6.8. Configuring Outreach Content in Welcome Tab

Available in Nexus Repository Manager OSS and Nexus Repository Manager

The Outreach Plugin is installed and enabled by default in Nexus Repository Manager OSS and Nexus Repository Manager. It allocates space underneath the search feature on the Welcome tab for linking to further documentation and support resources. This data is retrieved from Sonatype servers.

In a case where this outgoing traffic from your repository manager instance or the resulting documentation and links are not desired, the plugin can be disabled. The plugin can be disabled in the settings for the Outreach:Management capability as documented in Section 6.6, “Accessing and Configuring Capabilities”.

You can safely remove the plugin as well without any other negative side effects. To do so, simply remove the nexus-outreach-plugin-X.Y.Z folder in $NEXUS_HOME/nexus/WEB-INF/plugin-repository/ and restart your repository manager instance.
