Jenkins CI Plugin to add metadata information to artifacts
Latest commit 01eb71b May 21, 2013 @marcelbirkner Update


This Jenkins Plugin adds additional metadata to artifacts that are deployed to Nexus repository (Sonatype). It makes use of features from Nexus Professional.

This source code is part of a tutorial that you can find here:

cd nexus-metadata-plugin
mvn clean package


  • Jenkins CI Server
  • Nexus Pro (Sonatype)
  • Nexus Metadata Plugin

Maven Dependencies

After unpacking Nexus Pro you should find the nexus-custom-metadata-plugin-2.0.6.jar file under the optional-plugins. Take that JAR file and add it to your local Maven Repository or to your Nexus installation.

  • Directory: nexus-professional-trial-2.0.6-bundle\nexus-professional-trial-2.0.6\nexus\WEB-INF\optional-plugins\nexus-custom-metadata-plugin-2.0.6\nexus-custom-metadata-plugin-2.0.6\
mvn install:install-file 

(05/2013): The latest versions of Nexus do not have the nexus-custom-metadata-plugin Jar file any more. Please use Nexus Pro version 2.0.6 in case you want to try out this source code.
