Create an Android Proxy Settings Policy

The Android Proxy Settings Policy ensures that all HTTP and HTTPS network traffic is passed through it exclusively. This ensures data security since all personal and corporate data is filtered through the policy.

Prerequisites

Considerations

  • Double-check these settings before applying them to any devices. If you apply an incorrect proxy setting, your device may lose network connection and get into an unusable state.
  • This policy is supported for the following management modes:
    • Work Profile (Personal device)
    • Work Profile (Company-owned device)
    • Fully managed device
    • Dedicated device

To create an Android Proxy Settings policy:

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal
  2. Go to DEVICE MANAGEMENT > Policy Management.
  3. In the All tab, click (+).
  4. On the New Policy panel, select the Android tab.
  5. Select the Proxy Settings policy from the list, then click configure.
  6. On the New Policy panel, optionally enter a new name for the policy, or keep the default. Policy names must be unique.
  7. (Optional) For Policy Notes, enter details like when you created the policy, where you tested it, and where you deployed it.
  8. Under Settings, select the Proxy Type.
    • Host: For a direct proxy, set the Host and Port.
    • PAC URI: For a PAC script proxy, set the PAC script URI field.
  9. Under Add multiple exclusion hosts, click Add Host and enter a domain name or IP address in the field.
    • Click Add Host to add additional exclusions.
    • Click the trash icon to remove an exclusion.
  10. (Optional) Select the Device Groups tab. Select one or more device groups where you will apply this policy. For device groups with multiple OS member types, the policy is applied only to the supported OS.
  11. (Optional) Select the Devices tab. Select one or more devices where you will apply this policy.

Tip:

For this policy to take effect, you must specify a device or a device group.
