      Description

      Scenario:

      1. A user sets up required tooling to use a proxy or group (more than likely a group)
      2. User attempts to publish/deploy/etc... to URL
        1. Nexus Repo rightfully denies this
      3. User spends next few minutes or hours Googling to try and figure out what they've messed up with their config, rather than realizing this is by design

      Some thing I stumble upon in the community role is that our users try and publish to proxies and groups more often than they should. I think that we could be a bit more explicit about this being impossible, at least until we did something for groups where you can publish and it picks the first hosted repo (I remember a ticket like this).

      Example of confusion: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37856845/405-error-on-maven-build-to-nexus-3/40618154#40618154

      Acceptance Criteria:

      • Maybe we run the documentation changes by the previously confused users and see if it is more clear to them that you cannot publish to a proxy/group
