Issue/Introduction

JasperSoft Studio Professional 6.2.x and later release - Dynamic HTTP Proxy Entry Missing.

Steps to Reproduce 

  1. Open JasperSoft Studio 6.2.x and later release 
  2. Go to Window > Preferences > General > Network Connections
  3. Go under Proxy Entries and Look for HTTP (Dynamic Proxy) 

Cause

This is a JasperSoft bug JSS-1550. 

This issue relates to a known platform bug of Eclipse: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=476007 As it appears, a community user attempted a code fix to resolve the issue, but no one in the Eclipse team validated the patch and merge it into the next releases. Therefore as a workaround, Jaspersoft developer suggested to manually specify the proxy configuration in the Studio instead of relying on automatic settings. Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Environment

JasperSoft Studio Professional 6.2.x and later releases

Resolution

As it appears in this community discussion , a community user attempted a code fix to resolve the issue, but no one in the Eclipse team validated the patch and merge it into the next releases. Therefore as a workaround, Jaspersoft developer suggested to manually specify the proxy configuration in the Studio instead of relying on automatic settings. 

Having said that workaround available is: 
1) Use JasperSoft 6.1 (If you encounter any report issue which is developed in JasperSoft 6.2.x and updated in JasperSoft 6.1) then please recompile the report using JasperSoft 6.2.1

2) Work with JasperSoft Studio 6.2.x or later release from outside corporate network with Active Provider set to 'Direct' and no manual Proxy configuration. 

3) Or have network security team bypass the JasperSoft Server IP addresses for specific client machine to connect studio from.

4) And in case if you have an active CA VPN access get connected through it which will give you a successful connection without configuring Studio PROXY.
