Configuring Go

How to configure the Go package manager

This page explains how to configure the Go package manager to pull packages from the Seal artifact server based on your existing setup.

Make sure you have the access token for the server ready.

Pull directly from the global Go repository

The Go repository is saved in the GOPROXY environment variable.

Before building the project we must set:

GOPROXY="https://$PROJECT_ID:$,direct" go mod download
  1. In the $PROJECT_ID put the name of your project. This value will later be used in the reporting to indicate which project pulled which vulnerable package.

  2. In the $TOKEN we need to put the access token to the artifact server

Pull from JFrog's Artifactory

  1. Go to JFrog's Artifactory configuration and create a new remote Go repository.

    1. In the Basic configuration, choose whatever Repository Key you like.

    2. Set as the URL.

    3. In the User Name field use jfrog.

    4. In the Password / Access Token field paste the token you created earlier.

  2. Click the Test button. This will test whether the connection and authentication to the Seal artifact server is configured properly.

  3. Save the new repository, and set it as the top priority remote repository in the virtual repository you're using.
