is there a way to set an "X-Forwarded-Host" on Azure App Proxy?

When I set up my application through the app proxy url, it keeps trying to send back the internal machine name rather than the app proxy url. If not then does Azure Application Gateway have this?

I reached out to twitter support and they said no. The thing is, Esri software requires this -

So they referenced an article,, that says to try using a Reply URL however when I asked for documentation on how to use this to achieve what the X-Forwarded-Host, they said they don't have any docs on how to achieve this solution.

My question is, will it be required to set a "reply URL" or a "Redirect URI" within Azure App Proxy to achieve what the X-Forwarded-Host Header is supposed to do? If so do you have a guide on how to do this?

Thank you,

    Unfortunately, X-Forwarded-Host does not supported by Azure AD Application Proxy.
