Configure AlertSite Proxy for iOS Devices

To record mobile traffic from your iPhone or iPad, you must configure HTTP proxy settings on your device to use the AlertSite proxy. The proxy will capture all web traffic from your device and generate a script, which you can later upload as a monitor in AlertSite.


Your iPhone or iPad must be connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Find AlertSite Proxy Information

You can find proxy information in AlertSite when you prepare to record:

Note: The proxy port is dynamic and changes between recording sessions. You will need to update the proxy port on your device with the one shown here each time, before recording.

Set the Device’s Proxy

All web traffic from your iPhone or iPad will now be sent through the AlertSite proxy, and AlertSite will be able to record it.

Remember to disable the HTTP Proxy in the device settings after you finish recording.
