I’m using Artifactory by Jfrog to as my repository my items, but also using it for cache external repositories and wanted to to use it for https://plugins.gradle.org/m2.
Unfortunately when I ask Artifactory it test the connect using https://plugins.gradle.org/m2, it fails with a 404
When I provide it https://plugins.gradle.org/ it passes, but then only seems to return a few items. Which seems to match the items that are displayed when you browse to https://plugins.gradle.org/.
If, in my Gradle script I add the repository for https://plugins.gradle.org/m2, the plugin comes down.
So it appears to be a issue with Artifactory and this repository…
