Repository stores specific values of an artifact, different for various artifact's classes, and artifact themselves. Artifacts are archived with a special attribute named md5hash. To learn more about artifacts visit archivist-package.


For each artifact, md5hash is a unique string of length 32 that is produced by digest function which uses a cryptographical MD5 hash algorithm. The md5hash of each artifact that is archived in the Repository is also saved on the Repository along with the artifact's Tags - see Tags. It enables to distinguish artifacts in the Repository and facilitates searching and loading them.
