Making your changelogs fetchable

In case you are publishing artifacts and you want to ensure that your changelogs are fetchable by Renovate, you need to configure the scm section on their pom.xml file.

For example:


This is what allows Renovate to determine the sourceUrl, that it then uses to fetch the changelogs.


This also works for private repositories. It can leverage the same token that you had to configure in order to be able to reach the private Artifactory.
