I’ve been running Sonatype Nexus Repository Manager version 3.12 to manage built artifacts. When the artifacts are uploaded to the Nexus, they are set the mime type of application/octet-stream. this is good and what I expected.
I upgrade my nexus to 3.16, now all my artifacts are being uploaded as mime type text/plain. THis makes it VERY hard to download the files. There is no WEB_INF directory, so the documentation to set mime types is invalid (as outlined here: Overriding or changing default MIME types for artifact downloads – Sonatype Support)
How do I set up version 3.16 to default to application/octet-stream like the version 3.12 did by default?
Also, the API changed without a major version update which BROKE many of my integrations!
