Importing vanilla zip files

slmingol
I'm new to Artifactory Pro and am confused as to whether I can install/store vanilla zip files that contain whatever content I want, or if I'm restricted to only being able to store specific types of artifacts (Ant, Maven, Ivy, RPMs, etc) within Artifactory?

I have several ElasticSearch plugins that I'd like to maintain within Artifactory but it's unclear to me whether  I can do this or not, and also how I'd go about accomplishing this.

Hi there,

you should be able to store whatever you like in a Generic repository, and handle it any way you want.  At one level Artifactory is just an HTTP-accessible file store.

You can also store ZIP files in an Ivy or Maven repository and pull them down with tools like Ivy, Maven, or Gradle.  For that you work, you have to follow certain conventions about paths (or, configure the tools to know about your conventions) and publish the relevant XML metadata.

(In fact, you can store any kind of file in any repo, but there's no point storing files in a non-standard way in anything other than a Generic repo, because it doesn't buy you anything.  See the "Wrong Package Type" warning box in the section https://www.jfrog.com/confluence/display/RTF/Configuring+Repositories#ConfiguringRepositories-SinglePackageType.)
