Using HTTP Proxy Server Over SSL Fails with Error "Failed to communicate with proxy: null/-1" (Doc ID 1076208.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Service Bus - Version 2.6.1RP and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Seeing the following error when using the HTTP Proxy with HTTPS protocol:

error "Failed to communicate with proxy: null/-1"

This happens in a scenario where a business service uses an endpoint URL for this service with https:// e.g. https://hostname. This business service is using a Proxy Server. ALSB/OSB is not sending user auth info to the Proxy Server which leads to a Proxy or Server Authentication Required

After this exception, ALSB/OSB is trying to invoke end point URL itself and bypassing the proxy server.
