Unable to access /configs/conf-server endpoint when validating modular input configuration


I would like to pull the proxy configuration from server.conf when validating my modular input so I can validate the input's connectivity through a proxy. I am using the Java SDK to access server.conf during validation but unfortunately, it seems like when a modular input is being validated, the /configs/conf-server endpoint becomes inaccessible and any network request to that endpoint will hang. As soon as the validation times out, I am able to access that endpoint again.

Why does this happen? Is there another way to access server.conf during validation? Thanks in advance!
