Was attempting to build against the rso "nexus-private-dev" group. Found this to be extremely unstable, it kept being auto-blocked.
Root cause is that every time an artifact request comes in which is blocked by the repository target privileges in that repo we're auto-blocking the proxy.
Make a proxy for this URL in your local nexus (note, you will need to supply authorization credentials) : https://repository.sonatype.org/content/groups/private-nexus-dev/
Request something through it that there isn't a repository target privilege for:
In local Nexus log you will see we auto-block:
