    This is a very important feature which is missing from UFL connector. Just because of this limitation we had to create a separate VM in inner DMZ, to circumvent our security regime. This must be included in upcoming release.

    With its ability to act as a REST client the UFL connector is natural choice to bring data from cloud based solutions (for example IBM Bluemix) into PI as it is very simple to configure, use, and support. However, It's quite common for businesses to require their servers to communicate with the internet via a proxy, preventing this method of data ingress into PI.
