Ability to use proxy

I'm not sure if this is even possible since, as per the Cypress docs (, it reads proxy settings from environment variables and Apify docs doesn't make very clear to me if adding a custom environment variable to the Actor would work as expected (see or adding proxy settings to the input schema would be the way ( Anyway, I think it's worth a try.

Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. Currently I don't have any plans to extend the functionality of this Actor.

The environment variables on Apify platform wouldn't work for this, as the environment variables are defined on Actor level and would be shared by all users of the Actor. Possible approach could be to add environment variables section to input (say as .env file contents), and put them to environment before cypress is started. Or maybe even have a special field on input for proxy env variable.

The repo is public and PRs are welcome!

Or You can use the cypress template to create an Actor that would fit your use-case.

I'd leave this issue open, as a feature request.
