Configuring Proxy SettingsLocate this document in the navigation structure


The user account you use for managing the proxy settings should be assigned to the SAP_JAVA_WS_ADMIN_TEC role. For more information, see Authorizations and User Management of the Application Server Java .


To use Web services clients for external communication, you have to configure the global HTTP proxy settings first. These global settings affect all Web services that are deployed on the server.


  1. Log on to the SAP NetWeaver Administrator.

  2. Choose Start of the navigation path SOA Next navigation step Technical Configuration Next navigation step SOA Middleware Global Settings End of the navigation path.

    Alternatively, you can use the quick link /nwa/middleware-settings as follows:


  3. Choose HTTP Proxy .

  4. In the Host and Port fields, enter the host name and the HTTP port of the proxy server.

  5. If the proxy server requires authentication, enter a user name and a password.

  6. In the Exclude List field, enter the addresses (part or whole) which you want to access without using the proxy server.

    You can add the IP addresses and domains that you want to access directly. Make sure the addresses are separated by the vertical bar (|) character.

  7. If you choose Bypass proxy server for local addresses , the system accesses local addresses directly without using the proxy.


    The system considers an address to be local if it meets one of the following conditions:

    • Contains host names in the system domain. For example, if the system is at the host, then * addresses are considered to be local.

    • Contains non-fully qualified host names, like example .

    • The host name localhost .

    • The IP address:

    In case an address is specified like IP address, the system considers it to be non-local, even if it is in the local domain.

  8. Choose Save .
