network proxy is an intermediary server between Apidog and the server. A
proxy server acts as a security barrier, representing you to make requests to websites and other internet resources, and preventing others from accessing your internal network.
By default, Apidog uses the
default proxy configurationto send API requests or access the internet.
default proxy configurationapplies to all networked services, including connecting to the Apidog server and sending API requests.
API request proxy configurationapplies only to sending API requests, not to connecting to the Apidog server, and can be configured separately for Apidog to use the
default proxy configurationor
custom configurationwhen sending requests.
If your system's configured proxy requires authentication, you can enter the corresponding authentication information in
Settings - Network Proxyin the lower left corner of the page.

Configure Custom Proxy
Configure a custom proxy to use a proxy server other than the system proxy to send API requests. You can send HTTP requests, HTTPS requests, or both types of requests through the custom proxy.
API Type: Choose the type of requests to send through the proxy server. HTTP and HTTPS are checked by default.
Proxy Server: Input the hostname or IP address and port number of the proxy server. (Do not include the protocol before the hostname or IP address)
Bypass: Input a comma-separated list of hosts that requests to those hosts will not use the custom proxy.
Authentication: If the proxy server requires authentication, turn on this switch and input the proxy server's username and password.
If your system's configured proxy server requires authentication, input the identity information in Apidog. In
Settings - Network Proxy in the lower left corner, under
Default Proxy Configuration for
System Proxy or
Custom, turn on

Password required by the proxy server, then select
Save and Restart Apidog.
