The proxy can be configured with or without signing into Postman. Follow these steps to enter your proxy settings and configure a proxy:
- In upper the right-hand corner of the app, go to Settings ⚙️
- Select the Proxy tab
There are two proxy options you may select based on your settings:
Default proxy configuration
Postman uses the system's proxy configurations by default to connect to any online services or to send API requests.
If your system proxy requires any credentials to authenticate, follow these steps:
- Inside the proxy settings and under Default Proxy Configuration, tick the box This proxy requires authentication
- Enter the Username and Password
- Hit the button Save and restart Postman
Proxy configurations for sending requests
Use the system proxy
If your organization requires internet traffic to be routed through a proxy, then configure the proxy on your local machine and enable the system proxy option within Postman. Note: Make sure the box Add a custom proxy configuration is unticked.
Add a custom proxy configuration
If the custom proxy is enabled, Postman will respect that for any request that matches the HTTP/HTTPS selection in the proxy settings.
Note: If you are having trouble sending requests, refer to this article.
