Update Nexus Maven repository "version policy"

Hello, we are using Nexus OSS 3.29.2-02 and have an existing Maven 2 hosted repository with a version policy of “Release”. We would like to update it to allow snapshots as well but I do not see a way to change the version policy to Mixed. Is this possible?

If it is not possible to change the version policy on an existing repository, is it possible to create a new mixed repository and migrate all content from the existing one to new?


If you’re a Nexus Pro users you should have options to move repository content. If not, there isn’t a way aside from downloading & re-uploading content.

Just in-case you aren’t aware - a group repository can contain both snapshot and release repositories, this can allow you to expose only a single repository for consumption but keep the your snapshot & releases in distinct repositories.
