The VMware Identity Manager machine accesses the cloud application catalog and other Web services on the Internet. If your network configuration provides Internet access through an HTTP proxy, you must adjust your proxy settings on the VMware Identity Manager machine.

Enable your proxy to handle only Internet traffic. To ensure that the proxy is set up correctly, set the parameter for internal traffic to no-proxy within the domain.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager console and navigate to the Appliance Settings > VA Configuration page.
  2. Click Manage Configuration and then click Proxy Configuration.
  3. Enable Proxy.
  4. In Proxy host with port text box, enter the proxy name and port. For example,
  5. In the Non-Proxied hosts text box, enter the non-proxy hosts that are accessed without going through the proxy server.

    Use a comma to separate a list of host names.

  6. Click Save.
