Other settings to consider

If you are migrating packages and setting up Cloudsmith for the first time, you may need to consider other tasks when getting started, including:

  • Update your build tools and configurations to push/pull to the new Cloudsmith endpoints. You may have a configuration file for every package format in your code base, you will find information on how to set up Cloudsmith for each format here.
  • Setup your Single Sign-On and Group Mapping instructions if this is your preferred way to log in to your users.
  • Setup your upstreams, which will set up Cloudsmith to fetch and cache your 3rd party dependencies hosted on public repositories like NuGet Gallery, RubyGems.org or Maven Central.
  • Setup signing keys.
  • Setup your service accounts.
  • Setup your logs export to s3.
  • If you are a distributor, you may want to set up Entitlement tokens to distribute to 3rd parties
  • Setup Custom Domains, which allow you to present your brand and domain when distributing from Cloudsmith.
