General Information

This plugin integrates Artifactory Artifacts with WhiteSource.

The Artifactory plugin adds additional information to the Artifactory artifacts.  

Once invoked, all the artifacts on your Artifactory will be in analyzed by WhiteSource.

  • Policies will be enforced and policy details will be added to the artifacts property tab, WSS-Acrion (Approve/Reject) and WSS-Policy-Details.
  • Additional data for each artifact will be added to the property tab: WSS-Licenses, WSS-Description, WSS-Homepage and WSS-Vulnerabilities.

The plugin is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.

Note: The plugin scans repositories with no more than 10000 artifacts.

How It Works

The Artifactory plugin works in two modes:

  1. Cron based job - when invoked, repositories artifacts will be checked in WhiteSource and additional data will be added to the property tab of each artifact.
  2. Adding new Artifact - when uploaded, new artifact will be checked in WhiteSource. Policies will be checked and additional data will be added to the property tab of the artifact.
