Right now people are pointed to https://plugins.gradle.org/m2
While this is a useful starting point, this information is incomplete for people working in high security environments. In particular, after waiting couple of weeks for adding https://plugins.gradle.org to our proxy whitelist, we realised it redirects to a different domain (plugins-artifacts.gradle.org) and now we need to wait again…
It would be great if there is a page on the http://plugins.gradle.org site, detailing the setup and instructions for the repo proxy requirements:
- Addresses that need to be whitelisted
- If applicable, artifacts patterns that can be enforced (if any applicable)
- Recommended settings for Artifactory and Nexus (for metadata validation, timeouts, etc)
- Proposed init scripts
This will help a lot of people get started faster.
P.S. unrelated to Gradle, but if anybody else is trying to create a whitelisted setup, we also found that JCenter redirects to Akamai and JFrog OSS Artifactory repo.
