Hi there, 

I'm hoping this is something dumb I'm doing wrong.  I have your SetProxy Action inside an OnBeforeRequest Action on a REST consuming service.

I've set the ProxyUrl to something like


when I fire a request, I get this error when I try running SetProxy with the url

An error was raised by the application: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I haven't set any username or password as I don't need it.

Hi Steve,

Use OnBeforeRequestAdvanced  event instead of OnBeforeRequest  event.

OnBeforeRequest event is used to customize request like changing the URL, Headers etc at runtime

OnBeforeRequestAdvanced   is used to add some customize .net code to request and you are adding a extension a .net extension RESTProxy to add the Proxy in HttpRequest

By seeing the code it seems like the below code is returning null object in OnBeforeRequest as the request is not yet initialized.

Best Regards
