About proxies with GitHub Enterprise Server
When a proxy server is enabled for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, outbound messages sent by GitHub Enterprise Server are first sent through the proxy server, unless the destination host is added as an HTTP proxy exclusion. Types of outbound messages include outgoing webhooks, uploading bundles, and fetching legacy avatars. The proxy server's URL is the protocol, domain or IP address, plus the port number, for example
Note: To connect your GitHub Enterprise Server instance to GitHub.com, your proxy configuration must allow connectivity to
api.github.com. For more information, see "Managing GitHub Connect."
If GitHub Actions is enabled for your enterprise, only HTTP proxies are supported. SOCKS5 and HTTPS proxies are not supported. For more information about using GitHub Actions with GitHub Enterprise Server, see "Getting started with GitHub Actions for GitHub Enterprise Server."
