Download artifacts with an artifactory server object in a Jenkins Pipeline doesn't work in the Version 2.12.0 anymore.

Here is the error message:
[Pipeline] artifactoryDownload
Error occurred for request CONNECT <artifactory Server dns alias>:443 HTTP/1.1. Received status code 503 and message: Service Unavailable.
Attempting retry #1
Received status code 503 and message: Service Unavailable.

Both the Jenkins Server and the artifactory Server are in an Intranet that is why the Proxy Server is deactivated here.
We download artifacts in a Pipeline Jenkins Job with an artifactory Server object created in a groovy script:
def artifactoryRootURL = "https://<artifactory server>:443/artifactory/"
withCredentials([[$class: 'UsernamePasswordMultiBinding', credentialsId: <user id>, passwordVariable: 'artifactoryUserPassword', usernameVariable: 'artifactoryUserName']])

{ artifactoryServer = Artifactory.newServer url: artifactoryRootURL, username: artifactoryUserName, password: artifactoryUserPassword }

def downloadSpec = """{
"files": [

{ "pattern": "<repository>/<artifact id>/<version>/*.zip", "target": "<workspace folder>/<download folder>/" }

def buildInfo = artifactoryServer.download(downloadSpec)

After downgrading to the plugin version 2.11. it works again.

Some additional Information:

  • same error message after Setting bypassProxy to false (setBypassProxy(false))
  • no problems by uploading of artifacts with similar code (setBypassProxy(true) too)
  • similar error message by uploading of artifacts after setting bypassProxy to false
  • the flag "Bypass HTTP Proxy" in the global artifactory plugin configuration seems to work: "Test Connection" shows "Found Artifactory 5.3.0" if it is set and "Error occurred while requesting version information: Service Unavailable" if not

any plans to fix this issue? Currently we cannot upgrade this plugin in our jenkins instances and are pinned down to the version 2.11., because both the jenkins servers and the artifactory server are in the company intranet and the communication via proxy server doesn't work. Thanks in advance for any information!

Hi @Eyal Ben Moshe,
the snapshot version (downloaded from https://oss.jfrog.org/artifactory/oss-snapshot-local/org/jenkins-ci/plugins/artifactory/2.12.3-SNAPSHOT/artifactory-2.12.3-20170809.123654-2.hpi) brings the same error message: "Error occurred for request CONNECT <artifactory server alias>:443 HTTP/1.1. Received status code 503 and message: Service Unavailable"
The job works again after downgrading to the version 2.11.

Hi @DimaN,
thank you for the fix - it seems to fix this problem!
I was able both upload and download artifacts from resp. from the internal artifactory server (as described in this ticket)
