Using Hoverfly behind a proxy¶
In some environments, you may only be able to access the internet via a proxy. For example, your organization may route all traffic through a proxy for security reasons.
If this is the case, you will need to configure Hoverfly to work with the ‘upstream’ proxy.
This configuration value can be easily set when starting an instance of Hoverfly.
For example, if the ‘upstream’ proxy is running on port
8080 on host
hoverctl start --upstream-proxy http://corp.proxy:8080
Configuring Hoverfly with a PAC file¶
If you have a PAC file for configuring clients with the proxy set up in your environment, you can use this to configure Hoverfly.
hoverctl start --pac-file path/to/file.pac
Upstream proxy authentication¶
If the proxy you are using uses HTTP basic authentication, you can provide the authentication credentials as part of the upstream proxy configuration setting.
hoverctl start --upstream-proxy http://my-user:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080
Currently, HTTP basic authentication is the only supported authentication method for an authenticated proxy.
