Remote Maven Repository for Custom Plugin

Dear Gradle experts,

I have been trying to consume custom gradle plugin that I wrote. Task is working when I refer jar in local repository. But I am unable to get it worked when it is deployed into remote repository.

//fatjar is located on http://

buildscript {
repositories {
maven {
url: “

dependencies {
	classpath files ('testiqClientJar'))


apply plugin: ‘’

testiqTask {
println(“Running testiqTask…!”)

When I execute it like: gradle -PtestiqClientJar=ttsclient-all-0.11.jar testiqTask

I am getting the following build error:

A problem occurred configuring root project ‘tts’.

Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration ‘:classpath’.
You must specify a URL for a Maven repository.

I’m going to close this topic since there is a duplicate at Consuming Custom Plugin in remote repository
