Configuring proxy settings

A proxy or a proxy server is an intermediary agent between your device and the internet. It serves as a hub through which internet requests are processed. Proxy servers can be used to improve the security of your network, as they can provide additional encryption services for your data and can be configured to block access to malicious websites.

Even if Task Capture can be used offline, for the below cases an Internet connection is required:

Depending on the Task Capture installation status there are two ways to set up the proxy:

Task Capture already installed

To configure the proxy for a Task Capture instance that is already installed follow the below steps:

  1. Close all Task Capture instances.
  2. Create a proxy.json file with the following structure:
        "host": "IP address or host name of your proxy device",
        "port": "listening port of the server, usually 443",
        "username": "username",
        "password": "password"
        "host": "IP address or host name of your proxy device",
        "port": "listening port of the server, usually 443",
        "username": "username",
        "password": "password"
  3. Based on the installation type you chose, add the newly created file to the corresponding folders:

    • EXE installation: %appdata%/Task Capture/UiPath Task Capture/Proxy/
    • MSI installation: %programdata%/UiPath Task Capture/Proxy

Configure proxy during installation

Note: You can configure the proxy settings during Task Capture installation only if the MSI installer is used.

As this type of installation signifies that Task Capture can also be activated during the installation phase, use the PROXYCONFIG CLI argument along with the path to the configuration file as a value.


msiexec /i ${task-capture-setup.msi} LICENSECODE=1234-2134-2134-2134 PROXYCONFIG="C:\Users\proxy.client\Desktop\config.json"msiexec /i ${task-capture-setup.msi} LICENSECODE=1234-2134-2134-2134 PROXYCONFIG="C:\Users\proxy.client\Desktop\config.json"

In this case, Task Capture copy-pastes the file to the right folder, applies the settings, and then sends the activation request.

Check out the Installation page for details about the MSI installer.
