Global NewCo Requirements - Add Proxy for NOI Hybrid Deployment

In NOI Hybrid deployment architecture, there is a need to have outbound connectivity from onPrem Netcool to the NOI on OCP cloud components.
We are working on a solution where NOI on OCP is hosted on IBM Cloud ROKS (OCP as a Service) and the onPrem Netcool is hosted in internal IBM Shared Resources network.
Following IBM NewCo security process, we can't have a direct connection from internal network to the Public Cloud. In order to accommodate such requirement, it is good practice to route the traffic to the internet via a Proxy.
The current NOI Hybrid solution does not support Proxy in all of its connections. Specially from onPrem Netcool/WebGUI to the NOI on Cloud (ROKS) components.
