Why can't I upload the artifact to archiva (unauthorized), but I can upload it using admin?

I have been working with archiva for about a year,

I download my jars manually using the archiva GUI and it works great.

Now I want to download the maven deployment artifact, the problem is I am getting 401-Unauthorized . Do not forget that:

1.) I can download from this repository without any problem.

2.) I am using admin user.

3.) I can download with this user manually.

this is the log I am getting:

[com:apinterface.parent] Downloading: http://xx.xx.xx.xx:9080/archiva/repository/snapshots/com/apinterface.parent/1.0-SNAPSHOT/maven-metadata.xml

This must be because you have not configured Maven to use the Archiva username and password to download artifacts during the deployment phase.

I am assuming you have already set up a distributionManagement section in your pom file.

        <name>Internal Snapshots</name>
        <name>Internal Releases</name>


You must have servers with matching IDs in your Maven settings file (like in the example below) in order to configure the username / password that maven should use when uploading (deploying) artifacts
