Sonatype Nexus Repository Valuable Features

The most important feature of Nexus Repository Manager is the storing and sharing of components. For Nexus IQ, it's the scanning of projects and the rating of vulnerabilities and license violations that we may have in our products. We have been using the two solutions two for several years now and we are quite satisfied with the data quality provided by the products. View full review »

For us, the ability to do proxying and federations of repositories is very important. It gives us flexibility. We are among the largest physics research laboratory in the world. With thousands of developers, we need to have good solutions to federate our teams. Those are the perfect features for us, the ability to proxy and to federate. It also has very good enterprise integration, so we are able to integrate it with the rest of our infrastructure for authentication, for role management. That is very useful. View full review »

The first good feature is the searching capability. They have recently really improved it. When I started using it, their search was quite slow. They have improved in that area very effectively, and I really like it. The second valuable feature is that in a single tool we are managing multiple central repositories. The more support we have, the more the tool will be effective because we are able to manage multiple requirements from multiple domains in a single tool. Initially, when I started using this tool, I was mainly using it for Java. Then I onboarded .NET, then I onboarded JS. And about six or eight months back, I onboarded Python. And I am about to onboard Docker. The availability of integrations allows me to do this. Of course, we use this solution to manage binaries, build artifacts, and release candidates across the DevOps pipeline. I can't say how our company is doing so, that's company information, but we are using it to manage artifacts across our pipeline, starting from the lower environment and ending in production.

The core features are the most important: We can host libraries, upload them, and they can be used across multiple teams. The hosted repository is the primary feature we're using. View full review »

One of the most valuable features is the variety of permissions you can use on the repository. That helps us protect access to the information inside of the repository. View full review »
