Proxy Settings

Proxy Settings Overview

A proxy server acts as a gateway between end users and the internet. It's an intermediary server that separates end users from the websites they browse. Proxy servers provide varying levels of functionality, security, and privacy depending on the use case, needs, or company policy.

If you're using a proxy server, internet traffic flows through the proxy server on its way to the address requested. The request then comes back through that same proxy server, with exceptions to this rule, and finally, the proxy server forwards the data received from the website to the end user.

When a tester is required to use either a Whitelisted or Tunnel proxy server to access the website/application under test, the proxy server details must be specified and managed in Functionize at the Team, Project and/or Test Settings levels.  The IP Address and Port for your Whitelisted or Tunnel proxy server can be obtained from the Functionize Support Team.

Note: Only users with Team Admin access will be able to manage at this level.
