Subject [jira] Commented: (ARCHETYPE-204) Add option to use remote repositories that are password protected
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 08:49:45 GMT


Javier Diaz commented on ARCHETYPE-204:

I managed to run the command against an authenticated repository creating an entry in settings
file with id <archetype-name>-repo. Detailed steps:

1. Add an entry in settings.xml file:
      <id><archetype name>-repo</id>

2. Run the generate command:
mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=mygroup \
  -DarchetypeArtifactId=<archetype-name> \
  -DarchetypeVersion=XXXXX \
  -DartifactId=dummy \
  -Dversion=1.0.0-SNAPSHOT \
  -DarchetypeRepository= \

And that did the trick.

I couldn't find any documentation of this. You can take a look at the class DefaultArchetypeGenerationConfigurator.

Plugin version: 2.0-alpha-4
