Per for Java Deployment Guide (see: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/deployment/deployment-guide/properties.html)
The deployment.config file is used for specifying the System-Level deployment.properties in the infrastructure. By default no deployment.config file exists; thus, no system-wide deployment.properties file exists. If deployment.config exists, it is located either here:
The setting you want to ensure is configured in this file is:
Again, per the documentation:
This is for the type of proxy that should be use. The choices are:
PROX_TYPE_UNKNOWN = -1;
PROX_TYPE_NONE = 0;
PROX_TYPE_MANUAL = 1;
PROX_TYPE_AUTO = 2; and
PROX_TYPE_BROWSER = 3;
I would first test adding this setting to the file on a machine and see if it does what the documentation indicates it will… that is bypass any proxy and go direct.
If this works, modify your action to append this value to the file and you should be good.
