JFrog Artifactory Integration

JFrog Artifactory Integration

January 24, 20204

Use Coder and JFrog Artifactory together to secure your development environments without disturbing your developers' existing workflows.

This guide will demonstrate how to use JFrog Artifactory as a package registry within a workspace.

Requirements

  • A JFrog Artifactory instance
  • 1:1 mapping of users in Coder to users in Artifactory by email address or username
  • Repositories configured in Artifactory for each package manager you want to use

Provisioner Authentication

The most straight-forward way to authenticate your template with Artifactory is by using our official Coder modules. We publish two type of modules that automate the JFrog Artifactory and Coder integration.

  1. JFrog-OAuth
  2. JFrog-Token

JFrog-OAuth

This module is usable by JFrog self-hosted (on-premises) Artifactory as it requires configuring a custom integration. This integration benefits from Coder's external-auth feature and allows each user to authenticate with Artifactory using an OAuth flow and issues user-scoped tokens to each user.

To set this up, follow these steps:

  1. Modify your Helm chart values.yaml for JFrog Artifactory to add,
artifactory:
  enabled: true
  frontend:
  extraEnvironmentVariables:
    - name: JF_FRONTEND_FEATURETOGGLER_ACCESSINTEGRATION
      value: "true"
  access:
  accessConfig:
    integrations-enabled: true
    integration-templates:
      - id: "1"
        name: "CODER"
        redirect-uri: "https://CODER_URL/external-auth/jfrog/callback"
        scope: "applied-permissions/user"

Note Replace CODER_URL with your Coder deployment URL, e.g., <coder.example.com>

  1. Create a new Application Integration by going to https://JFROG_URL/ui/admin/configuration/integrations/new and select the Application Type as the integration you created in step 1.

JFrog Platform new integration

  1. Add a new external authentication to Coder by setting these env variables,
# JFrog Artifactory External Auth
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_ID="jfrog"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_TYPE="jfrog"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_CLIENT_ID="YYYYYYYYYYYYYYY"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_CLIENT_SECRET="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_DISPLAY_NAME="JFrog Artifactory"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_DISPLAY_ICON="/icon/jfrog.svg"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_AUTH_URL="https://JFROG_URL/ui/authorization"
CODER_EXTERNAL_AUTH_1_SCOPES="applied-permissions/user"

Note Replace JFROG_URL with your JFrog Artifactory base URL, e.g., <example.jfrog.io>

  1. Create or edit a Coder template and use the JFrog-OAuth module to configure the integration.
module "jfrog" {
  source = "registry.coder.com/modules/jfrog-oauth/coder"
  version = "1.0.0"
  agent_id = coder_agent.example.id
  jfrog_url = "https://jfrog.example.com"
  configure_code_server = true # this depends on the code-server
  username_field = "username" # If you are using GitHub to login to both Coder and Artifactory, use username_field = "username"
  package_managers = {
    "npm": "npm",
    "go": "go",
    "pypi": "pypi"
  }
}

JFrog-Token

This module makes use of the Artifactory terraform provider and an admin-scoped token to create user-scoped tokens for each user by matching their Coder email or username with Artifactory. This can be used for both SaaS and self-hosted(on-premises) Artifactory instances.

To set this up, follow these steps:

  1. Get a JFrog access token from your Artifactory instance. The token must be an admin token with scope applied-permissions/admin.
  2. Create or edit a Coder template and use the JFrog-Token module to configure the integration and pass the admin token. It is recommended to store the token in a sensitive terraform variable to prevent it from being displayed in plain text in the terraform state.
variable "artifactory_access_token" {
  type      = string
  sensitive = true
}

module "jfrog" {
  source = "registry.coder.com/modules/jfrog-token/coder"
  version = "1.0.0"
  agent_id = coder_agent.example.id
  jfrog_url = "https://example.jfrog.io"
  configure_code_server = true # this depends on the code-server
  artifactory_access_token = var.artifactory_access_token
  package_managers = {
    "npm": "npm",
    "go": "go",
    "pypi": "pypi"
  }
}
The admin-level access token is used to provision user tokens and is never exposed to developers or stored in workspaces.

If you do not want to use the official modules, you can check example template that uses Docker as the underlying compute here. The same concepts apply to all compute types.

Offline Deployments

See the offline deployments section for instructions on how to use coder-modules in an offline environment with Artifactory.
