Use Splunk Web with a proxy server
When Splunk Web is located behind a proxy server, users may have trouble with Splunk Web links that access the Splunk website. For example, some Manager pages link directly to the download site for Splunk apps and many "learn more" links will take you to the online documentation.
To resolve this, simply set the
HTTP_PROXY environment variable. For permanent results, you can specify the setting in the
splunk-launch.conf configuration file, located in
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/ on *nix systems and
%SPLUNK_HOME%\etc\ on Windows.
splunk-launch.conf, add this attribute/value pair:
HTTP_PROXY = <IP address or host name>:<port number>
HTTP_PROXY = 10.1.8.11:8787
Important: If your proxy server only handles HTTPS requests, you must use the following attribute/value pair:
HTTPS_PROXY = <IP address or host name>:<port number>
HTTPS_PROXY = 10.1.8.11:8888
