Hello,

when trying to add a Software Site (P2 plugin repository - either one generated by P2 Publisher or Nexus with P2 support) to a target definition via the "Target Definition Wizard" there appear to be "no items available" preventing the site to be added.

Tycho and the "p2-browser" are capable of fetching the metadata and artifacts though, since the site contains a number of plugins (in "plugins" dir) along with artifacts.xml and content.xml. The repo contents are plain (3rd party and own) plugins/bundles, uncategorized, no features invloved.

See screenshot of Software Site UI and P2 Browser attached.

index.php/fa/15969/0/

Is there a known limitation/bug of the UI related to this behaviour or could you please point me to a workaround?

Many thanks

Jaro

So far, p2 UI only shows:
* Feature (categorized or not)
* Categorized bundles
in order to prevent UI from showing everything in the p2 repo (a p2 repo
can be thousands of IUs).

So you should add categories to make you bundles visible.
