Description of the outbound HTTP connection configuration script | HCL Digital Experience

The configuration settings of an outbound HTTP connection configuration script are described here.

The proxy-rules setting is the root of a configuration profile. The configuration profile for which the script is applied is specified in the configuration task that is run against this script. The proxy-rules setting can contain the following subsettings:
Use the variables setting to specify endpoint variables or dynamic policy variables. Variables are used in the URL attribute of the policy setting, or they are used in a variable value. For more details about how to use variables, read Variables.
Use the mapping setting to map incoming requests to a target URL, based on their context path. Therefore, each mapping must specify a contextpath attribute and optionally a url attribute. Optionally, mappings can declare policy settings that represent mapping specific access policies. For more details about how to use mappings, read Context path mappings. Mappings contain a name attribute that gives an administrative name for this mapping. This attribute is used by administrative tasks to identify the mapping for update tasks or delete tasks.
Use the policy setting to define an access policy for a specific URL pattern. A proxy configuration can contain multiple policy definitions. If no policy is specified at all, the portal denies all incoming requests. For more details about policies, read Access policies.
Use ipfilter setting to define one or more IP patterns. You can use these IP filter patterns to either grant or deny a particular IP address or a set of addresses access to the Ajax proxy. For more details about IP filtering rules, read IP filtering.
Use the meta-data setting to specify general configuration properties of the proxy, for example HTTP-related parameters. Each meta-data setting must have a name and a value. To get a list of configuration parameters that are available in the portal, read General configuration parameters by metadata.
