Adapters AWS connect to with Perimeter server

The AWS adapter allows you to connect via a proxy but not via the perimeters servers.

How will this idea be used?

In our infrastructure we have perimeters server to communicate on the Internet. I had to make a new network configuration and open the firewalls for it to work because the current adapter does not use the perimeters server.

To simplify the use of the AWS adapter, would it be possible to add the configuration of the perimeters servers in the adapter.

After that, I could delete the network configuration and increase the security of it.

    I wouldn't use my enterprise proxy because we have Secure Proxy and perimeter servers. With your solution, it not possible to use Secure Proxy . In my case the enterprise proxy is only use by customers and not by servers,files and others.

    It's very difficult to add PS support?

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valued. This idea aligns with our strategy and one that we have added to our roadmap. Please check back periodically for updates. For now, we do support the use of a proxy.

    Proxy support for AWS S3

    You can provide a proxy support for AWS S3 either through a workflow BP definition or using a property file. A new property file,, is introduced to connect AWS S3 to the proxy server.
