If your vRealize Log Insight appliance is restricted to the public network or the intranet, you can configure an HTTP proxy to let vRealize Log Insight send webhook notifications to endpoints such as Slack, PagerDuty, vRO, or a custom endpoint, which can be accessed through an isolated network.


Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight web user interface as a Super Admin user, or a user associated with a role that has the relevant permissions. See Create and Modify Roles for more information. The URL format of the web user interface is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.


  1. Expand the main menu and navigate to Configuration > Proxy.
  3. In the Name text box, enter a unique name for your proxy.
  4. In the Host/IP text box, enter the FQDN or IP address of your proxy server.
  5. In the Proxy Port text box, enter the port of your proxy server.
  6. In the Username and Password text boxes, enter the username and password for authentication with your proxy server while sending webhook notifications.
  7. To verify that the connection with your proxy works, click Test.
  8. Click Save.

What to do next

You can use this HTTP proxy when you configure a webhook to send alert notifications. For more information, see Configure a Webhook.
Note: The cache settings on the proxy determines the validation frequency of the username and password.
