Repository Manager 3

Welcome to the Nexus Repository 3 Online Help

Sonatype has discovered a critical bug that can cause cleanup policies to unintentionally delete binaries in Nexus Repository Pro deployments which use H2 or PostgreSQL. See our official advisory for detailed information about who is affected and suggested remediation steps.

Sonatype products are not vulnerable to the recently reported Apache Log4j2 security issues (CVE-2021-44228 and CVE-2021-45046). For detailed product-by-product information, please see Sonatype Product Log4j Vulnerability Status.

In response to the log4j vulnerability CVE-2021-44228 (also called "log4shell") impacting organizations world-wide, we are providing an experimental Log4j Visualizer capability to help our users identify log4shell downloads so that they can mitigate the impact. Check out the 3.37.3 Release Notes and our Log4j Visualizer documentation for more information!
