Use of credentials for resolving dynamic versions from Artifactory

Continuing the discussion from Use of credentials for resolving dynamic versions:

as the linked thread (started by a former co-worker of ming) points out, this is really a bug in Artifactory. I just wanted to follow-up to say that it looks like this bug has been fixed in newer versions of Artifactory (3.5.3 onward): see I haven’t tested this yet but hopefully I will do next week.

It’s worth mentioning that GitHub does something similar (404 means not there OR unauthorized), mainly for security reasons. Configuring preemptive auth should also fix this.

Aha, preemptive Aug might be a good solution for us. We’re currently stuck on a very old Gradle version for custom plugin reasons, but should be able to upgrade at some point.

Thanks :slight_smile:
