Push or promote package versions

How to push or promote a package version to upstream or registry

The push functionality allows users to either:

  • Push existing package versions to a configured upstream
  • Promote a package version to new version, without making any changes to the artifact itself

When promoting to a new version, you can also push the package to the current registry.

Promote package version, instead of rebuilding
Select a well tested development version and promote it to a release version. By not rebuilding a package, users can avoid common error causes like differences between production and development build chains.


1. Select the package version to push from the source registry and click Push button.
