Yes, you can have your maven artifacts published to Artifactory even before the maven DSL for Artifactory is released. When the DSL is released, using it should be the most convenient and therefore highly recommended for all maven builds from a Pipeline script.
Till this is released, you can use one of the following options:
1. User the Maven Artifactory Plugin (a maven plugin that you can install inside your pom file). The plugin provides: checksum deployment, atomic deployment at the end of the build and build-info publication:
2. User maven's default deploy goal, Less recommended than option #1 above, because it does not provide any of the Artifactory Plugin advantages, but it will get your artifacts deployed in Artifactory.
