If you see the following warning in the nexus.log relating to task "Automatically submit analytics events", then you need to add host name analytics.sonatype.com to SSL Certificates (Administration -> SSL Certificates)

If your Nexus instance is configured to use an HTTP proxy server that rewrites SSL certificates for secure ( HTTPS ) remote hosts, then please follow the resolution in article How to trust the SSL certificate issued by the HTTP proxy server in Nexus.
