Repository Management with Nexus
20.2. Nexus Outreach Plugin
The Nexus Outreach Plugin is installed by default in Nexus Open Source and Nexus Professional. It allocates space in the user interface left navigation and welcome page for linking to further documentation and support resources. This data is retrieved from Sonatype servers.
In a case where this outgoing traffic from your Nexus instance or the resulting documentation and links are not desired, the plugin can be disabled. The plugin can be disabled by disabling the advanced Outreach : Management capability in the Capabilities section found in the Administration left hand navigation menu.
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 Nexus instance.
