Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: Update Perl image to support proxy configuration Reason: Previously the image could not access remote resources if the customer network required a proxy be used. Result: The perl image will now respect the HTTP_PROXY environment variable for configuring the proxy to use when requesting remote resources during the build process.

separate bug for each image please.

Comment 2 Ben Parees 2016-06-22 16:22:33 UTC
Let's use this bug for the perl image and open new bugs for the eap and jws images.

For perl, the image will need to be updated to auto-configure CPAN to use a proxy.  CPAN configuration details are found here:

Comment 4 Martin Nagy 2016-07-19 12:06:16 UTC
It should be lowercase, so http_proxy, not HTTP_PROXY. Can you please test it with lowercase? I believe https_proxy and no_proxy could be in lowercase as well, but http_proxy must be in lowercase. From curl man page:

The environment variables can be specified in lower case or upper case. The lower case version has precedence. http_proxy is an exception as it is only available in lower case.

So, can you please test with lowercase and report the results?

Comment 5 Martin Nagy 2016-07-20 09:17:34 UTC
I have opened a pull request that translates HTTP_PROXY to http_proxy, that should also help: https://github.com/sclorg/s2i-perl-container/pull/95

Also, just an fyi, I've realized that curl was actually doing ok, since it used https, which is fine in uppercase. But cpanm did not use the uppercase version, it was the one that failed.
