How do I force Maven to use external repos to retrieve artifacts?



I got following error while trying to build the project. The project is spring project and use IntelliJ with java 8.

Could not find artifact org.springframework.data:spring-data-bom:pom:2021.0.0-M2 in nexus (http://maven:8081/nexus/content/groups/public)

Is there a way to fix it through setting.xml? I have not access to any configuration on http://maven:8081/nexus/content/groups/public

This is my setting.

Answer

If you set

    <mirrorOf>*</mirrorOf>
    <url>http://maven:8081/nexus/content/groups/public</url>

then you send every request to this repository, regardless of the rest of the settings.xml. You need to do something like

    <mirrorOf>*,!central</mirrorOf>
    <url>http://maven:8081/nexus/content/groups/public</url>

but please also correct/remove the URLs as khmarbaise said.
