Using a proxy for conda packages

You can configure Anaconda Enterprise to use a proxy for conda packages, if your organization’s network security policy requires it. To do so, you’ll need to do the following:

Obtain your proxy variables

In order to complete the following sections, you need an appropriate configuration for your proxy. This usually takes the form of environment variables:

  • http_proxy/HTTP_PROXY
  • https_proxy/HTTPS_PROXY
  • no_proxy/NO_PROXY

Ask your system administator to confirm which variables to use.

Verify the proxy works

After you’ve configured the platform, you can test your changes to verify that it’s using the proxy.

  1. Log into Anaconda Enterprise.
  2. Click Projects, and open the project you want to use to test the proxy.


If the project already has an open session, you’ll need to stop the current session and start a new session.

  1. Open a terminal window within JupyterLab.

  2. Set and export your proxy variables.

  3. Verify the proxy works by running the following command:

    conda create -n testenv python

Configure Anaconda Enterprise

Once you’ve confirmed your proxy works, go to Setting global config variables and follow the steps there to apply those variables to all future sessions, deployments, and jobs.

The lines you add to the global config should look something like the following, with your specific proxy URLs and domains substituded in:

no_proxy: *
