Multiple Feeds & Groups

ProGet supports configuring multiple feeds, and optionally grouping those feeds into Feed Groups.

Multiple Feeds

The primary benefit of using multiple feeds is package organization. In theory, you could put everything into a single feed, but there are millions of packages out there, and maintaining them in one feed can becoming overwhelming very quickly.

You can organize package feeds in a variety of ways. For instance, you may want to segment your feeds by the groups or teams that should be using them. This can help a team focus on only the packages they need without being burdened by packages that they don't.

Another way to organize feeds is by quality (Untested, Production-ready, etc.). Configurations like security and storage can also be a determining factor on how to organize your various feeds. ProGet allows you to place Security and Access Controls to feeds and give teams different access to different feeds. For example, perhaps you'll only want Lead Engineers to be able to publish packages to the Production Feed.

Feed Groups

Starting in ProGet v6, feeds may be placed into different a feed group, which can help by:

  • Visually grouping related applications in the user interface
  • Simplifying permissions across all feeds in the group
  • Allow creation of feeds in a particular group

Feed groups can be created from the manage feed page, by typing in the name of a group that doesn't exist. You can also configure feeds and their groups under Admin > Feed Groups.
