How Do I Upload Snapshots to the Self-Hosted Maven Repo?

Uploading Snapshots

  1. Log in to the DevCloud homepage.
  2. On the top navigation bar, choose DevCloud > Self-Hosted Repo.
  3. Click the snapshot repository in the repository list. Click Upload. In the Upload snapshot Component dialog box displayed, select the GAV definition mode as required.

    There are two GAV definition modes.

    GAV Definition Mode



    GAV information is extracted from POM files.


    GAV information is manually specified.

  4. Set related parameters as prompted and upload the corresponding package.

Uploading Snapshots Using the Maven CLI

  1. Access the self-hosted Maven repo homepage, and choose the snapshot repository in the repository list.

  2. In the upper right corner, choose Set Up.

  3. Configure the local Maven tool by following the configuration guide.
  4. Run mvn deploy to upload the Maven project.

    In the Maven CLI, access the directory where the pom.xml file of the Maven project is stored, then run the following command to upload a local JAR package:
    mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=com.huawei -DartifactId=aopalliance -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=D:\aopalliance-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar -Durl={Maven Snapshot address} -DrepositoryId=snapshots
    • Set DgroupId, DartifactId, Dversion, and Dpackaging as required.
    • Set Dfile to the absolute path of the local JAR package.
    • Set Durl to the Maven snapshot address, which can be obtained by clicking in the preceding figure.

Releasing Snapshots to the Self-Hosted Maven Repo Through CloudBuild

  1. Access the code repository, open the pom.xml file, and define the GAV information of the component to upload.

    • When a build task is run, CloudBuild identifies the component attributes uploaded to the private Maven repository based on the definition.
    • version: Releases are uploaded by default. To upload a snapshot, add the suffix -SNAPSHOT to the value of version, for example, 1.0-SNAPSHOT.

  2. Edit a build task. Specifically, in the build action Build with Maven:

    • In the command box, comment out the mvn package command (add # before the command) and uncomment the mvn deploy command (delete # before the command).
    • Click Release Package to CloudArtifact, and select Configure all POMs.

  3. Run the build task. After the build task is executed, you can find the generated Maven component in the private Maven repository.
