My confluence instance is behind a web proxy, so I've set the following JVM command line parameters:
-Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyhostname -Dhttp.proxyPort=4321
Which works fine for confluence to access Atlassian Marketplace, but doesn't seem to work in this case. Any suggestions?

The plugin developer got back to me, and had me add:

https.proxyHost and https.proxyPort

to my JVM command line, which did the trick.

I would guess that internally in their plugin they are using a HttpClient instance but not setting the proxy details provided by the system properties? I've had to do that before in plugins. I'm sure the authors will help here though
