Introducing the release of Nexus Repository 3.22. Our product teams are excited to announce SAML/SSO authentication for Nexus Repository Pro. In addition to SAML/SSO, this release includes proxy support for Conan native format in both Nexus Repository Pro users and our free version, Nexus Repository OSS. Conan is the decentralized, portable, and extensible package manager for C/C++ projects.
Amidst much anticipation, Nexus Repository Pro now provides users the ability to authenticate with Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) identity providers. Using SAML, users can now experience single sign-on (SSO) when logging into the Nexus ecosystem. In the reading ahead, we will ‘pop the hood’ on SAML to learn how it works with Nexus Repository Pro, what benefits users can gain setting up the SAML integration, and key highlights for both Nexus Repository admins and developers.
