Foreman OpenSCAP reports are not displayed on the GUI (ERF12-1831 [ProxyAPI::ProxyException]: Unable to get HTML version of requested report from Smart Proxy)

When i try to display the details from a openscap raport on the Foreman GUI, i get this error:

As I understand it, the full HTML and an XML raport is stored in the reports directory on the smart proxy (not the same server as the foreman server).
but in the reports directory is only see the file:

[root@srvproxy01 1675927797]# ls -ltr

That would explain, why the foreman GUI cant show the report. But i dont know how i can solve this Problem.

Expected outcome:
ARF report Details in the GUI.

Foreman and Proxy versions:
foreman.noarch 3.5.1-1.el8
ansible [core 2.14.0]

External Smart Proxy:
foreman-proxy.noarch 3.5.1-1.el8
ansible [core 2.13.3]

Other relevant data:
Openscap config on Smart Proxy:

When i execute the openscap scan on the client i get following log entries:

Hi, can you check you have the data stored at /usr/share/foreman-proxy/openscap/reports on your smart proxy? I also see your proxy is contacted on port 8000 (using http) but many modules by default listen on https only. Check whether your openscap is exposed over http by grep enabled /etc/foreman-proxy/settings.d/openscap.yml. If not it would explain the 404 response. Your proxy should probably use https instead and port 8443 or 9090 (based on whether it also hosts content)

Ohh yes, now i see my mistake,on the proxy i used https.

:enabled: https

But i have configuerd my foreman to connect the proxy on http. I changed it now to https and i worked. many thanks!
