  • Dark
    Light

Point to Note:

The proxy configuration settings is applicable for on-premise users only. Currently not supported for shared instance users.

Introduction

This article describes the basic configuration of a proxy server. You will learn how to pass a request from Vault to proxied servers over different protocols, and modify request headers that are sent to the proxied server.

Vault sends the proxy details in the request headers whenever getting connected to an outside customer network.

Permissions

  • The proxy configuration settings is for on-premise users only. Support for shared instances users are currently not applicable.
  • Only System Admins can configure the proxy settings for your organization.
  • The proxy can be configured for AWS storage environment only.

How to configure Proxy

Follow the steps given below to configure a proxy server:

  1. Log in to the Vault account.

  2. Go to Settings > Proxy Configuration Settings.

  3. Click on Create New Proxy.

  4. A new dialog box appears where you are required to fill in the proxy related details such as:

    • Proxy Name: Enter the proxy name. This will be used as a reference.
    • Proxy Host: The hostname of the HTTP proxy server. Ex- 127.0.0.1
    • Proxy Port: The port number of the HTTP proxy server. Ex- 3128
    • Select your AWS storage environment (AWS-S3 or AWS-KMS ) to create a storage connection with them.
    • Enter the Proxy URL. Click Add. Multiple URLs can be configured for the same proxy server.
