The Windows installer allows you to enter a proxy address during installation, so in the majority of cases you don't need to worry about adding extra command line parameters. Command line parameters are particularly useful when you're deploying a Group Policy installation or other automated task.
The OneAgent installer recognizes the
PROXY parameter. The value of this parameter is the proxy server address. Add the port number following a colon, for example
22.214.171.124:8080. For an authenticating proxy you can specify username and password like this
username:email@example.com:8080 where both username and password need to be URL encoded. We also support IPv6 addresses.
Parameter names are case sensitive, so use
ALL CAPS for parameter names.
Passing a proxy address to the installer
Let's say you've downloaded your Dynatrace OneAgent installer to the
C:\Users\Admin\Downloads folder and your proxy IP address is
10.1.1.5. In such a scenario you would begin the installation like this:
Auto-detect proxy settings
To enable detection of global proxy settings during installation, type
auto as the
PROXY parameter value.
