Name

The unique name for this Connector.

ID

See Entity Identifier Reference.

Description

Text string.

Tags

See Tags Reference.

Nexus Repository URL

The URL that you use to connect to your Nexus server. For example, https://nexus3.dev.mycompany.io.

Version

The Version field in the dialog lists the supported Nexus version, 3.x.

For Nexus 3.x, Harness supports only the Docker repository format as the artifact source.

Credentials

The username and password for the Nexus account.

The password uses a Harness Encrypted Text secret.

Nexus Artifact Details

Repository URL

The URL you would use in the Docker login to fetch the artifact. This is the same as the domain name and port you use for docker login hostname:port.

Repository Port

The port you use for docker login hostname:port. As a best practice, include the scheme and port. For example https://your-repo:443. If you cannot locate the scheme, you may omit it, for example your-repo:18080.

For more information, see Docker Repository Configuration and Client Connection and Using Nexus 3 as Your Repository – Part 3: Docker Images from Sonatype.
