Nexus3 Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status

This cookbook installs and configures Sonatype Nexus 3 Repository Manager OSS according to https://books.sonatype.com/nexus-book/reference3/install.html

Usage

Use the nexus3 resource to download and install the latest Nexus 3 Repository Manager OSS.

Use the nexus3_api resource to configure Nexus 3 Repository Manager via its REST API.

Use the nexus3_repo resource to configure Nexus 3 repositories.

Use the nexus3_group resource to configure Nexus 3 repository groups.

Use the nexus3_user resource to configure Nexus 3 users.

Use the nexus3_realm resource to handle realm activation.

Requirements

  • Chef 12.14.34+
  • ark cookbook
    • Note: include_recipe 'ark' is required for Windows servers, as it is not implicit.
  • Java 8+ from Oracle or OpenJDK (not installed, pick your own)

Platforms

  • CentOS, RedHat, Fedora
  • Debian, Ubuntu
  • Windows

Recipes

default

Downloads and installs the latest Nexus 3 Repository Manager OSS.

Attributes

  • node['nexus3']['version'] - The version of Nexus 3 to download. Default 3.2.1-01.
  • node['nexus3']['url'] - The download URL of Nexus 3 Repository Manager. This can be a specific version of Nexus Repository Manager OSS or Nexus Repository Manager Pro. Default http://download.sonatype.com/nexus/3/nexus-3.2.1-01-unix.tar.gz.
  • node['nexus3']['checksum'] (optional) - The checksum of Nexus Repository Manager. Default nil.
  • node['nexus3']['path'] - Install directory. Default Linux: /opt Windows: #{ENV['SYSTEMDRIVE']}.
  • node['nexus3']['data'] - Data directory. Default #{node['nexus3']['path']}/sonatype-work/nexus3.
  • node['nexus3']['home'] - Link to install directory. Default #{node['nexus3']['path']}/nexus3.
  • node['nexus3']['properties_variables'] - A Hash of variables that are passed into a template file. Default { host: '0.0.0.0', port: '8081', args: '${jetty.etc}/jetty.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-http.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-requestlog.xml', context_path: '/' }.
  • node['nexus3']['vmoptions_variables'] - A Hash of variables that are passed into a template file. Note that data directory will be injected into the hash if it is not defined. Default { Xms: '1200M', Xmx: '1200M' }.
  • node['nexus3']['nofile_limit'] - Limit of open files available for the Nexus3 service in systemd. Default 65,536 as suggested by the Sonatype documentation on newer releases.

Examples

Changing the HTTP Port and/or Context Path

The default value for the HTTP port used to access the repository manager user interface and resources is 8081. To change HTTP Port to 8443, Context Path to /components/ and serve HTTPS directly set the properties_variables hash with the updated settings:

include_recipe 'java_se'

node.default['nexus3']['properties_variables'] = { port: '8443', args: '${jetty.etc}/jetty.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-https.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-requestlog.xml', context_path: '/components/' }
include_recipe 'nexus3'

Updating Memory Allocation and other JVM Paramaters

The default and maximum heap sizes for the repository manager are a value of 1200 MB, suitable for most usage patterns. To install latest nexus3 with 1500 MB initial memory and 2 GB max memory, set it in the vmoptions_variables:

include_recipe 'java_se'

node.default['nexus3']['vmoptions_variables'] = { Xms1500M: nil, Xmx2G: nil }
include_recipe 'nexus3'

The vmoptions_variables attributes are mapped to JVM options -<key>=<value> if a value is defined. If <value> is nil, the option becomes -<key>.

Resources

Properties common to all resources using the Nexus3 API

api_client - A ::Nexus3::Api instance. Default is configured using following nexus3.api attributes: endpoint, username & password

nexus3

Downloads and installs the latest Nexus Repository Manager OSS v3.

Actions

  • :install - Default. Downloads and installs the latest Nexus Repository Manager OSS v3.

Since the installation is resource-based, you can install different Nexus3 instances on the same node. Make sure to specify different home and data directories, as well as different port numbers.

Attributes

  • instance_name - Name of service. Default value is the name of the resource block.
  • nexus3_user - The owner of nexus3. Creates a nexus user with the value passed in. Default node['nexus3']['user'].
  • nexus3_group - The group of nexus3. Creates a nexus group with the value passed in. Default node['nexus3']['group'].
  • version - Version of Nexus3 to install. Default node['nexus3']['version']
  • url - The download URL of latest Nexus 3 Repository Manager OSS. This can be updated to download a specific version of Nexus Repository Manager OSS or Nexus Repository Manager Pro. Default node['nexus3']['url'].
  • checksum (optional) - The checksum of Nexus Repository Manager. Default node['nexus3']['checksum'].
  • data - Data directory. Default node['nexus3']['data'].
  • path - Install directory. Default node['nexus3']['path'].
  • nexus3_home - Link to install directory. Default node['nexus3']['home'].
  • service_name - Name of service used for the system service manager (systemd or other). Defaults to instance_name.
  • properties_variables - A Hash of variables that are passed into a template file. Default node['nexus3']['properties_variables'].
  • vmoptions_variables - A Hash of variables that are passed into a template file. Note that data directory will be injected into the hash if it is not defined. Default node['nexus3']['vmoptions_variables'].

Examples

Changing the HTTP Port and/or Context Path and/or HTTP vs HTTPS

The default value for the HTTP port used to access the repository manager user interface and resources is 8081. To change HTTP Port to 8443, Context Path to /components/ and serve HTTPS directly, set the properties_variables hash with the updated settings:

include_recipe 'java_se'

nexus3 'nexus' do
  properties_variables(
    host: '0.0.0.0',
    port: '8443',
    args: '${jetty.etc}/jetty.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-https.xml,${jetty.etc}/jetty-requestlog.xml',
    context_path: '/components/'
  )
  action :install
end

Updating Memory Allocation and other JVM Paramaters

The default and maximum heap sizes for the repository manager are a value of 1200M, suitable for most usage patterns. To install latest nexus3 with 1500M initial memory and 2G max memory, set it in the vmoptions_variable:

include_recipe 'java_se'

nexus3 'nexus' do
  vmoptions_variables(
    Xms: '1500M',
    Xmx: '2G'
  )
  action :install
end
