Dependency on sbt module from maven repository

We are writing in spark so we use sbt to build our modules. We create a local maven repository that was installed on the jenkins machine and use jenkins to build and push to the repository. Now I want to use a dependency to our modules from an sbt, I added the repository to the revolvers and still sbt can't find our jar from the repository.I saw that its looking for a pom file but as we build in sbt of course we don't have this file. How can we manage jars in a local repository using sbt ?
