Sonatype Nexus Repository Room for Improvement

Joseph_Lim - PeerSpot reviewer
Principal Engineer at Interos Solutions, Inc.

One issue is that Nexus Repository doesn't have an end-to-end solution that helps developers easily sign an image and store it or to deploy that image if it's not signed. We're looking for other tools to help us with that. We'll continue to use Nexus but only for storing our artifacts. It would be great if Nexus had some features to help us maintain our container images as well. The solution could be more intuitive.

We are using goharbor for our container registry. It has a feature that helps us to define a pattern and other features that have allowed us to configure the container images more easily. In that sense, Nexus is not as feature-rich. I'm hoping that the features we use on goharbor will be integrated into Nexus and then we won't need as many tools to run our infrastructure.

I would like to see multifactor authentication implemented.

The only thing that I would like to see is multifactor authentication. This is a critical feature that must be included.

Sonatype Nexus Repository could improve by making the experience working with CI/CD pipelines, such as GitHub Action or GitLab better.

They could improve the user interface and REST APIs. I found that JFrog has multiple features as compared to Nexus Artifactory. JFrog is more advanced, so it has many good features. The REST API is good. The CLI and the integration with other build tools are quite good in JFrog, so comparatively I found the Nexus has to improve a lot.
