Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6586) Allow proxy activation based on profile
Date Sat, 09 Feb 2019 11:15:00 GMT


Alon Bar-Lev commented on MNG-6586:

> how about activating a different settings with {{--settings,-s <arg>}} or {{--global-settings,-gs
<arg>}} ?


Had maven would have supported multiple settings, this would have been an option... I do not
mind to specify -gs gs.xml -s s.xml -s proxy.xml, however, as far as I know this is not possible.


The issue is that proxy (and mirrors) are environmental setting, and are set on top of the
build settings.


If we reopen the entire subject, it is unclear why the system setting proxy (via http*_proxy_*
is not honored by maven... this would have made usage so much easier... as you can notice
in MNG-6401, using environment variable is preferred method.

Configuration for different proxy profiles. Multiple proxy profiles might come in handy for
anyone working from a notebook or other mobile platform, to enable easy switching of entire
proxy configurations by simply specifying the profile id, again either from the command line
or from the defaults section below.|

> So it should be possible to enable/disable proxy based on a profile. However, there is
no instructions of how to do that.
> Adding <active>${property}</active> automatically disables the entry, even
if property is set to true, I verify this using help:effective-settings. I could not find
any property that can make any difference.
> I see many people have tried and failed, and based on the above documentation it seems
like either missing documentation or an actual bug.
> Please allow that, as multiple setting.xml are not supported and enable/disable proxy
is required for a single CI settings.xml.
