EDGE-00-000001 - User control of proxy settings must be disabled.

Details

This action configures the proxy settings for Microsoft Edge.



If this policy is enabled, Microsoft Edge ignores all proxy-related options specified from the command line.



If this policy is not configured, users can choose their own proxy settings.



This policy overrides the following individual policies:


- ProxyMode


- ProxyPacUrl


- ProxyServer


- ProxyBypassList



Setting the ProxySettings policy accepts the following fields:


- ProxyMode, which allows for the proxy server used by Microsoft Edge to be specified and prevents users from changing proxy settings


- ProxyPacUrl, a URL to a proxy .pac file


- ProxyServer, a URL for the proxy server


- ProxyBypassList, a list of proxy hosts that Microsoft Edge bypasses



For ProxyMode, the following values have the noted impact:


- direct, a proxy is never used and all other fields are ignored.


- system, the system's proxy is used and all other fields are ignored.


- auto_detect, all other fields are ignored.


- fixed_server, the ProxyServer and ProxyBypassList fields are used.


- pac_script, the ProxyPacUrl and ProxyBypassList fields are used.


Solution

Set the policy value for 'Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Edge/Proxy server/ProxySettings' must be set to 'ProxyMode', 'ProxyPacUrl', 'ProxyServer', or 'ProxyBypassList'.
