Red Hat 3scale APIcast returns a timeout error on HTTP POST requests when using a forward proxy

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are using 3scale gateway with a forward proxy. HTTP POST requests timeout when using HTTPS on the API backend. Switching to HTTP resolves the issue, but we need to use the secure API. How can we fix this?
  • When I try to call a Backend API using proxy I get a 408/HTTP error.
