Does Splunk Enterprise rely on OS for proxy configuration or does it have its own settings for proxy configuration?

My customer is using proxy with authentication to access the internet for users and applications. Does Splunk Enterprise rely on OS for proxy configuration or does it have its own settings for proxy configuration?

Same issue on Splunk 8.0.x. I have tried any hint I found. Including addi HTTP_PROXY= into splunk-launch.conf for access to Internet via proxy and server.conf for access via S2S to any other Splunk node via proxy. DOES NOT work.

I'm not sure if this is what you're after, but take a look at: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.3/admin/Specifyaproxyserver

Splunk uses the usual http_proxy" and https_proxy environment variables for proxy configuration. To add authentication, try using "HTTP_PROXY = username:password@proxyserver.net:8080". I haven't used this config before myself, but it's worth giving it a go.

Didn't work for me. I get a " Error resolving: Name or service not known" when attempting to browse apps in the UI.

Splunk has its own settings:

Configuration is done in the splunk-launch.conf file.

This link is now dead. It is fascinating to me that people have had this issue for the past three years or more, and Splunk still does not make it easy to find an answer.
