Using a proxy server when connecting to a cloud license server

Hi,

How do we (is it possible to) configure our application - which is a desktop application - to use a local proxy server when communicating with an FNO cloud license server?

Our application is a Java application and we use a combination of the licensing web services (e.g. we use the health and features end points) and capability request.

Examples

For features end point we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/api/1.0/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/features

For health end point we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/api/1.0/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/health

For submitting a capability request we use:

https://example.compliance.flexnetoperations.com/instances/PPPPPPPPPP/request

We use FNO cloud instance.

 

Thanks.

Hi @ageorge ,

In the JavaXT User Guide there is mention of configuring the capabilityrequest example to use a proxy server:

For the REST APIs I'd imagine the proxy server would need to be configured to forward to the requests to the appropriate endpoint on a given port.

Thanks,

Hi @jberthold ,

Thanks for the response.

I saw the entry in the JavaXT and it says "proxy server (which has been set up to communicate with the back-office server)".

In that case, will the set up to communicate with the back-office server be any different from the configuration you imagine needs to be done on the proxy server for the REST APIs?

Hi @ageorge ,

Sorry but I don't have any experience configuring proxy servers so I don't know for sure ...

Thx,

Jim
