Proxy request allows you to reroute a network request to a different endpoint. For example, routing requests to example.com to localhost:8000. The browser will still treat the response as coming from example.com, though the request is actually sent to localhost:8000 instead.
Rerouting production requests to localhost to test out changes on production domains
Test out third party scripts integration on production domain quickly and make sure that they are compliant with CSP and other domain restrictions.
Adding a proxy request
Click on the
at the top and select Proxy request.
Enter the URL that you would like to be proxied.
In the Proxy URL text box, enter the URL that you would like to send the actual requests to.
If you would like to use regex for URL matching, click on the Regex button and enter the regex URL expression in the text field.
You can use Regex to capture strings from the matched URL and substitute it into the proxy URL.
For example, if you enter https://example.com/(.*) the in matching URL textbox, and http://localhots:8000/$1. Then a request to https://example.com/path?query=parameter will be routed to http://localhost:8000/path?query=parameter
