Expose endpoint url as configurable parameter in Host Factory

Good morning, Out bank server are in a private and secured network, and dont have visibility to AWS directly. So for when we use AWS Client, when connecting we need to specify an --endpoint-url option to not use default, given that when we use that address, we get an connection timeout. aws ec2 describe-instances --profile default --endpoint-url Connect timeout on endpoint URL: "" To circumvent these issues, BBVA and AWS set up endpoints to attack AWS services through IP's which the servers have access to (found in VPC-> Endpoints -> Services). With these, we can access AWS via Client without issue setting --endpoint-url option: aws ec2 describe-instances --profile default --endpoint-url <-- OK Our need is to be able to override default Endpoint is EC2 services: Choosing a Specific Endpoint Each AWS client can be configured to use a specific endpoint within a region by calling the withEndpointConfiguration method when creating the client. For example, to configure the Amazon S3 client to use the Europe (Ireland) Region, use the following code. AmazonS3 s3 = AmazonS3ClientBuilder.standard() .withEndpointConfiguration(new EndpointConfiguration( "", "eu-west-1")) .withCredentials(CREDENTIALS_PROVIDER) .build(); We cant make use of HostFactory given this issue, and supose same happens to similar clients, so appying RFE is good for both parts.

    Check case TS010369577 for more details.

    AWS_PROXY_HOST and AWS_PROXY_PORT works for a proxy server but not for AWS endpoint url.
