I would like to be able to upload to artifactory because I am experiencing
issues with maven central.
Currently we use artifactory as a read-only caching proxy for artifacts from Maven Central.
This makes it easier to maintain since no unique content is stored there. The main benefits are speed improvements and traffic saving. It is considered part of the PHX CI system.
Once we decide to change it to actually be the primary source of artifacts we’ll need to treat it as a production service similar to resources.ovirt.org and ensure it’s mirrored/backed up and always online.
What’s the current workflow that is failing for you with Central? How often are artifacts uploaded? Are they generated by Jenkins? Are other projects also submitting artifacts to Central?
There were issues with maven central that is why I opened this ticket. Now it is working again and there is no need to work on this anymore.
