jira-rest-java-client (JRC) 3.0 How to set custom http proxy

While JIRA is behind a proxy , we need to set a proxy settings before we make a connection to httpClient , ex. if i use HttpConnection , i can set a Proxy host and port , so that http can use the proxy while making call to JIRA url.


The similar thing we like to do with JiraRestClient but it doesn’t provide a way to set a Proxy in anyways.



The sample code work successfully with org.apache library is follows   —  We like to set the proxy similar way to JiraRestClient API.


HttpHost proxy = new HttpHost(proxyHost, Integer.parseInt(proxyPort));

HttpClientBuilder clientBuilder = HttpClientBuilder.create();


HttpComponentsClientHttpRequestFactory factory1 = new HttpComponentsClientHttpRequestFactory();
