Configure ManageIQ behind proxy server

providers

How can I configure proxy server details in ManageIQ ?

Thanks,

Hi,

In ManageIQ go to Configuration> Advanced.
In the advanced configuration, you will find an :http_proxy section where you can define different proxy for each provider and a default proxy.
Take care when you are editing something in advanced configuration as you can break your appliance and need to revert change in DB.

Thank you so much. Also how can I configure authentication for proxy server communication ? I saw the “user” and “password” directive in the advanced section.
Di I need to change the special characters in the password with its corresponding ascii code or not?

Thanks,
Biju

Yes you must use the user and password directive. As for specials characters in password, I don’t know as I don’t have any login on my proxy.

Should that work with Automate Import Datastore via git? All I get is
