I have installed the latest version of the Bentley Connection Client and I am trying to work out a way of deploying Proxy Settings to all of our client machines. Our security team doesn't allow the use of a whitelist and I can't have each user entering their own proxy settings.
Does Bentley have an answer for this (registry key?)? How are other organisations handling this?
Proxy settings are stored in HKCU\Software\Bentley\LicenseService. I propose creating a proxy service account with a password only you know. Configure the proxy settings using the Bentley Licensing Tool on one computer yourself. Then export the registry key above, and push it to user profiles on other client machines. This will enable CONNECT Licensing-based products to communicate through your proxy server.
I think it would be nice if you could set a custom key in HKLM\Software\Bentley\LicenseService for the entire machine.
