Applications teams are facing issues in importing artifacts from RAW formatted repositories For e.g: When you use raw (e.g. javascript cwa) or pypi format then it can only pick up the first level folder name as the version This doesn't work very well as normally users would have multiple applications in a nexus repo, each in their own folder, So it forces one repo per application or inability to use pull for non java applications. Due to this all javascript, python and non maven java applications are affected by this. Do we have any update on Nexus Repo v3 / Maven plugin in upcoming releases to pull artifacts specific set of folders from raw formatted repositories.

IDEA Fixpack Augmentation – Priority 1 The recommendation is to augment the remediation artifact to include the entire history of the available fixpacks that are applicable to a vulnerability which is not done today. The current view on the glass reflects IBM’s design decision taken from a security standpoint, that WSA will promote the latest fixpack as a best practice and will most likely remain as the default choice. Kaiser can work with the API approach to install fixpacks that are not at the latest level via API customization but it would be nice to have it in the UI visibility.

As an example of why this approach would be useful, consider Kaiser’s current approach offers developers the choice of n-1, n-2, and current fixpack version. A view on the glass that will show if eight of ten CVE’s are fixed in one fixpack, that K...
