Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • Unable to connect Azure subscription from vRealize Operations 8.x.
  • A TCP dump confirms multiple calls going to Azure before even creating a connection.  These calls are blocked because they are not going through the proxy.
  • Curl checks are passed from vRealize Operations to Azure subscription, for example:
curl -X GET --proxy proxy.cognizant.com:6050 https://login.microsoftonline.com/id/oauth2/token -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -F "grant_type=client_credentials" -F "client_id=client_id" -F "client_secret=client_secret" -F "resource=https://management.core.windows.net/"
{"token_type":"Bearer","expires_in":"3599","ext_expires_in":"3599","expires_on":"1616763937","not_before":"1616760037","resource":"https://management.core.windows.net/","access_token":"access_token"}
