Installation and Upgrade
Depending on which version of Nexus 3 you downloaded from the Sonatype website, you may need to run Talend scripts in Nexus to fully access its features with Talend Studio and Talend Administration Center.

Before you begin

The package delivered by Talend has been downloaded.


  1. In case of Nexus 3.22, enable the script related features by adding the following line to the file <NexusDataDirectory>/etc/ and restart Nexus to pick up the property change.
  2. Log into your Nexus 3 Repository Manager as an administrator.
  3. Click the icon in the header to access the Administration page.
  4. Select System > API from the menu tree.
  5. Scroll down to the script section and click POST.
  6. Locate the Talend scripts to Nexus.
    The scripts are located in the file under the migration-<version> folder in the archieve file in the package

    The file contains three JSON files:

    • healthCheck.json
    • repositoriesList.json
    • search.json
  7. Copy the content of the JSON file into the body field, then click Try it out to add a script.
    • If you are running Nexus 3.9, add all three scripts individually.
    • If you are running Nexus 3.15, 3.19.1 or 3.22, add only the search.json script.

      If you do not add the search.json script, the patches will not be detected and installed on the Talend Studio side, and you might experience synchronization issues between modules.

    For more information on managing and running scripts in Nexus 3, refer to Managing and Running Scripts on the Sonatype website.

  8. In case of Nexus 3.22, remove the line nexus.scripts.allowCreation=true added to the file <NexusDataDirectory>/etc/ to disable the script related features of Nexus after applying the script for security reason and restart Nexus to pick up the property change.
