Subject RE: Delete files from Archiva
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2008 17:43:01 GMT
Thanks, that's good to know.  It actually does help quite a bit since I
couldn't find that information anywhere on the website or wiki.

The problem that spurred this question is that we are running into
problems with the integration of Hudson-Maven2-Archiva.  We perform a
build every 30 minutes and if I use the deploy goal for Maven2 on Hudson
(or the deploy to repository option), every 30 minutes it adds a new
version and updates the SNAPSHOT version.

Example at 10:30am
10:00am build - 1.0-20080818.143303-138 
10:30am build - 1.0-20080818.150302-139 
Latest snapshot: 1.0-SNAPSHOT (actually 1.0-20080818.150302-139).

All the version 1.0-YYYYMMDD.TTTTTT-BBB are retained and never purged by
Archiva.  When I set up repository scanning to purge old files
(retention count 5, days 0) it leaves all these old builds.

Does anyone know a way to get this setup such that Archiva will actually
remove these old versions?

Thanks in advance.

Right now the only way to delete is by modifying the filesystem
directly. (As a repository manager you should be able to do it through
the webdav interface, for examply by opening the repo as a 'web folder'
in Windows, but I haven't tried that in a while.)

Being able to delete through the web ui has been on my wish list for a
while and I just opened an issue yesterday.  You might want to comment
