Adding your proxy prefix to your database URLs is a snap! First, you'll need someone with an administrator-level account to add the prefix to your system settings:

Once your proxy prefix is in your system settings, all users will be able to easily add the prefix to database links - they just need to look for the checkbox:
One benefit to adding your proxy prefix to your system settings is that it streamlines the linking process - neither you nor your users have to add the proxy prefix manually to every database link!
It also makes your life easier if your proxy prefix ever changes - heaven forbid! If it does, just change the proxy prefix in your system settings - it will automatically update every link that has that checkbox checked!
