How to configure SquaredUp to use a proxy

If you use a proxy server you may get an error when activating SquaredUp or configuring an OAuth Web API provider.

This provider has not been authorized (or there is an error with its configuration)

You need to configure SquaredUp to use the proxy, as described below. This will configure SquaredUp to use the proxy settings from Internet Explorer. For more information see the defaultProxy element article from Microsoft.

Adding a proxy to the web.config

You will need to connect to your SquaredUp server.

  1. Edit the web.config file located in the squaredupv4 folder.

    For an Azure Marketplace deployment the squaredupv4 folder will typically be located at F:\squaredupv4.

    For an install using the downloadable installer the default location is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv4, but a custom location may have been chosen during the installation.

  2. Add the following XML snippet under the <configuration> section:

    <system.net>
     <defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true">
       <proxy usesystemdefault="true" />
     </defaultProxy>
    </system.net>
  3. If your proxy uses Active Directory for authentication, the responsible team will need to give your SquaredUp application pool user(s) access.
