Mounting DAV Repositories

Mounting the Repository Locally

Because your repository is exposed over WebDAV, you and all of your developers can mount your Maven repositories as WebDAV drives, allowing you to interact with it just like a local drive (drag and drop operations, etc).  

The user name you use will be the one you setup when you created your account - if you click on the account details icon (a little cog up the top right) then you will be able to see your current user name - use this - NOT your email that you logged in with.

How to mount this depends on your operating system, but here are some pointers on how to do this:

Mac OSX

See the Apple KB article

Linux

See our Linux article

Windows

Windows Explorer has native support for WebDav that is known for poor performance and stability, see this Windows article.

As an alternative, you can use CyberDuck to connect to your WebDav repository
