This Admin guide is for version 2023.04.0-6 of Posit Package Manager.

RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

Package Manager organizes and centralizes data science packages across your team, department, or the entire organization.

Traditionally, packages enter the organization from a variety of sources including, but not limited to:

  • CRAN
  • PyPI
  • Bioconductor
  • GitHub
  • Internally developed package sources

Package Manager empowers users to access packages and reproduce environments while giving IT control and visibility into package use. This guide will help an administrator install and configure Package Manager on a managed server.

For minimum system requirement or installation information, see the Posit documentation pages.


There is a left-hand navigation pane that displays the chapters and subchapters that are in this administrator guide. Some chapters contain subchapters that may not initially display when navigating this guide. To expand a chapter's subchapters, simply click the title of the chapter. If there are no subchapters within the chapter, then clicking the chapter title does not display any subchapters.
