Staging is necessary to ensure that deployed artifacts are acceptable for central synchronization.
An administrator has to create a new Repository Target (click on the 'Add' green button).This acts as a filter to detect when an artifact is uploaded to which project it belongs.In our case, the pattern reflects the main groupId of the project (should be of the form 'org.ow2.<project>').
A Staging Profile is the central configuration point of staging repositories.It mainly answers theses questions:
Click on the 'Add' green button and select *Staging Profile*.
Nexus can map a role on an LDAP group.This is particularily handy when we want to define a role for all the committers of a project (each GForge project having a unique LDAP group).Then it will be possible to gives additionnal permissions/roles to this new role.
Open the Roles page (in the Security section on the left).Click on the 'Add' green button and select External Role Mapping.The specified ID must be the name of the LDAP role (usually the GForge project's unix ID).
If left 'as is', the new role cannot do anything interesting, extra roles have to be assigned:
