[Created] (MNG-6808) Need ability to remove inherited plugin configuration

------------------------------------

             Summary: Need ability to remove inherited plugin configuration
                 Key: MNG-6808
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6808
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: POM
            Reporter: Marcin Wisnicki


There are cases where plugin configuration inherited from parent contains elements that you want removed rather than overridden.

 

For example when developing Hippo CMS projects you are required to inherit their parent pom which provides among other things a Cargo configuration with <zipUrlInstaller>.

If you would like to provide instead an <artifactInstaller> you need to remove <zipUrlInstaller> as they are mutually exclusive and build will fail.

Unfortunately at the moment your only option is to replace entire configuration with {{<configuration combine.self="override">}} and copy a lot of configuration.

 

It would be great if I could remove inherited element instead with something like:

<zipUrlInstaller combine.self="remove">
