When using apache to access a proxy service from OSB, get a http 500 error "Cannot process inbound request to endpoint ProxyService [proxy service name] over https".
The apache webserver (edge) running the weblogic plugin, terminates the SSL connection and then connects to Weblogic/SOA over HTTP. The service is configure to run over HTTP and not HTTPS.
Internal use of the proxy service works as expected.

HTTPS --> [Apache WL Plugin]-- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB]  = http 500 error
HTTP --> [Apache WL Plugin] -- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB] = OK
HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA/OSB] = OK

If check "Require HTTPS" on the OSB service transport , it is processed fine
HTTPS --> [Apache WL Plugin] -- HTTP --> [Weblogic SOA / OSB] = OK
