Multiple upstream web proxies
Define multiple upstream HTTP proxies.
Define URL-based policies to determine which proxy should be used, or whether traffic should go direct.
Each proxy may require authentication.
Hallo, is there any success?
This idea was posted in NOV 2015 and is still unanswered by SOPHOS? Please give us an update about this!!! The functionality was available already in Sophos UTM. Why the feature is not available in Sophos XG?
Paul Geissler commented
It is very usefull, If this ist implemented, the we are interested in bying this solution.
Hallo Sophos boys, it is very important for us! We have tested the UTM9 with this feature (coming from forefront). Now we have bougt the XG firewall, but there is this feature not included. It is very usefull for. Please implement this as fast as you can. Thank you very much.
Is there any progress??

This is an important Feature for multiple customers. Please consider adding this Feature since it is present in UTM9 already.
Please consider this a +1 for multiple upstream proxies.
Related, we also encountered an issue with character limits in the upstream proxy field (currently capped at 40 characters), which impacts use of upstream proxies with long names such as webdefence-pool-01.cluster-nyca.forcepoint.net
Support case for reference (not being fixed by sophos)
[#8693303] Parent Proxy field truncates at 40 Characters, need to use 54
this is very important for us too. When will this feature released ?
this would be great.
Also please allow to create exception so it will be possible to retrieve content directly from destination and not through parent proxy.
We have multiple customers that want to migrate TMG to Sophos XG. This is not possible at this moment as they use Web Chaining on TMG and there is no way to do it in XG.
