The Nexus Outreach feature provides your Nexus Welcome page with important messages direct from Sonatype. The Outreach feature is enabled by default. Periodically Nexus will request a 'page bundle' of messages from Sonatype servers. The exact URLs that Nexus uses to get the messages may change periodically.
If there is a problem downloading these messages in the background, you may notice a nexus.log message similar to the following:
admin com.sonatype.nexus.plugins.outreach.internal.outreach.SonatypeOutreach - Could not download page bundle
