Dash in group name

I know the Java package naming rules forbid the use of dashes in the package name, but does NXRM3 do the same? I have artifacts in an NXRM2 repository with a dash in the group name. We’ve upgraded proxies to NXRM3 and now I keep getting 401 errors attempting to upload the artifact when I know the credentials are correctly specified. I’ve seen the 401 error before when the artifact already exists in a release repository but I’m seeing the 401 for both release and snapshot artifacts.

A quick test shows that at least the UI upload will allow for dashes in the group or artifact id. I suspect it will work as long as the maven client doesn’t block it. There should be something in the nexus.log providing more details about the error if it’s something beyond a simple authentication failure.
