Artifactory supports Maven repositories with Allow Anonymous Access enabled by default and will not query the Maven client for authentication parameters.

If you want to enforce authentication you need to explicitly instruct Artifactory to request authentication parameters.

In the New or Edit Repository dialog of the Maven virtual repositories, select the Force Authentication check box.

When Force Authentication is selected, Artifactory will request authentication parameters from the Maven client before trying to access this repository.
