Search artifactory based on group id and download the artifacts

I’ve written a task to download artifacts from artiactory.

task downloadZip(type: Copy) {
   from configurations.build1
   into 'D:/EclipseWorkspace/GradleTest/target'

build1 is the dependency hardcoded with (group, name , version). Instead I want to do a look up in artifactory using a regular expression and then download all matching artefacts. I’ve below algorithm in mind

1.Query artifactory -gradle equivalent of a package searh GAVC in maven) - is it possible ?
2.create dynamic dependencies based on search Query result. - Still looking into examples.Highly appreciate if you can point me to right direction.
3. Modify the task to run a loop of copy for each artifact.

I’d use the RESTful API exposed by Artifactory to determine the GAVs that you can then download with Gradle.

Thanks REST API helped. I’ve parsed the http response to extra group, name, version needed to create dependency. I’m try to add dependency as below:

def groupId = //parse http response
def artiId = //parse http response
def artiVersion = //parse http response
def myNotation = groupId+“:”+artiId+“:”+artiVersion+“@‘zip’”
project.dependencies.add(myConfName, myNotation)

I get below exception

Failed to notify ProjectEvaluationListener.afterEvaluate(), but primary configur
ation failure takes precedence.
org.gradle.api.ProjectConfigurationException: A problem occurred configuring roo
