Proxy Server Support

Proxy Server Support #

The PRO Edition needs to communicate with the application portal to validate licenses. It often needs to do this from inside restricted networks. A proxy server can be configured in a number of different ways.

  • Setting the HTTPS_PROXY (or HTTP_PROXY) environment variable before the application is started
  • Setting the https_proxy property in the application setting file

Proxy Use #

The proxy is used for the following actions

  • Updating the application by running sqldsc.exe update
  • Calling portal API at https://api.sqldsc.com for licensing
