How to remove actual client IP address from the request sent to Target end-point



In my scenario, I do not want to forward the client IP address to my target end-point system. Because every client IP address should be whitelisted in the target system which makes the maintenance not practical. So I want to whitelist only SAP Cloud Platform IP address on the target system so that every request it gets from API Management is a legit one.

How can I remove the client IP address from the header X-Forwarded-For ?
