Configure a proxy for ALM connections

By default, the connection between the Integration Bridge and ALM is not authenticated by proxy. To configure a proxy, do the following:

Note:  

On Windows: Perform this procedure as a user with permissions to run the Integration Bridge.
On Linux: Perform this procedure as a root user, or as the user who installed the Integration Bridge.
  1. In the <Integration Bridge installation directory>\product\domain\alm\conf folder, open the proxy.properties file. (In Linux, reverse the slashes in the path.)

  2. To use a proxy, change the setProxy value to true.

    If this value is false, proxy settings are ignored and no proxy is used.

  3. Set the proxy host and port values:

    1. Change the proxyHost value to the proxy IP address or server name.

    2. Change the proxyPort value to the relevant port for the proxy.

      When proxyHost has a value, proxyPort is mandatory.

  4. If the proxy requires authentication:

    1. Change the proxyUser value to the proxy user name.

    2. Change the proxyPass value to the proxy password.

      When proxyUser has a value, proxyPass is mandatory.

  5. Save the proxy.properties file.

  6. Restart the Integration Bridge. For details, see Start and stop the Integration Bridge.

Tip: If authentication fails, verify that the contents of the proxy.properties file are syntactically correct and contain valid values.
