Given a default setup, the project requires Http proxy configured under: Jenkins->Manage Plugins->http proxy configuration.
Jenkins/Artifactory-plugin was installed with correct URI insert into field Artifactory server field. Checkbox marked with "Bypass proxy", saved, re-opened/re-started Jenkins ..
Performing a connection test to Artifactory fails with message:
"There is either an incompatible or no instance of Artifactory at the provided URL."
Artifactory's request log does not get any updates, thus looks like the Jenkins/Artifactory-plugin still tries to connect through the http proxy.
Artifactory Pro: v4.6.0
Jenkins: tested with v1.654 and v1.642.2
If we completely remove the proxy under Jenkins->Manage Plugins->http proxy, Artifactory can be connected successfully. Also connecting to an Internet Artifactory instance works, only the local instance on a different machine in network cannot be connected due to the missing proxy bypass.
Doing a test directly, via cURL, starting on the Jenkins master server:
delivers a success:

Solution or workaround needed since this is a showstopper for usage.
