Create Global HTTP Proxy profile for iOS

Use this profile to ensure that the entire HTTP network traffic runs via a proxy. That way, the internet connection to and from the supervised devices will always be routed through a global HTTP proxy.

If you select the manual proxy type for the configuration, you will need the address of the proxy server (incl. port) and, optionally, a user name and a password to log in to the proxy server. However, if you select the auto option for the proxy type, the PAC URL (proxy auto-configuration URL) will suffice.

Make the settings as follows:

  • Profile name: Enter a name for the profile here.
  • Proxy type: Auto
    • Proxy PAC URL: Enter the PAC URL (proxy auto-configuration URL).
    • Allow direct connection if PAC is unreachable (iOS only): Select this option to allow the iOS devices to bypass the proxy server if it can’t be reached.
    • Allow Bypassing proxy to access captive networks (iOS only): If this option is selected, the proxy settings will be bypassed as soon as the device is located in a recognized Wi-Fi network.
