So I’m trying to import the project defined at https://github.com/jenkinsci/git-plugin/releases/tag/git-3.3.0 . I unpacked the zip file locally, and then tried to import the Gradle project there.
I attempted the import and it gave me the following error dialog (“Synchronize Gradle projects with workspace failed”):
Loading Gradle project preview failed due to an error in the referenced Gradle build.
Could not fetch model of type ‘GradleBuild’ using Gradle distribution ‘https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-3.5-bin.zip’.
A problem occurred configuring root project 'git-plugin-git-3.3.0'. Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration ':classpath'. Could not find org.jenkins-ci.tools:gradle-jpi-plugin:0.1-SNAPSHOT.
What’s curious is that this is apparently a fatal error, because this causes it to not import the project. I tried clicking OK on this dialog, and then clicking “Finish” on the “Import Gradle Project” dialog, but then it just brought back the “Synchronize failed” dialog again. I clicked OK on that dialog, but nothing else happened. No project was created.
I then tried finding the source code for the project it’s trying to reference as a dependency. I found that, and I was able to create a Gradle project from that. I then tried again to import the original project, but it went through the same path.
What can I do here?
