Overview

JFrog CLI is a compact and smart client that provides a simple interface that automates access to Artifactory and Mission Control through their respective REST APIs. By using the JFrog CLI, you can greatly simplify your automation scripts making them more readable and easier to maintain. Several features of the JFrog CLI makes your scripts more efficient and reliable:

  • Multi-threaded upload and download of artifacts make builds run faster
  • Checksum optimization reduces redundant file transfers
  • Wildcards and regular expressions give you an easy way to collect all the artifacts you wish to upload or download.
  • "Dry run" gives you a preview of file transfer operations before you actually run them

Download and Installation

You can either install JFrog CLI using one of the supported installers or download its executable directly. Visit the Install JFrog CLI Page for details.

Building the Executable

JFrog CLI is written in the Go programming language, so to build the CLI yourself, you first need to have Go installed and configured on your machine.

Install Go

To download and install Go, please refer to the Go documentation. Please download Go 1.14.x or above.

Download and Build the CLI

Navigate to a directory where you want to create the jfrog-cli project, outside the $GOPATH tree.

If the GOPATH variable is unset, it's default value is the go folder under the user home.

Verify that the GO111MODULE variable is either unset, or explicitly set to auto.

Clone the jfrog-cli project by executing the following command:

git clone https://github.com/jfrog/jfrog-cli

Build the project by navigating to the jfrog folder and executing the following commands. On Unix based systems run:

cd jfrog-cli
build/build.sh

On Windows run:

cd jfrog-cli
build\build.bat

Once completed, you will find the JFrog CLI executable at your current directory.

Tests

Usage

go test -v github.com/jfrog/jfrog-cli [test-types] [flags]

The flags are:

Flag Description
-jfrog.url [Default: http://localhost:8081] JFrog platform URL.
-jfrog.user [Default: admin] JFrog platform username.
-jfrog.password [Default: password] JFrog platform password.
-jfrog.adminToken JFrog platform admin token.
-ci.runId [Optional] A unique identifier used as a suffix to create repositories and builds in the tests.

The types are:

Type Description
-test.artifactory Artifactory tests
-test.npm Npm tests
-test.maven Maven tests
-test.gradle Gradle tests
-test.docker Docker tests
-test.go Go tests
-test.pip Pip tests
-test.pipenv Pipenv tests
-test.nuget Nuget tests
-test.plugins Plugins tests
-test.distribution Distribution tests
-test.xray Xray tests
  • Running the tests will create builds and repositories with timestamps, for example: cli-rt1-1592990748 and cli-rt2-1592990748.
    Once the tests are completed, the content of these repositories will be deleted.

Using JFrog CLI

JFrog CLI can be used for a variety of functions with Artifactory, Xray and Mission Control, and has a dedicated set of commands for each product. To learn how to use JFrog CLI, please visit the JFrog CLI User Guide.

JFrog CLI Plugins

JFrog CLI plugins support enhancing the functionality of JFrog CLI to meet the specific user and organization needs. The source code of a plugin is maintained as an open source Go project on GitHub. All public plugins are registered in JFrog CLI's Plugins Registry, which is hosted in the jfrog-cli-plugins-reg GitHub repository. We encourage you, as developers, to create plugins and share them publically with the rest of the community. Read more about this in the JFrog CLI Plugin Developer Guide.
