Subject [jira] Commented: (MRM-489) Repositories are read only even for repository managers
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2007 19:06:11 GMT


Joakim Erdfelt commented on MRM-489:

If you are using maven / wagon to deploy to the archiva repository, please be aware that,
by default the repositories are intentionally read-only and secure.

To enable the ability to write to the repository you must grant the "Repository Manager" roles
to the authenticated users that you wish to have that ability.
Or you can grant the "Repository Manager" role to the Guest user and have that repository
be available to all unauthenticated clients.


_(Aside, if you are using native OSX webdav clients)_
This is a known issue with OSX native webdav clients.
The OSX client is broken and attempts to set WebDAV lvl 2 locks on a advertised WebDAV lvl
1 repository.

The Apache Jackrabbit and Apache Slide webdav servers have hacks for OSX native clients to
undo the boneheaded locking it insists on doing against the webdav server.

We do not use Apache Jackrabbit or Apache Slide, as they have been nigh impossible to embed
within Archiva.
We would welcome any assistance to integrate those projects within Archiva.
