Repository Management with Nexus
6.14. Nexus Plugins and REST Interfaces
As documented in Section 20.1, “Installing Additional Plugins” Nexus is built as a collection of plugins supported by a core architecture and additional plugins can be installed.
You can use the Nexus Plugin Console to list all installed Nexus plugins and browse REST services made available by the installed plugins. To open the Nexus Plugin Console, click on the Plugin Console link in the Administration menuas shown in Figure 6.1, “Administration Menu in the Left Hand Panel”.
Once you open the Plugin Console, you will see a list of plugins installed in your Nexus installation. Clicking on a plugin in this list will display information about the plugin including name, version, status, a description, SCM information about the plugin, and the URL of the plugin’s project web site and links to the plugin documentation.
An example for the plugin documentation is the main documentation for the core Nexus API linked off the Nexus Restlet 1.x Plugin from Figure 6.43, “Plugin Console” and displayed in Figure 6.44, “Documentation Website for the Core API”
