Optional Parameters

Name Type Since Description
<allowDowngrade> boolean 2.15.0

Whether to downgrade a snapshot dependency if allowSnapshots is false and there exists a non-snapshot version within the range fulfilling the criteria.

Only valid if allowSnapshots is false.


Default value is: false.
User property is: allowDowngrade.
<allowSnapshots> boolean 1.0-alpha-1 Whether to allow snapshots when searching for the latest version of an artifact.
Default value is: false.
User property is: allowSnapshots.
<changeRecorderFormat> String 2.11 The format used to record changes. If "none" is specified, no changes are recorded.
Default value is: none.
User property is: changeRecorderFormat.
<changeRecorderOutputFile> File 2.11 The output file used to record changes.
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/versions-changes.xml.
User property is: changeRecorderOutputFile.
<excludeReactor> boolean 1.0-alpha-3 Whether to skip processing dependencies that are produced as part of the current reactor.
Default value is: true.
User property is: excludeReactor.
<excludes> String[] 1.0-beta-1 A list of artifact patterns to exclude. Follows the pattern "groupId:artifactId:type:classifier:version". This configuration setting is ignored if excludesList is defined.
<excludesList> String 1.0-beta-1 A comma separated list of artifact patterns to exclude. Follows the pattern "groupId:artifactId:type:classifier:version". Designed to allow specifying the set of excludes from the command line. When specifying excludes from the pom, use the excludes configuration instead.

<generateBackupPoms> boolean 1.0-alpha-3 Controls whether a backup pom should be created.
Default value is: true.
User property is: generateBackupPoms.
<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"

Currently, this parameter will override the defined ruleSet


User property is: maven.version.ignore.
<includes> String[] 1.0-beta-1 A list of artifact patterns to include. Follows the pattern "groupId:artifactId:type:classifier:version". This configuration setting is ignored if includesList is defined.
<includesList> String 1.0-beta-1 A comma separated list of artifact patterns to include. Follows the pattern "groupId:artifactId:type:classifier:version".
