Add support for authenticated proxies
The OneDrive desktop client currently doesn't work on networks with authenticated proxies. This makes OneDrive useless in these kinds of environments.
Thanks for the suggestion & feedback.

MS thinks about this for past 7 Years!!!! What a shame & how they cares the User Voice?
I can't believe that this isn't done by now. You've already got the wrapper around your networking that can redirect to a proxy, all you need to do is add a dialogue box asking for a username and password and send that out with your next connection. It's probably easier to implement this for everyone compared to convincing even one company to change their proxy as a work-around. With the number of people asking for this, compared to the effort to ask the user for name & password, what's the holdup?
WOW...!!! this post is from dec/2014... the answer a year later... and today, 6 year later I have the same problem without solution !!!!!! Incredible!!!!!
2020 and still waiting.. desisted
2020 and no proxy support yet
As it looks like it will never happen, I'm going back to Dropbox

Please, MS. I also need OneDrive authenticates my user behind authenticated proxies of a corporate network.

As incredible as it might sound, OneDrive is STILL crashing behind authenticated proxies as soon as the grace period expires. And it's 2019... call that laughable "business support"
Please make this suggestion should be a top priority. We are missing this functionality.

What are you all worried about? Just open up your corporate network to the cloud and no baddies will get it.
This is 2018 and I am still looking for OneDrive with proxies.
Hi Jason Moore, how long will you think about this? It is not possible to use One Drive in a standard corporate environment with authenticated proxies. Really? This is a no go for more than 50% of all big companies, i know.
microsoft in not a good choice....

Quite a long time for thinking about it ;-)
I would say, non Active Directory integrating proxies (Squid et al.) are are not widely spread in USA, so there is no need for Microsoft to support them.
Btw: same problem with One Drive and One Drive for Business.
also looking for authenticated proxy settings
Still waiting on this

Is there any progress on this?
If not, I support YSL suggestion below, can you at least create a KB to know what should be whitelisted to bypass proxy?
Charles M. commented
@Jason this is something you should really give top priority on OneDrive roadmap...
Hi, can you give me a list of domains to whitelist so that the necessary components of
onedrive can work without going through the proxy?
This issue really needs to be fixed, I've got 1TB of OneDrive storage that I can't utilise because OneDrive is stuck in the past and can't work with proxies. I can't believe that it's been over a year since Jason started "Thinking about it" and nothing has been done. I guess I'll just go back to external HDD's.
On top of Steve's comment below (I did the work to fix it), we actually created an explicit app rule for OneDrive. This fixed the personal issue (and actually would've fixed the business issue as well, except we already have explicit white-list overrides for a whole bunch of MS sites).
Suggestion - add an explicit rule within the app control tab for OneDrive, enable it, assigned to whatever groups of people you want. Done.
