Artifact Repository

Typically, enterprises maintain application packages, data, and scripts in multiple repositories of their choice. Use the Artifact Repository to attach your own external repository to store and access your files. CloudCenter provides a Repositories tab in the CCM UI for this purpose.

Purpose

Use the Artifact Repository to:

  • Point to application binaries, scripts, and shared files.
  • View and maintain the list of external repositories (see Share Artifact Repositories) and point to the repository name in application profiles by providing a relative path. 

Enterprises may decide to make the artifact repository (or multiple artifact repositories) specific to a user, a tenant, a cloud, or any combination of these resources based on their respective deployment requirement. 

Using the Artifact Repository in an Application Profile

Tenant and users can view repositories specific to their tenant (or as permitted by their admin). Admins can enforce access permissions for each repository. See Permission Control for additional details.

Automatic Endpoint URL Detection

When modeling the application or application profiles, users can select the relevant repository to provide the relative path to the application packages/scripts/file path. The list of added/available repositories is displayed for user selection. When you select a repository, the endpoint URL is automatically appended and you only need to provide the name of the folder where the packages/scripts/files are located.
