How can I can use the Sonatype REST Api to fetch the build with the highest version (latest temporal build)?
It is not documented that /service/local/lucene/search support "LATEST" as version parameter [link]
The OSS rest api documentation states that
/service/local/artifact/maven [link] (to get the artifact pom file) and
/service/local/artifact/maven/content [link] (to get the actual file content) does support it:
Version of the artifact (Required) Supports resolving of "LATEST", "RELEASE" and snapshot versions ("1.0-SNAPSHOT") too.
So I think you should use one of them (you will have to supply them also with repositoryId and groupId) for example:
