      Description

      With nexus 2 it was possible to delete artifact using DELETE URLs of the form

      https://host/nexus/content/repositories/<repoId>/<groupId>/<artifactId>/<version>

      This was very convenient to implement a custom cleanup strategy of releases published to nexus. This appears not to work anymore on nexus 3.

      Can this be supported again? (either through simple HTTP DELETE or through REST?). Or is it perhaps already supported?

      This functionality is not covered through the nexus cleanup tasks since Nexus does not know what artifacts constitute a release together and what the specific release cleanup policy is.
