Why are agents receiving a "Proxy Authentication" prompt when they launch the Oracle Service Cloud agent console?
Oracle Service Cloud agent console, all versions
When launching the Oracle Service Cloud console your agents may receive a prompt to enter their proxy credentials with the following information:
"Your network configuration requires the use of a Proxy Server. Please enter your username and password for use in authenticating your session with the server."
Oracle Service Cloud does not require proxy authentication to access the CX console. If you receive this message it indicates that a local proxy server within your network will not process an HTTP/HTTPS request until proxy user credentials are entered. These credentials will be independent of any Oracle Service Cloud user accounts.
In order to ensure that all traffic can reach our servers in an unrestricted manner, we require that any proxy servers or web filters used to route Oracle Service Cloud traffic be configured with authentication exclusion rules for the following domains. Use of a custom VHOST on your site may require additional entries:
*.livelook.com and *.livelook.net (for Cobrowse functionality)
