Slack Alerts via Web Proxy

Is there a way to configure the Slack Alerts App to use a web proxy? The search head is in a data center where internet access is restricted unless it goes through a web proxy. The only settings I have found in Splunk are for sending all Splunkd communications through a proxy which is not ideal. The search head is running on windows server 2012R2 so I did attempt to set the windows proxy but it does not seem like Splunk picks up on that for 80/443 connections. Anyone know how to get this working?

Thanks

This is not possible with the current version of the app. Since this is a repeated ask, it is on the TODO list, though.

I fixed the issue for my slack alerts by adding the lines below in slack.py (splunk\etc\apps\slack_alerts\bin\slack.py)
import os

proxy = 'http://:@:'

os.environ['http_proxy'] = proxy
os.environ['HTTP_PROXY'] = proxy
os.environ['https_proxy'] = proxy
os.environ['HTTPS_PROXY'] = proxy

I would also be very interested in if there is a possibility to use the Slack app via a web proxy.

would be awesome to have the opportunity to configure a separate web proxy!
