    Hello
    We're hosting Automic on Kubernetes locally on our own Rancher v2.5 cluster and we need to use our own local repository.  This isn't covered in the guide so here's how to do it.

    Get the software download key from Broadcom.
    Open Artifactory as an administrator, create a new remote docker repository, name it automic_cgr_io or something suitable
    Set the URL to https;//cgr.io
    Set remote authentication to _json_key
    Copy the entire contents of the download key from Broadcom into the password field
    Ensure Enable Token Authentication is checked
    Add the new remote repository to your virtual docker repository - eg docker.artifactory.my_company.com

    Change the values file to point at your Artifactory repository.  I had to overide each entry here in the values file, perhaps there is a better way

     repository:
        location: docker.artifactory.my_company.com/esd-automic-saas/automic/component/release/ae/
    

    after this I was able to deploy to our cluster.  I'm using ArgoCD to install the Helm chart.  I don't have it fully working yet, I might create another thread for that issue.
