Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-12343) Enable authentication tokens in Nexus?
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2016 01:33:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-12343?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15396769#comment-15396769

Brian Fox commented on INFRA-12343:

The usertoken functionality is already enabled. If you login to the ui and click your name
in the top left, you can get or reset your token from there.

>          Components: Nexus
>            Reporter: Daniel Halperin
> CC [@BrianFox] per recommendation on #asfinfra
> Apache's Nexus expects us to put username and password in cleartext in ~/.m2/settings.xml.
> For other projects, I have been able to get from Nexus web UI pseudorandom tokens for
"username" and "password" instead. This seems a medium security improvement.
> Filing a feature request/wish for token per suggestion on hipchat.
> Thanks!
