You can create a proxy configuration that enables Tanzu Mission Control to connect with clusters that are protected by a proxy server.

The Kubernetes clusters that you manage using Tanzu Mission Control run cluster agent extensions that make connections to Tanzu Mission Control to allow bilateral communication. This applies to Tanzu Kubernetes clusters that you register with Tanzu Mission Control and their workload clusters, as well as clusters that were created elsewhere and subsequently attached.

If you have a proxy server that manages outbound traffic for your clusters, the cluster agent extensions must identify the proxy server and get authorization to communicate with Tanzu Mission Control. By creating a proxy configuration object, you can consistently reuse the proxy settings for multiple clusters.
