Short Description
Run Artifactory OSS (or Pro) inside a Docker container.
Full Description


Run Artifactory inside a Docker container.

Link: mattgruter/artifactory


Artifactories data, logs and backup directories are exported as volumes:



The web server is accessible through port 8080.


To run artifactory do:

docker run -p 8080:8080 mattgruter/artifactory

Now point your browser to http://localhost:8080


The artifactory servlet is available at the artifactory/ path. However a filter redirects all paths outside of artifactory/ to the artifactory servlet. Thus instead of linking to the URL http://localhost:8080/artifactory/libs-release-local you can just link to http://localhost:8080/libs-release-local (i.e. omitting the subpath artifactory/).

Runtime options

Inject the environment variable RUNTIME_OPTS when starting a container to set Tomcat's runtime options (i.e. CATALANA_OPTS). The most common use case is to set the heap size:

docker run -e RUNTIME_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx512m" -P mattgruter/artifactory

Switching to Artifactory Pro

If you are using Artifactory Pro, the artifactory war archive has to be replaced. The image tagged -onbuild is built with an ONBUILD trigger for this purpose. Unpack the Artifactory Pro distribution ZIP file and place the file artifactory.war (located in the archive) in the same directory as a simple Dockerfile that extends the onbuild image:

# Dockerfile for Artifactory Pro
FROM mattgruter/artifactory:latest-onbuild

Now build your child docker image:

docker build -t yourname/myartifactory .

The ONBUILD trigger ensures your artifactory.war is picked up and applied to the image upon build.

docker run -P yourname/myartifactory
