Create Global HTTP Proxy profile for iOS

Use this profile to ensure that all HTTP network traffic goes through a proxy. The Internet connections to and from the supervised devices are thus always routed through a global HTTP proxy.

If you select the manual proxy type for the configuration, you need the address of the proxy server (incl. port) and optionally a username and password to log in to the proxy server. If you select Auto for the proxy type instead, the PAC URL (proxy auto-configuration URL) is sufficient.

  • First proceed as described here.
  • Select VPN as the profile that you want to add. The following dialog will open:

Make the settings as follows:

  •  Profile name: Enter a name for the profile here.
  •  Proxy type: Auto
    •  Proxy PAC URL: Enter the PAC URL (proxy auto-configuration URL).
    •  Allow direct connection if PAC is unreachable: Select this option to allow the iOS devices to bypass the proxy server if it can’t be reached.
    •  Allow Bypassing proxy to access captive networks: If this option is selected, the proxy settings will be bypassed as soon as the device is located in a recognized Wi-Fi network.

  • Proxy type: Manual
    •  Proxy server and port: Enter the server address and the port of the proxy server.
    •  Username and Password: Optionally, enter a user name and password for logging in to the proxy server.
    •  Allow Bypassing proxy to access captive networks: If this option is selected, the proxy settings will be bypassed as soon as the device is a located in a recognized Wi-Fi network.

Now you can distribute the newly created profile to users / groups / devices.

  • To do this, select the desired profile in the left-hand column of the Administration Portal and click Assign.
  • Now select the users, group templates or devices to whom you want to assign this pro­file. 
Note! You can also assign the profiles under Administration→ Users or Group Templates.
