How do I use Inmanta with a http/https proxy?

Use the http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables to specify the proxy server to use. For the server installed from our RPMs, add the environment variable to the systemd unit file. Copy inmanta-server.service from /lib/systemd/systemd/system to /etc/systemd/system and add the following lines to the [Service] section with the correct proxy server details:


Afterwards run systemctl daemon-reload and restart the inmanta server.

I get a click related error/exception when I run inmanta-cli.

The following error is shown:

Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/inmanta-cli", line 11, in <module>
    File "/opt/inmanta/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/inmanta/", line 871, in main

RuntimeError: Click will abort further execution because Python 3 was configured to use ASCII as encoding for the environment.  Consult mitigation steps.

This error occurs when the locale are not set correctly. Make sure that LANG and LC_ALL are set. For example:

export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8
export LANG=en_US.utf8
The model does not compile and exits with “could not complete model”.

There is an upperbound on the number of iterations used in the model transformation algorithm. For large models this might not be enough. This limit is controlled with the environment variable INMANTA_MAX_ITERATIONS The default value is set to 10000 iterations.
