Configuring Recast Proxy for Recast Management Tasks

Introduction

Recast Proxy is a service that runs under a service account. It can be used to run actions as a service account or for management task like read from Active Directory to populate scopes, web dashboards, and schedule kiosk profile application and automation actions. It is also required for collecting warranty information with Endpoint Insights. If Proxy has not been installed yet, see: Installing Recast Proxy.

Authorize Proxy in Recast Management Server

Before actions will be sent from the Recast Management Server to the Proxy, the Proxy needs to be authorized. Please note that by default, the Recast Management Server will auto approve proxies that are installed in the same domain as the Recast Management Server. If a proxy is installed in another domain, you must approve it manually.

To approve the proxy manually, open the Configure Recast Management Server application (or connect to the Recast Management Server web interface) and navigate to "Proxies". Your new Proxy should be visible, but Authorized will be listed as "False" Click on Edit to approve the proxy. The Edit Recast Proxy window will open.


Once saved the Authorized checkbox will fill in. (The checkbox after the version number.)

Create Route

In order for the Recast Management Server to run actions through the Service Account Proxy, a route will need to be created that uses the Service Account.

Click on the Routes section of the Recast Management Server. The routes page will open and will look like the below screenshot.
