Can I upload a closed source artifact?⚓︎

Questions⚓︎

What if you want to upload an artifact but the source code of that artifact or project is not public or under an open source license. Can I upload it without publishing the source code?

Answer⚓︎

Yes! You can upload artifacts under closed source to the Central Repository. For details please read our Terms of Service for Publishers.

Just keep in mind that uploading a jar of the sources to pass the requirements is still needed, but you can add any dummy source JAR file (Eg. a JAR with README content) to pass that requirement step when publishing your artifact.
