I have created the APEX Rest API (GET) to expose the Data to outside of Salesforce. When I access the API using the Postman I am getting the data without any error.

But when I had given my API to the external person he was not able to access it.He is getting some error and he says that we need to get proxy setting to bypass SSL issue

So what can be the proxy settings for this?

Please help Thanks

  • Please share the actual error message. This could represent any one of a large number of issues. – David Reed Jan 15 '18 at 15:12
  • The error which I am getting is { [Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND test.salesofrce.com at errorException (dns.js:28:10) at GetAddrInfoReqWrap.onlookup [as oncomplete] (dns.js:76:26) code: 'ENOTFOUND', errno: 'ENOTFOUND', syscall: 'getaddrinfo', hostname: 'test.salesofrce.com', host: 'test.salesofrce.com', port: 443 } – Nirav Shah Jan 15 '18 at 15:30
  • They are getting a DNS error because they spelled 'salesforce' wrong. Nothing to do with proxies or SSL. – David Reed Jan 15 '18 at 15:32
  • The spelling was right... it is my typo mistake here – Nirav Shah Jan 15 '18 at 15:33

A proxy protects a network from the outside world. In other words, those settings are specific to the network being used. Consequently, we cannot help you with those settings. You must refer to your proxy's documentation or contact the IT department/help desk to get this type of help.

  • It is working perfectly fine for me if i call it through the Postman... but it is giving the above error when the external person is trying to access it – Nirav Shah Jan 15 '18 at 15:31
  • @NiravShah You are not the external person. You two are on different networks. Their network has a proxy, apparently. We can't help you fix their proxy issues. – sfdcfox Jan 15 '18 at 15:39
