Hi,

does anyone know how to configure the proxy in the UiRobot.exe.config file when it is necessary to include user authentication?. It is possible?.

Best Regards

Hi Miguel,

Hmm… an idea would be to set the proxy in Windows directly: Start -> Configure proxy server and then follow the steps in the guide to put those settings in the .config file: https://robot.uipath.com/docs/redirecting-robots-through-a-proxy-server#section-editing-the-configuration-files

I have also found this: https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-ide/suggestions/2397357-fix-it-so-that-net-apps-can-access-http-thru-auth

<system.net>
<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" />
</system.net>

I am not sure I understand very well your request. If not, please give me more details.

Thanks!

Thank you very much for your answer OVI.

The option

useDefaultCredentials=“true”

fails me.

I’m trying to use the google cloud OCR but I can’t connect to it through the proxy of my organization that has user authentication. I have the proxy configured in internet explorer and it works well through the browser.

Then I don`t understand why UiPath cannot connect to google cloud if I configure the UiRobot.exe.config in the way that you’ve showed before.

That’s why I was asking if there was any other way to include user authentication data.
