HCL Connections – Configure access for the Tiny Editors Services through a HTTP proxy – Configuration/Documentation error

Take care when configuring access for the Tiny Editor through an HTTP proxy. The Documentation says to modify the “application.conf” in following manner:

ephox {
    proxy {
        http.proxyHost = someproxy.internal.corp
        http.proxyPort = 8080
        https.proxyHost = someproxy.internal.corp
        https.proxyPort = 8443
        http.nonProxyHosts = localhost|*.internal.corp
    }
}

If you follow the official documentation and do not set the values of “http.nonProxyHosts” in the double quotation marks the Tiny Editor WAS Application will start, but some features of Tiny Editor will not work (like Spellchecking). The correct will configuration looks like the following:

An example of proxy settings:

ephox {
    proxy {
        http.proxyHost = someproxy.internal.corp
        http.proxyPort = 8080
        https.proxyHost = someproxy.internal.corp
        https.proxyPort = 8443
        http.nonProxyHosts = "localhost|*.internal.corp"
    }
}

Hope this helps.
