Understanding API usage

Suggest edit
Updated on December 13, 2021

When you use repository APIs to interact with Nexus Repository Manager 3, note the following information:

  • Sonatype Nexus Repository Manager 3 does not support the create folder API (D_pxNewFolder), because the repository cannot have empty folders.
  • The create file API (D_pxNewFile) and get file API (D_pxGetFile) support only Basic Authentication and support a file size of up to 5 GB.
  • The delete API (D_pxDelete) does not work on folders, only files. If all the files in a folder are deleted, the folder is also deleted.
