Creating repositories, groups etc. via REST API in Nexus 3


Hi there,

I want to know if I can leverage the REST API as it was in nexus 2 so that I can create repositories, perform configuration in the repository etc. remotely. By googling I wasn’t yet able to find information. Help, anyone?



Hey Fred,

Check out the documentation for all the API options here: REST and Integration API

Let us know if you need anymore help around these.




Hi Nick,

thanks for responding. I can’t find API for changing user credentials, or admin password, or creating new repositories and so on programmatically. Is this no longer possible with nexus 3?



You can use the scripting API for those use cases. See here:
