Optional Parameters

Name Type Since Description
<allowSnapshots> boolean 1.0-alpha-3 Whether to allow snapshots when searching for the latest version of an artifact.
Default value is: false.
User property is: allowSnapshots.
<comparisonMethod> String 1.0-alpha-1 The versioning rule to use when comparing versions. Valid values are maven, numeric which will handle long version numbers provided all components are numeric, or mercury which will use the mercury version number comparison rules.
User property is: comparisonMethod.
<ignoredVersions> Set<String> 2.13.0

Allows specifying ignored versions directly as an alternative to providing the ruleSet parameter; mainly created for -D property usage.

Example: "1\.0\.1,.+-M.,.*-SNAPSHOT"

User property is: maven.version.rules.
<serverId> String 1.0-alpha-3 settings.xml's server id for the URL. This is used when wagon needs extra authentication information.
