User with add Privilege Encounters "Not authorized for requested path" Attempting to Upload to a Repository

Problem

When a user attempts to upload a component to a Nexus repository the following error is observed:
"Not authorized for requested path"

The nexus.log records an error similar to the following:
org.sonatype.nexus.coreui.UploadResource - Unable to perform upload to repository repo1
org.sonatype.nexus.rest.ValidationErrorsException: Not authorized for requested path 'test/myfile'

Resolution

The authorization error indicates that the user has insufficient permissions to upload to the repository.

The following privilege is required for a user to upload to a repository:

nx-repository-view-<format>-<repo>-add

Some build tools, such as maven and yum, require more than upload. As part of the deployment process they also need to edit metadata files, which require additional permissions. For those repositories the following permissions are needed:

nx-repository-view-<format>-<repo>-add
nx-repository-view-<format>-<repo>-read
nx-repository-view-<format>-<repo>-edit

If uploading via the UI, the nx-component-upload permission is also required.
