IQ Server Setup

Sonatype Repository Firewall is powered by Sonatype's IQ Server. This page walks through the necessary configuration options to quarantine components.

  • IQ Server

    • The artifact repository manager must be connected to the IQ Server

    • A license including Repository Firewall installed in the IQ Server

  • IQ Server role permissions

    • Ability to view and edit elements at the root organization. The built-in roles of 'Policy Administrator' and 'Owner' have these permissions

      For more information on assigning roles and permissions, see Role Management

Configure policy for proxy stage

Components that violate a policy set to Fail at the proxy stage in the Root Organization or Repositories will be quarantined and not made available for download.


Firewall blocks components from entering proxy repositories based on policies set at the Root Organization and Repositories in the IQ Server.

When configuring policy at Root Organization, the firewall only quarantines components for policies set to All Applications and Repositories

  1. Navigate to your IQ Server Dashboard

  2. Select Orgs and Policies

  3. Select a policy to govern Firewall's quarantine behavior

  4. Select the Fail radio button in the Proxy column under the Actions section
