In this article we will learn to setup Jfrog with GitLab. After that we will build the nuget package and publish to Jfrog Artifactory.
What is Jfrog Artifactory
Package/Artifact Management tool. Its helps to store and share multiple version of Package/Artifact. Supports all the available package format, Like nuget,npm,maven,help etc..
Why we need Jfrog Artifactory
In some cases when you need to share the package/artifact with other teammates or Project Group.
Jfrog Artifactory with GitLab.
First we need to complete the configuration of Jfrog Antifactory with GitLab Runner.
Step 1: Login to Jfrog and Create Repository for your package type if that does not exist. In my case we created Repository of Nuget Package Type.
Step 2: Once the Repository created click on Set Me Up and select the package type. I will select Nuget in my case.
Step 3: Collect below info from the window. These command needs to run on the GitLab-Runner to setup the connection
This command needs to run once so that connection gets configured. We will run this through Pipeline not manually.
Step 4: Create below variables in GitLab CI/CD and use the value from above step.
Setup Build Pipeline
Now lets build one sample application and further we will create the package and publish to Jfrog Artifactory.
Step 1: Include the antifactory setup information received in pervious step in pipeline. See for Example.
Note: Make sure the nuget is installed on GitLab Runner.
- nuget sources Add -Name Artifactory -Source $JFROGSource -username $JFROGUsername -password $JFROGPassword - nuget setapikey$JFROGUsername:$JFROGPassword -Source Artifactory
Step 2: Complete pipeline with example.
stages: - build - package - deploy build-job: stage: build tags: - "windows-runner" script: - nuget sources Add -Name Artifactory -Source $JFROGSource -username $JFROGUsername -password $JFROGPassword - nuget setapikey $JFROGUsername:$JFROGPassword -Source Artifactory - dotnet build $CI_PROJECT_DIR\BuildNugetPackage.sln /p:Configuration="Release" - cd $CI_PROJECT_DIR - nuget pack -properties version=1.0.2 - nuget push DeployPackage.1.0.2.nupkg -Source Artifactory
Step 3: Run the Pipeline.
Step 4: After successful execution we can comment nuget add sources. Since it is one time activity. The connection gets saved to GitLab-Runner.
Validate the Package
On successful execution you can see the package publish to Jfrog Antifactory.
dotnet nuget list source --> List all the Nuget Sources dotnet nuget remove source <Name> --> Remove the Source with Name
