Can't create project from archetype for version 13.0.0



I’m trying to create a new project, using the archetype, using the following command:

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate \
-DarchetypeRepository= \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.onehippo.cms7 \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=hippo-project-archetype \

However I get presented with the following error:

Downloading from hippo-project-archetype-repo:
Downloading from central:

This might suggest it can’t retrieve the definition from the maven repository, but when I tried the archetype with version 12.6.0 it did work.

Any suggestion as to what I might be doing wrong is welcome, but it appears as if the archetype wasn’t defined properly, perhaps?


Hey Jens,

are you sure you have access to ? Since we did not yet publicly announce the 13.0.0, the archetype is not yet deployed to the community mvn repository, so that can’t be found is correct. However it is present in the enterprise mvn repo at . Can you validate whether you have really access to that mvn repo?

or just use one from:

and upgrade to enterprise pom with essentials.


Hi Ard,

Thanks for getting back to me. I found out that my credentials for the enterprise repository were set in my maven settings.xml file with the id hippo-maven2-enterprise and the archetype required an id of hippo-project-archetype-repo. So basically I duplicated my credentials node in the settings.xml and changed the id to hippo-project-archetype-repo and now it works.



Thanks for helping out!

Kind regards,
