How do I find the Nexus Repository instance id used by Repository Health Check or Nexus IQ Server reports?

When Nexus Repository 2 is integrated with Nexus Lifecycle features, a unique id is used to identify your Nexus Repository 2 instance.

You may be asked for this Nexus Repository ID from Sonatype Support staff in case you are experiencing problems with Lifecycle Integrations.

Refer to the screenshots to find out where this ID value is visible in the Nexus Pro user interface (note: In some versions this plugin is called the "Nexus Health Check (Pro) Plugin" or "Nexus IQ Plugin"):



Nexus Repository 2 OSS

Nexus OSS requires a more involved process to find the ID.

1) Edit sonatype-work/nexus/conf/logback-nexus.xml and add the following line after the other loggers:

<logger name="" level="DEBUG" /> 

2) After the change takes effect ( 60 seconds ), and an analysis is performed on a repository, look for lines like the following:

2013-07-05 09:48:03 DEBUG [pxpool-1-thread-1] admin - Calling into server ( with PUT

The 2425fdaabcb641068bd0f69466712345 is the Nexus ID in this case.
