Repository Management with Nexus - 2.12


Chapter 12. Repository Health Check

Available in Nexus Repository Manager OSS and Nexus Repository Manager

Repository Health Check is a feature of Nexus Repository Manager and Nexus Repository Manager OSS that integrates data from the Nexus IQ Data Services.

Repository health check provides access to a limited subset of the available data right in your repository manager. The Nexus IQ Data Services expose data about the components in the Central Repository and other public repositories, including license information, security vulnerability data, and other statistics like relative usage popularity and age. Repository health check allows you to examine the available security and license data about components in a repository.

Repository health check analyzes all components found in a proxy repository of any format. Maven 2 format repositories need to have a release policy configured. Availability of component meta data varies depending on the format and is constantly improved via updates to the Nexus IQ Data Services.

NuGet proxy repositories support Repository Health Check and identification of components is performed. Some license or security data is provided as well. Support for NPM repositories has similar restrictions.
