How to install third party plugins in Nexus 3.15.2-01


Recently we have upgraded from the Nexus 2.0 to Nexus 3.15.2-01 , for enabling the replication feature of artifacts among different nexus servers, I came across a good plugin nexus-replication-plugin/ at master · griddynamics/nexus-replication-plugin · GitHub
but when i am trying to follow the instructions I can’t figure where are the equivalent directories
$NEXUS_HOME/sonatype-work/nexus/plugin-repository and $NEXUS_HOME/sonatype-work/nexus/conf are in my installation , i can see there is nexus_home/sonatype-work/nexus3/orient/plugins which might be the directory where plugin sources need to be copied but where should I copy the configuration.


Judging from the POM of that project it was written for Nexus 2.x and the two code bases are different enough its unlikely to work without significant modification.
