Initial registration

To register the proxy, you will need to provide Ubuntu SSO credentials for the desired account you wish to link the proxy with, and answer some simple questions about your deployment:

sudo snap-proxy register --https


sudo snap-proxy register

If the --https option is omitted, the resulting assertion instructing client devices to use the proxy instead of the upstream store, will instruct them to use HTTP to connect to the proxy instead of HTTPS.

You can examine your proxy's registration status with:

snap-proxy status

This will show the registration status of your proxy, as well as local status information of this server.

For evaluation purposes, we automatically grant the use of up to 25 devices.

At this point, your proxy will be assigned a Store ID, which can be retrieved with the status command. This will be used in later commands and to identify your proxy for support purposes.

After successful registration it's advised to securely store the private key generated during the process. This key is your proxy's identity. The key pair can be viewed using:

sudo snap-proxy config proxy.key.public proxy.key.private

Next step

Configure the proxy to serve HTTPS traffic if --https registration option was used, or proceed to configure client devices.
