And it is not expected to. There is no support for http forward proxies in nginx, and there are no plans to add it.

Does that mean, that even if environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy, are set for Nginx then it won't change anything? Can you please confirm

comment:3 by arun.avanathan@…, 3 years ago

We are using Nginx as reverse proxy. Not as forward proxy. Note that entertaining https_proxy is following the Operating System standards.
