How to Migrate Repositories from Artifactory to Nexus

Sonatype is pleased to announce version 1.5 of the Nexus Migration Plugin. This version contains an updated implementation of our Artifactory to Nexus migration tool. If you are currently running Artifactory and you want to migrate to Nexus, all you need to do is:

  1. Create a System Export from Artifactory
  2. Install Nexus with the Nexus Migration Plugin
  3. Import Your Artifactory System Export to Nexus
  4. Configure the Artifactory Bridge to seamlessly serve artifacts to existing clients

You can use the Nexus Migration Plugin with Nexus Open Source or Nexus Professional. To get started, download Nexus Open Source or Nexus Professional, then download the Nexus Migration Plugin.


The Nexus Migration Plugin is no longer supported. Detailed migration instructions can be found in the Nexus Repository Manager documentation.
