Custom Quarantine Messages

Configure Repository Firewall to provide a custom quarantine message when a component request fails a Firewall policy. This message is included in the command line output along with the default Firewall quarantine messages.

  • Provide instructions on how to respond when components are quarantined during their builds.

  • Using up to 500 characters the custom messages may contain a URL pointing to internal instructions

  • For Repository Firewall release 165 or greater using Nexus Repository Pro version 3.58 or greater
