Access to Wallarm API via Proxy

These instructions describe the steps to configure access to Wallarm API via the proxy server.

  • https://api.wallarm.com/ for the EU cloud

  • https://us1.api.wallarm.com/ for the US cloud

To configure access, please assign new values to the environment variables defining the proxy server used in the /etc/environment file:

  • https_proxy to define a proxy for the HTTPS protocol

  • http_proxy to define a proxy for the HTTP protocol

  • no_proxy to define the list of the resources proxy should not be used for

https_proxy and http_proxy values

Assign the <scheme>://<proxy_user>:<proxy_pass>@<host>:<port> string values to the https_proxy and http_proxy variables:

  • <scheme> defines the protocol used. It should match the protocol that the current environment variable sets up proxy for

  • <proxy_user> defines the username for proxy authorization

  • <proxy_pass> defines the password for proxy authorization

  • <host> defines a host of the proxy server

  • <port> defines a port of the proxy server

no_proxy value

To the no_proxy variable, assign the array of IP addresses and/or domains of the resources which proxy should not be used for:

  • 127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.8, 127.0.0.9 and localhost for correct WAF node operation

  • additional addresses in the format: "<res_1>, <res_2>, <res_3>, <res_4>, ..." where <res_1>, <res_2>, <res_3>, and <res_4> are the IP addresses and/or domains

Example of the file /etc/environment

An example of the file /etc/environment below demonstrates the following configuration:

  • HTTPS and HTTP requests are proxied to the 1.2.3.4 host with the 1234 port, using the admin username and the 01234 password for authorization on the proxy server.

  • Proxying is disabled for the requests sent to 127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.8, 127.0.0.9, and localhost.

https_proxy=http://admin:01234@1.2.3.4:1234
http_proxy=http://admin:01234@1.2.3.4:1234
no_proxy="127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.8, 127.0.0.9, localhost"
