Nexus3 yum proxy repodata force refresh

Noticed multiple times that yum proxy repository not refreshing metadata (repodata) that was updated on remote side (Invalidate cache, rebuild index didnt help)
to solve it is possible:

  • to recreate whole proxy repo
  • via UI browse to repodata/repomd.xml and press “delete asset”

but is it possible to do same via cli / api ?
as per documentation: curl with DELETE option returns 404, and also REST search not showing repodata

curl -v -u ${NEXUS_USER}:${NEXUS_PASSWORD} -X DELETE ${NEXUS_URL}/${REPO_NAME}/repodata/repomd.xml
