Maven 2 repository "Strict Content Type Validation" does not allow deployment of Android Bundles

I am using version OSS 3.29.2-02 of Nexus Repository Manager and have previously checked the option “Strict Content Type Validation” and it has worked well for deploying the old APK format. But when switching to the new preferred publishing format for Android applications called “Android App Bundle” (.aab) the deployment fails.

After unchecking “Strict Content Type Validation” I could successfully deploy .aab files.

Is this a known issue?

I am not allowed to create issues in Dev - Nexus Repo - Sonatype JIRA

Reference:

I don’t think that is a known issue. Can you try to create an issue for it again? The problem with htat should be fixed now.

Thanks, reported now: https://issues.sonatype.org/browse/NEXUS-26556
