+1 Our product retrieves threat intelligence data from an external api into Splunk.
We give users the option of using a proxy when getting that data. This functionality worked flawlessly in up until 8.2.10

Customers have been getting "check_hostname requires server_hostname" since upgrading to 9+ when using a proxy.

OP have you solved this issue?
