Rate limiting issues accessing plugins.gradle.org


Currently, we are experiencing issues accessing https://plugins.gradle.org/m2, we thought at first that we reached the rate limits from CloudFlare, but after posting a question to their forums, it turns out that every site hosted using Cloudflare is having its own rate limit settings, so I wonder if there were any changes in the past days regarding that?

Our issue is our Nexus and CI/CDs can’t access plugins.gradle.org anymore, erroring with SSL errors:

  • javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException

And many related errors, so please if you can guide us in what to do to increase our rate limits, or how we can fix that?


What do you see that is suggesting rate limits?

SSL errors would more typically be caused by a change such as introduction or reconfiguration of a network proxy, especially since this seem to be impacting multiple sites, that would unlikely have identical rate limiting policies.
