We do not use Nexus or any server. We are behind a Firewall and use only 
simple file system resolvers, so
our system is perhaps simpler than most. But we have no problem using 
ivy plugin 1.14 on Jenkins 1.392+

What it does for us is order the builds automatically, once each project 
that has an ivy file has been built once.
After that, on  each project page you can see a list of downstream and 
upstream projects. Thus, if I check in a change
to a library project with N dependents, each of those N dependents will 
automatically be rebuilt after the
library is rebuilt. Since the ivy file is part of the checked in project 
code, changing the ivy file also triggers rebuilds.
