Subject Rights management for Proxy Connectors
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2007 16:56:58 GMT

Hello all,

is it possible to configure Archiva in a way, that access to repo1 through a
proxy connector is available only for a few super users (= repository

In my scenario, normal users should only be able to access the artifacts
available in the internal repository. In case they need a new artifact from
repo1, they ask the repository manager to add it. The repository manager
checks whether the artifact complies to e.g. company licensing rules,
whether the metadata on repo1 is ok (which is mostly but not always the
case), and so on. If everything is ok, he downloads the artifact including
all dependencies. Afterwards the artifact should be available to everybody
inside the company.

The repository observer role seems to allow access to the proxied
repositories as well, right?
