BWC behind an HTTP proxy¶
If your BWC installation is running behind a proxy, you will need to configure
pip to utilize your proxy otherwise some CLI commands such as
packs.install won’t work.
Note About Pack Install¶
Currently, the instructions for modifying
pip configurations still
st2 pack install to work via proxy. This is a known issue and will be addressed fully in
a future release.
In the meantime, to allow pack installation to work with the new
st2 pack install
command that was released in v2.1, you need to modify the following files so that
they contain the three environment variables “HTTP_PROXY”, “HTTPS_PROXY”, and
“no_proxy” as shown below (specifically, the “env” section of each):
vagrant@st2vagrant:~$ cat /opt/stackstorm/packs/packs/actions/setup_virtualenv.yaml --- name: "setup_virtualenv" runner_type: "python-script" description: "Set up virtual environment for the provided packs" enabled: true entry_point: "pack_mgmt/setup_virtualenv.py" parameters: packs: type: "array" items: type: "string" update: type: "boolean" default: false description: "Check this option if the virtual environment already exists and if you only want to perform an update and installation of new dependencies. If you don't check this option, the virtual environment will be destroyed then re-created. If you check this and the virtual environment doesn't exist, it will create it." env: type: "object" description: "Optional environment variables" required: false default: HTTP_PROXY: http://< Proxy IP >:< Proxy Port > HTTPS_PROXY: http://< Proxy IP >:< Proxy Port > no_proxy: 127.0.0.1 vagrant@st2vagrant:~$ cat /opt/stackstorm/packs/packs/actions/download.yaml --- name: "download" runner_type: "python-script" description: "Downloads packs and places it in the local content repository." enabled: true entry_point: "pack_mgmt/download.py" parameters: packs: type: "array" items: type: "string" required: true abs_repo_base: type: "string" default: "/opt/stackstorm/packs/" immutable: true verifyssl: type: "boolean" default: true force: type: "boolean" description: "Set to True to force install the pack and skip StackStorm version compatibility check" required: false default: false env: default: HTTP_PROXY: http://< Proxy IP >:< Proxy Port > HTTPS_PROXY: http://< Proxy IP >:< Proxy Port > no_proxy: 127.0.0.1
Make sure to fill in < Proxy IP > and < Proxy Port > with the IP address/hostname and
port for your proxy, and run
st2ctl reload to allow these to take effect. This should allow
st2 pack install to work via the configured proxy.
To configure git you need to set global git
http.proxy option in the
.gitconfig file for the user under which BWC action runner component is
git config is stored at
~/.gitconfig. To configure it, you need to put
the following lines in the config:
[http] proxy = http://user:firstname.lastname@example.org:port
You can achieve the same this by running
git config command which will
write into the config for you.
git config --global http.proxy http://user:email@example.com:port
To configure pip you need to edit pip config for the user under which BWC action runner component is running.
pip config is stored at
$HOME/.config/pip/pip.conf. To configure it, you
need to put the following lines in the config:
[global] proxy = [user:passwd@]proxy.server.com:port
