timeout on bitbucket webhook created by jenkins-bitbucket server integration plugin

I have followed the instructions per this article:

The webhook is automatically created in Bitbucket upon saving the Jenkins Project configuration. The URL endpoint it creates is:


Upon pushing a commit, the webhook triggers, but always errors with the timeout message: 20,000 milliseconds timeout on connection http-outgoing-364 [ACTIVE]

(the number after http-outgoing- varies but is always 3 digits)

I get the same timeout error if I try to test the connection from the Edit Webhook page.

I've tried both an instance of Jenkins running in Docker and a fresh install directly on a machine running Ubuntu 18. There are no firewalls in the way. Jenkins has no problem retrieving and building from Bitbucket if I start the build manually.

Any ideas?
