delete your JFrog Container Registry deployment.<br>
**NOTE:** You might have left behind persistent volumes. You should explicitly delete them with
kubectl delete pvc ...
kubectl delete pv ...


The JFrog Container Registry chart comes with PostgreSQL deployed by default.
For details on the PostgreSQL configuration or customising the database, Look at the options described in the Artifactory helm chart.

Ingress and TLS

To get Helm to create an ingress object with a hostname, add these two lines to your Helm command:

helm upgrade --install jfrog-container-registry \
  --set artifactory.nginx.enabled=false \
  --set artifactory.ingress.enabled=true \
  --set artifactory.ingress.hosts[0]="artifactory.company.com" \
  --set artifactory.artifactory.service.type=NodePort \
  --namespace artifactory-jcr center/jfrog/artifactory-jcr

To manually configure TLS, first create/retrieve a key & certificate pair for the address(es) you wish to protect. Then create a TLS secret in the namespace:

kubectl create secret tls artifactory-tls --cert=path/to/tls.cert --key=path/to/tls.key

Include the secret’s name, along with the desired hostnames, in the Artifactory Ingress TLS section of your custom values.yaml file:

      ## If true, Artifactory Ingress will be created
      enabled: true

      ## Artifactory Ingress hostnames
      ## Must be provided if Ingress is enabled
        - jfrog-container-registry.domain.com
        kubernetes.io/tls-acme: "true"
      ## Artifactory Ingress TLS configuration
      ## Secrets must be manually created in the namespace
        - secretName: artifactory-tls
            - jfrog-container-registry.domain.com
