Is there a way to get this addon to connect to https://reports.office365.com through a http proxy?

I am setting this addon up on a heavy forwarder (6.5), running on a debian linux. I am required to access the "internet" through a http proxy, without authentication and without inspection.
I cant find anywhere to configure the settings for the proxy server.

And since this is a O365 URL, the number of IP addresses returned when querying it is far to many to be manageable in a "through firewall" opening directly without a proxy server.

Did anyone get this to work through a http proxy, where the Splunk installation is not on a windows box?
(I noticed in the script "socks.py" that it imports the global proxy settings if the OS in "NT something")

Proxy support will be available in the next release. In the meantime, you can edit input_module_ms_o365_message_trace.py. Around line 57, you will see the following:

helper.log_debug("Endpoint URL: %s" % microsoft_trace_url)
r = requests.get(microsoft_trace_url, auth=requests.auth.HTTPBasicAuth(global_microsoft_office_365_username, global_microsoft_office_365_password))

The add-on uses the Python requests library which supports proxy servers. Make the following modifications:

helper.log_debug("Endpoint URL: %s" % microsoft_trace_url)
proxies = {
    'http': 'http://proxy_server_address:proxy_server_port',
    'https': 'http://proxy_server_address:proxy_server_port',
}
r = requests.get(microsoft_trace_url, proxies=proxies, auth=requests.auth.HTTPBasicAuth(global_microsoft_office_365_username, global_microsoft_office_365_password ))

Hi Jconger,
i have added following

'http': 'http://1.2.3.4:8080',
'https': 'http://1.2.3.4:8080',
}
But getting following error after restarting the splunk service.
