Subject Authorization Denied for archiva-read-repository permission from maven
Date Wed, 09 Feb 2011 06:30:50 GMT
Hello List,

I'm following a book about maven and have set up a repository manager in
archiva - this user works when logging in via the web UI and also when
browsing directly to
archiva/repository/snapshots/..../1.0-SNAPSHOT/maven-metadata.xml (prompts
for username and password and these also work).

This is the log from archiva.log

Caused by: org.apache.maven.wagon.authorization.AuthorizationException:
Access denied to:

Helpppppppppp please!!

1.  I've set a "master password"  and have put it in the
~/.m2/settings-security.xml file like so:


Don't know exactly what it's for and think

2.  I've set my user password in the ~/.m2/conf/settings.xml file like so

<settings xmlns=""

3.  My pom.xml file has the distribution management set correctly I'm
presuming otherwise the mvn deploy output would be going to the wrong url.
