Repository Connector Plugin
With the release of version
2.0.0 come the following changes, some of which may require jobs to be reconfigured, although none should cease to work outright.
- Jenkins >= 2.222.4 required
- Artifact deployment re-enabled
- Version resolution build parameters are required to have a name (possible breaking change)
- Separated repository and transfer logging into separate options
- Artifact resolution 'fail on error' can be specified per artifact
Credentials are now stored in and provided by the Credentials plugin. Any previously stored username/password combinations stored by the plugin configuration are migrated upon startup.
Aether Resolution / Deployment
The plugin has been updated to use the same underlying aether library as
maven itself. Artifact resolution policies are configured as part of the repository now instead of at the job level. It is also possible to specify individual deployment endpoints for
releases if you are using a repository manager.
During artifact resolution, only the artifact itself will be resolved. Prior versions of the plugin would attempt to resolve all transitive dependencies as well, but not install them into the local repository. This could lead to issues where resolution of the artifact itself would succeed but still result in failure because a dependency could not be found.
The plugin comes pre-configured with an entry for maven central that allows for immediate use. Select the
Maven Artifact Resolver option from the
Build Steps dropdown and and configure accordingly.

Maven Central Snapshots
If you are looking to resolve
SNAPSHOT versions from artifacts you would find on maven central, add a repository configuration that uses the following endpoint, with the
release policy disabled.
