Update SCM URL

Update the SCM URL in the SCM section of the pom file

GitHub has deprecated one of the unauthenticated access protocols (git:// protocol). The pom.xml section that defines the scm for the plugin should refer to the repository with the https:// protocol instead of the git:// protocol

Create a branch

Create a git branch for your local work with the command:

$ git checkout -b update-scm-url master

Use https instead of git protocol

Edit the scm section in the pom XML file to replace git:// with https:// .

-    <connection>scm:git:git://github.com/jenkinsci/your-plugin.git</connection>
+    <connection>scm:git:https://github.com/jenkinsci/your-plugin.git</connection>

Create a pull request

Commit that change:

$ git add pom.xml
$ git commit -m "Use https: for scm URL, not git:"

Push the change to GitHub:

$ git push origin --set-upstream update-scm-url
