Is there any way to get TA-webtools curl to use a proxy?

I have seen a couple of answers about use of proxies by "curl" where it is stated that it is not possible to specify a specific proxy for each request, but it was not clear to me whether it is possible to use a proxy configured at the system level.

I see in the code that you write "### Doesnt use the HTTP_PROXY or HTTPS_PROXY defined in splunk-launch.conf". But is there a way to get the "requests" call to pick up another proxy config, e.g. in Splunk's server.conf/proxyConfig or in Linux's /etc/environment?

In short is there any way to get TA-webtools curl to use a proxy?

Thanks

Yes it will use a proxy if you configure the proxy at a system level and make sure the splunk "run as" user is forced to use the proxy.

you could also relay the curls through a proxy directly... using tools like nginx or haproxy and setting up endpoints that relay your request.
