    Description

      ISSUE:

      Unable to retrieve helm chars from remote Artifactory repository.

       

      CAUSE:

      When nexus requests index.yaml file from remote Artifactory server, its not challenging with authenticate header and serves partial file.

       

      $ curl  https://repos.prod.remote.cloud/artifactory/helm-customer/index.yaml
      apiVersion: v1
      generated: 2022-10-27T00:35:57.983468Z
      

       

      Remote server expects preemptive authentication to serve full content of the index.yaml file, which nexus doesn't do even when its configured with basic authentication details.

       

       

      EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

      Nexus allows preemptive authentication for helm proxy repository, similar to maven proxy repository.

       

      CURRENT BEHAVIOR:

      Helm clients unable to download charts from remote server via nexus proxy
