How can i set HTTP_PROXY information on jobs from remote bamboo agent

I have spun up a new bamboo agent and i'm behind a corporate proxy server.  I'm unable to figure out how to get the proxy info into bamboo.

I tried setting a BAMBOO VARIABLE but I don't think that's the correct approach.


I tried adding

but it doesn't seem to propagate to the jobs.


Any suggestions?



My work around has been to embed every task i want to do in a script that sets the proxy settings.

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for your inquire.

Have you tried adding the property as "-Dhttp.proxyHost=HOST"?


Sets a system property value. The property variable is a string with no spaces that represents the name of the property. The value variable is a string that represents the value of the property. If value is a string with spaces, then enclose it in quotation marks (for example -Dfoo="foo bar").

Please, refer to documentation for further information.

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Are you talking about on the environment line for a Command Task or somewhere else?
