JFrog Artifactory Helm Chart - DEPRECATED

This chart is deprecated! You can find the new chart in: - Sources: - Charts repository:

helm repo add jfrog

Prerequisites Details

Chart Details

This chart will do the following:

  • Deploy Artifactory-Pro/Artifactory-Edge (or OSS if set custom image)
  • Deploy a PostgreSQL database using the stable/postgresql chart
  • Deploy an optional Nginx server
  • Optionally expose Artifactory with Ingress Ingress documentation

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name artifactory:

$ helm install --name artifactory stable/artifactory

Deploying Artifactory OSS

By default it will run Artifactory-Pro to run Artifactory-Oss use following command:

$ helm install --name artifactory --set stable/artifactory

Deploying Artifactory with replicator enabled

## Artifactory replicator is disabled by default. To enable it use the following:
$ helm install --name artifactory --set artifactory.replicator.enabled=true stable/artifactory

Accessing Artifactory

NOTE: It might take a few minutes for Artifactory’s public IP to become available. Follow the instructions outputted by the install command to get the Artifactory IP to access it.

Updating Artifactory

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

$ helm upgrade artifactory --namespace artifactory stable/artifactory

This will apply any configuration changes on your existing deployment.

Artifactory memory and CPU resources

The Artifactory Helm chart comes with support for configured resource requests and limits to Artifactory, Nginx and PostgreSQL. By default, these settings are commented out. It is highly recommended to set these so you have full control of the allocated resources and limits. Artifactory java memory parameters can (and should) also be set to match the allocated resources with artifactory.javaOpts.xms and artifactory.javaOpts.xmx.

# Example of setting resource requests and limits to all pods (including passing java memory settings to Artifactory)
$ helm install --name artifactory \
               --set artifactory.resources.requests.cpu="500m" \
               --set artifactory.resources.limits.cpu="2" \
               --set artifactory.resources.requests.memory="1Gi" \
               --set artifactory.resources.limits.memory="4Gi" \
               --set artifactory.javaOpts.xms="1g" \
               --set artifactory.javaOpts.xmx="4g" \
               --set nginx.resources.requests.cpu="100m" \
               --set nginx.resources.limits.cpu="250m" \
               --set nginx.resources.requests.memory="250Mi" \
               --set nginx.resources.limits.memory="500Mi" \

Get more details on configuring Artifactory in the official documentation.

Customizing Database password

You can override the specified database password (set in values.yaml), by passing it as a parameter in the install command line

$ helm install --name artifactory --namespace artifactory --set postgresql.postgresPassword=12_hX34qwerQ2 stable/artifactory

You can customise other parameters in the same way, by passing them on helm install command line.

Deleting Artifactory

$ helm delete --purge artifactory

This will completely delete your Artifactory Pro deployment.
IMPORTANT: This will also delete your data volumes. You will lose all data!

Create Distribution Cert for Artifactory Edge

# Create private.key and root.crt
$ openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout private.key -x509 -days 365 -out root.crt

Once Created, Use it to create ConfigMap

# Create ConfigMap distribution-certs
$ kubectl create configmap distribution-certs --from-file=private.key=private.key --from-file=root.crt=root.crt

Pass it to helm

$ helm install --name artifactory --set artifactory.distributionCerts=distribution-certs stable/artifactory

Kubernetes Secret for Artifactory License

You can deploy the Artifactory license as a Kubernetes secret. Prepare a text file with the license written in it.

# Create the Kubernetes secret (assuming the local license file is 'art.lic')
$ kubectl create secret generic artifactory-license --from-file=./art.lic

# Pass the license to helm
$ helm install --name artifactory --set artifactory.license.secret=artifactory-license,artifactory.license.dataKey=art.lic stable/artifactory

NOTE: You have to keep passing the license secret parameters as --set artifactory.license.secret=artifactory-license,artifactory.license.dataKey=art.lic on all future calls to helm install and helm upgrade!

Bootstrapping Artifactory

IMPORTANT: Bootstrapping Artifactory needs license. Pass license as shown in above section.

  1. Create bootstrap-config.yaml with artifactory.config.import.xml and security.import.xml as shown below:

    apiVersion: v1
    kind: ConfigMap
    name: my-release-bootstrap-config
    artifactory.config.import.xml: |
    <config contents>
    security.import.xml: |
    <config contents>
  2. Create configMap in Kubernetes:

    $ kubectl apply -f bootstrap-config.yaml
    1. Pass the configMap to helm bash $ helm install --name artifactory --set artifactory.license.secret=artifactory-license,artifactory.license.dataKey=art.lic,artifactory.configMapName=my-release-bootstrap-config stable/artifactory

Use custom nginx.conf with Nginx

Steps to create configMap with nginx.conf * Create nginx.conf file.

kubectl create configmap nginx-config --from-file=nginx.conf
  • Pass configMap to helm install bash helm install --name artifactory-ha --set nginx.customConfigMap=nginx-config stable/artifactory-ha ### Use an external Database There are cases where you will want to use a different database and not the enclosed PostgreSQL. See more details on configuring the database > The official Artifactory Docker images include the PostgreSQL database driver. > For other database types, you will have to add the relevant database driver to Artifactory’s tomcat/lib This can be done with the following parameters bash # Make sure your Artifactory Docker image has the MySQL database driver in it ... --set postgresql.enabled=false \ --set artifactory.postStartCommand="curl -L -o /opt/jfrog/artifactory/tomcat/lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.41.jar && chown 1030:1030 /opt/jfrog/artifactory/tomcat/lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.41.jar" \ --set database.type=mysql \ --set${DB_HOST} \ --set database.port=${DB_PORT} \ --set database.user=${DB_USER} \ --set database.password=${DB_PASSWORD} \ ...

NOTE: You must set postgresql.enabled=false in order for the chart to use the database.* parameters. Without it, they will be ignored!

Deleting Artifactory

To delete the Artifactory.

$ helm delete --purge artifactory

This will completely delete your Artifactory HA cluster.

Custom Docker registry for your images

If you need to pull your Docker images from a private registry, you need to create a Kubernetes Docker registry secret and pass it to helm

# Create a Docker registry secret called 'regsecret'
$ kubectl create secret docker-registry regsecret --docker-server=<your-registry-server> --docker-username=<your-name> --docker-password=<your-pword> --docker-email=<your-email>

Once created, you pass it to helm

$ helm install --name artifactory --set imagePullSecrets=regsecret stable/artifactory

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install.

Ingress and TLS

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

helm install --name artifactory \
  --set ingress.enabled=true \
  --set ingress.hosts[0]="" \
  --set artifactory.service.type=NodePort \
  --set nginx.enabled=false \

If your cluster allows automatic creation/retrieval of TLS certificates (e.g. cert-manager), please refer to the documentation for that mechanism.

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
    annotations: "true"
    ## Artifactory Ingress TLS configuration
    ## Secrets must be manually created in the namespace
      - secretName: artifactory-tls
