Cannot get Nexus + Maven + SoapUI Repo to work



We're trying to setup the SoapUI Maven2 repo as a proxy in our Nexus server.


Works with, we can browse the index or file store.


But, using does not let us to browse index or files.


We're using this guide:


Maven 3.2+ and Nexus 2.8.1-01.


Anyone got any tips?

  • Hi ,



    Have anyone got this working? I am also facing the similar issue.


    I am able to access(using wget) all the libraries ( manually from the linux server (where my Sonatype Nexus 2.7.2-03 is installaed)like below:


    # wget --proxy=on
    --2015-11-05 12:54:20--
    Resolving <ProxyIP>
    Connecting to|<ProxyIP>|:<ProxyPortNumber>... connected.
    Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
    Length: 7946 (7.8K) [text/html]
    Saving to: âindex.html.5â

    100%[============================================================================================================================>] 7,946 37.7K/s in 0.2s

    2015-11-05 12:54:21 (37.7 KB/s) - âindex.html.5â


     Once confirmed that I am able to access this url using my proxy from the server, I tried to configure the same as  a proxy repository in Nexus.


    Though I am able to quite a few jar files using "Browse Index" but, I am not getting "Browse Remote" and "Browse Storage" properly  in Nexus UI.

    Please find attached the screen shot for "Browse Index" , "Browse Remote" ,"Browse Storage" and "Routing".


    Also I am getting "No scraper was able to scrape remote (or remote prevents scraping)." error message under Discovery on the "Routing " tab.


    I am after "" link and want the jars under this to be setup as proxy repository in Nexus, but it is not coming/reflecting in "Browse Remote" tab.


    Any help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

      I have also problems configuring the smart bear repo in our nexus. Is it possible, that only artirfacts with an .sha1 or .md5 file are accessible?

        I'm wondering if this project is still alive. I haven't seen responses from SmartBear to some of these critical configuration problems for months.
