Resolution

Many organizations want to have control over the use of external packages.  Jenkins plugins are commonly used, and Artifactory can be used to ingest these into your organization, and allow you to leverage all the features of Artifactory and Jfrog offerings when serving your clients.  To do so:

  1. Create a remote repository
  2. set the url to: https://updates.jenkins.io/download/plugins
  3. If necessary, set up proxies and/or gateway devices.
