REST proxy host configuration is incorrect

Updated on April 6, 2022

Troubleshoot problems with the REST proxy host by reviewing the configuration on the Connect REST rule form.


You cannot send REST requests and responses from Pega Platform.


You incorrectly configured proxy settings to send requests over HTTP or HTTPs on the Connect REST rule form.

Resolving proxy host configuration problems

  • Diagnose the issue by checking for HttpHostConnectException in the Pega Platform log file.
  • Confirm whether the system is sending the request over HTTP or HTTPS. Check that you configured the correct –D settings for each protocol.
  • If you use Pega Platform version 8.6 or later, check that you configured the proxy on the Connect REST rule form.
    For more information, see Creating a Connect REST rule.
