Service Activation and Manipulation
To activate Artifactory as a Service, use the or2-manage-service (or2ms) command with the
-a/--activate flag and the -s/--service-name parameter with the artifactory value:
or2ms -p project -r region -a -s artifactory
After the command is sent, the system requests an admin password. The password created by the user starting the service is then used to access the Artifactory server.
This is an additional security measure protecting the repositories in the storage.
The service, when activated, by default starts an Artifactory server VM with the following configuration:
- Image: CentOS7_64-bit
- Shape: MEDIUM
- Additional storage: 300 GB
All artifacts are stored on the additional disk. No root disk space is used for artifact storage which guarantees reliable performance and availability.
You can find the details on the VMs created within the service activation, by calling the or2-describe-instances (or2din) with the -S artifactory parameter or
or2-describe-services (or2dser) commands with -s artifactory parameter:
or2dser -p project -r region -s artifactory
Once the Artifactory service has been activated, you can access its Web UI. Use the URL returned in the response to the or2ser command and log in under the username "admin" and
the password specified at service activation. After you have logged in as administrator, you can create accounts for other service users.
The service usage price is defined by the price of the VM on which Artifactory is running.
The default parameters of an Artifactory instance are:
Additional storage: 300 GB
Therefore, the approximate monthly cost of an Artifactory server with 100% and 24/7 load is about $62.36 in EPAM-BY2 region (as of 05/12/2017).
The price can vary depending on the region and the usage pattern.
