This error is due to communication issues with our servers for retrieving security information at the URL which is one of the URLs that you have to grant access to as explained in this document This is most often caused by proxy settings interfering with this communication.

  • You will need to verify the settings in place at Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Advanced to ensure that communication to the Beekeeper url is allowed.

You can also test out the connection through the proxy settings.

  1. Navigate to Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins -> Advanced

  2. In the HTTP Proxy Configuration section, click the Advanced button to see the Test URL field.

  3. Enter the url from above and click Validate Proxy to run a test.

Once you confirm that connection can be established, please go to "Manage Jenkins" > "Configure System" and look for "Administrative monitors configuration". Expand the list of administrative monitors and re-enable the "Security Warnings Monitor".
