Enable authentication for Aptly repositories

Enable authentication for Aptly repositories

This section describes how to enable authentication for Aptly repositories. In this case, access to Aptly API is restricted to anonymous users and granted through <aptly_user>:<aptly_user_password>.

Prior to enabling authentication, configure it through the installed proxy service such as NGINX or HAProxy:

  • If Aptly is running on the offline node or in the non-Swarm mode, configure authentication through NGINX.

  • Starting from the MCP 2019.2.7 maintenance update, if Aptly is running on the cid nodes, configure authentication through HAProxy.
