Sonatype Nexus REST Api fetch latest build version

How can I can use the Sonatype REST Api to fetch the build with the highest version (latest temporal build)?

http://MY_REPOSITORY/nexus/service/local/lucene/search?a=ARTIFACT_NAME&v=ARTIFACT_VERSION


Passing a build version as
ARTIFACT_VERSION
works. Passing
v=LATEST
or
v=latest
does NOT return the latest build.

Answer

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:

http://MY_REPOSITORY/nexus/service/local/artifact/maven/content?r=repoId&g=groupName&a=art&v=LATEST
