Hi Arslan,

please move this question into the Spark forum.

Spark does support a HTTP proxy only to download updates or new plugins but not for login. There are plans to use BOSH (similar to Sparkweb) but it may take a while before Spark does support this.


Hi LG,

may i know whether spark is supporting Http proxy for login also now i.e spark2.6.0 version? I am badly in need of that.
