    Configuring Proxy Server Settings

    From the Administration workspace, you can configure a proxy server that Junos Space Network Management Platform and its installed applications can use. For example, when you initiate an action to download the DMI schemas from the Subversion repository of Juniper Networks, Junos Space Platform accesses the Subversion repository through the proxy server, if the proxy server is configured.

    You can configure a proxy server in Junos Space Platform if you are a user who is assigned the privileges of a Super Administrator or System Administrator. If you are a User Administrator creating a custom role, you can assign the privileges of a Super Administrator or System Administrator to the new role so that when you assign this role to a user, the user has the necessary permissions to configure a proxy server.

    To configure a proxy server:

    1. On the Junos Space Platform user interface, select Administration > Proxy Server.

      You are taken to the Proxy Server page. If an existing proxy server is configured, the settings are displayed.

    2. Click the pencil icon (Add/Edit Proxy server) to add a proxy server or edit an existing proxy server.

      The fields on the Proxy Server page can now be edited.

    3. In the Proxy Address text box, enter the IP address of the proxy server.

      Note:

      • Depending on whether the Junos Space fabric is configured with only IPv4 addresses or both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, Junos Space Platform allows you to enter an IPv4 address or either an IPv4 or IPv6 address respectively for the proxy server.
      • The IPv4 and IPv6 addresses that you use must be valid addresses. Refer to http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space for the list of restricted IPv4 addresses and http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-address-space for the list of restricted IPv6 addresses.
    4. In the Port text box, enter the port number of the proxy server.

      You must enter a port number that must be in the range 0 through 65,535.

    5. (Optional) In the User Name text box, enter the username that you want to use for authentication.

      The maximum number of characters allowed is 255; other restrictions may be imposed by the proxy server depending on its configuration.

    6. (Optional) Enter the authentication password in the Password text box.

      The maximum number of characters allowed is 255; other restrictions may be imposed by the proxy server depending on its configuration.

    7. Do one of the following:
      • Click Save to save the proxy server configuration.

        The proxy server settings that you entered are saved and the fields on the page are no longer editable.

      • Click Cancel to cancel the proxy server configuration.

        The proxy server settings that you entered are discarded and the fields on the page are no longer editable.

      Note: Optionally, you can click Clear to clear the proxy server settings that you entered, and reenter the proxy server settings.

    8. To enable the proxy server configuration, select the Enable Proxy Server check box.

      Note: You must enable the proxy server configuration for Junos Space Platform to use the configured proxy server.

    Junos Space Platform and applications installed on Junos Space Platform can use the configured proxy server.
