To create an iOS Global HTTP Proxy profile

Mar 24, 2014

This profile allows you to specify global HTTP proxy settings for an iOS device. You can only deploy one of these policies per device.

Note: This profile is only supported on supervised iOS devices running iOS 6.0 and later.
  1. In the Device Manager web console, on the Policies tab, under iOS, click Configurations.
  2. In the New Configuration menu, click Profiles and Settings > Global HTTP Proxy.
  3. In the Global HTTP proxy dialog box, enter an Identifier, which is a unique string that is used to identify the profile in the console. Must be unique and not used for any other iOS policy. You can also enter a Display Name, which is how the policy name will be displayed to the device user. All other fields in this dialog box are optional, such as adding a description, or setting automatic policy removal.
  4. Click the Proxy tab. Enter the following information to configure the HTTP proxy server to be used:
    1. Proxy Configuration. If you choose manual proxy type, you need the proxy server address including its port and optionally a user name and password into the proxy server. If you choose auto proxy type, you can enter a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) URL.
    2. Hostname/IP address for the proxy server. The proxy server's network address.
    3. Port for the proxy server. Enter the proxy server's port number.
    4. Username. Optional. The user name used to authenticate to the proxy server.
    5. Password. Optional. The password used to authenticate to the proxy server.
    6. Allow by passing proxy to access captive networks (iOS 7 only). Select if you want to allow the device to bypass the proxy server and be able to access captive networks.
  5. Click Create.
