Jenkins : JenkinsBehindProxyGit

When running Jenkins behind an HTTPS proxy, everything said under JenkinsBehindProxy applies.

In addition, there are several more issues (to be explained better):

  • Native git still requires a proper Java configuration which is counter-intuitive
  • Vice versa ...
  • Proxy authentication credentials
  • Non-proxy hosts (when combining internal and external repositories)
  • No plugin?

Some of the current behaviour may need reporting as a bug in Git client plugin.

To be able to access Github, It looks like one needs an environment variable:


Where is that read?

Does that have to be in addition to -Dhttps.... ?
