Package Move

We provide two ways to move a package from one repository to another:

  • Move via the API using tools/integrations (such as the Cloudsmith CLI)
  • Move via the website UI.

Move via the Cloudsmith CLI

Identify a Package

To move a package using the Cloudsmith CLI, you first need to identify the package you wish to move. See Package Identification for full instructions on identifying packages.

Move a Package

Once you have identified the package, you use the cloudsmith move command to move it:


For example:

cloudsmith move demo/examples-repo-public/IGgZrwGFAkyU examples-repo

In the above example, we identified that the package we wished to move had the UniqueID "IGgZrwGFAkyU", and we moved it from the source repository "examples-repo-public" to the destination repository "examples-repo":

  • Via the repository packages list
  • Via the package detail page
