    Looks like you guys are using npm as the underlying foundation for the Unity Package Manager.

    Can you have upm expose the ability to disable strict-ssl or allow custom certificate authorities certificates?

    Thank you

    Hi @LM-CML,

    We used to have *npm* as the underlying foundation. We are not anymore (started from Unity 2018.3). I was not aware *npm* had these configurations. I assume they are useful in a corporate environment? Can you details the use case where those options would be helpful please? I want to understand the value so I can better prioritize the development of these options.

    Thank you!

    Yeah, I saw you guys have a blurb about self-signed certificates in the network configuration section. My use case is pretty much the same thing but in a corporate environment.

    All of our http/https is routed through a proxy and the proxy manipulates the SSL certificates presented by the responding servers.

    Our normal practice (for things like git, docker, npm) is to insert our trusted corporate certificate authority, this would be ideal for upm as well.

    Especially since Unity is going heavily into the package/module direction. We can't take advantage of things like Cinemachine or anything not in the built-ins

    We've also been unable to communicate with the Unity license servers for a few years now, but that's a whole other (but similar) issue.

    Thank you for the quick response

    This is really helpful information. And it will help get the implementation of this feature promoted to the top of our backlog :)

    I'll post here if/when we have something new about this feature.

    Thank you!

    We plan to implement the configuration of custom certificate authorities. The feature was added to our backlog and prioritize for the short term.

    Regards,
