Make Chef Supermarket THE Artifact Repository and Source

Currently, Chef maintains artifacts at multiple points of storage:

  • Chef Supermarket - for the "full" Cookbook, InSpec Profiles
  • Chef Infra Server - Can store cookbooks + InSpec Profiles
  • Habitat Depot - for .hart files


It would be very beneficial, and make things much simpler if we could have ONE artifact repository to deliver all Chef artifacts to, and then configure Chef products to communicate with that single repository vs. multiple points of storage.

Ideally, this would be a mature product like Chef Supermarket, and functionality would be added that allows it to work properly with other Chef products in a direct manner.

    Implementation via existing artifact provider vendors, such as Artifactory would be amazing too.
