      Description

      Description

      Some customers are behind a proxy where they use a proxy PAC file, when using the Appc CLI this can lead to a bad UX where the customer may have two possible proxy URLs and only through trial and error can they tell which URL will work, a working URL can also go to not working without easy warning also.

      There are node packages that exist to allow resolving a proxy URL from a given PAC file, for example https://www.npmjs.com/package/pac-proxy-agent, I'm not sure how useful this would be and whether this problem is better solved in a lower level module such as request itself

      Example usage

      I would imagine this would be similar to the CA File support we have, so setting it would be set in the appc config like so appc config set proxypac C:\Users\Ewan\proxy.pac
