Fusion Registry version 10.8.0 supports the use of HTTP Forward Proxies. This feature allows particular network requests to be made via a user-defined proxy.

Specifying a Proxy

Forward Proxies can be specified on the settings page: Server Settings -> Forward Proxies

A proxy is defined by:

  • The Domain to use the proxies for. A Domain may have wildcards specified by an asterisk (*). E.g. *
  • The host of the proxy to use
  • The port of the proxy
  • The user ID to use for authentication on the proxy - this is optional.
  • The password to use for authentication on the proxy - this is optional.

Note: Do not specify http or https when specifying either the domain or proxy
