File permissions when importing repository


I’ve recently run a Repository Import task and things were going smoothly until I bumped with a “java.nio.file.AccessDeniedException” message when trying to import content.

Prior to that, the task was run free of errors with another source directory whose permissions were slightly different (less restrictive), so this is clearly a matter of permissions on that source. The question is what the specific permissions on the source directory are. A glimpse at the task log shows some prerequisites have to be met, but it doesn’t specify what they are.

Thanks for your help!

This is an OS level problem, your Nexus user needs read/write permissions to your import directory.
