  2. Add the execution rights to the relevant files by running the following command:
    chmod 755
  3. From the <ApplicationFolder>/bin folder, launch the Talend Artifact Repository instance using the following command:
    ./nexus run
    Nexus runs in the console.
  4. To run Talend Artifact Repository as a service, follow the procedure of the Nexus documentation at
  5. Log into the Talend Artifact Repository Web application (default login information: admin/Talend123). Make sure you have the relevant rights to access the release and snapshot repositories.

    2. Right-click the admin user and select Set Password.
    3. Enter a new password for the admin user.
  2. Grant browse permissions on the repositories talend-custom-libs-release and talend-custom-libs-snapshot to the user talend-updates-admin.
    1. In the left panel of the Talend Artifact Repository Web application, select Security > Roles.
    2. On the top of the right panel, click Create role > Nexus role to open the Create Role view.
    3. Create a role nx-view-custom-libs-browse and assign privileges nx-repository-view-maven2-talend-custom-libs-release-browse and nx-repository-view-maven2-talend-custom-libs-snapshot-browse to it.
    4. In the left panel of the Talend Artifact Repository Web application, select Security > Users.
    5. Click the user talend-updates-admin to open its details view.
    6. Edit the user by assigning the newly created role nx-view-custom-libs-browse to it.
    7. Execute the following commands in Curl or Postman to validate the permissions assigned to the user talend-updates-admin, where <password> represents the password of the user and <nexus_url> represents the URL of the Talend Artifact Repository Web application.
      # Search talend-custom-libs-release
      curl -k -u "talend-updates-admin:<password>" "<nexus_url>/service/rest/v1/search?repository=talend-custom-libs-release&group=xml-apis"
      # Search talend-custom-libs-snapshot
      curl -k -u "talend-updates-admin:<password>" "<nexus_url>/service/rest/v1/search?repository=talend-custom-libs-snapshot&group=org.talend.libraries"

      The corresponding items should be returned in the result.
