I'm new to Nginx and we are using for reverse proxy.

I'm able to configured Nginx and it's working but I've challenge in
configuring it for Dynamic proxy_pass. I've tried to use wild characters
in proxy_pass it's not working, please help.

server {
    #listen 443;
    listen 8080;
    server_name IP;

/api/ingestion/ {
        proxy_set_header HOST $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_buffers 8 512k;
        proxy_buffer_size 2024k;
        proxy_busy_buffers_size 2024k;
        proxy_read_timeout 3000;
        add_header Cache-Control no-cache;
        #rewrite ^/api/query/(.*)$ /$1;
        proxy_pass http://IP:8881/ingestion/v1.0/streams/NGINEX; (IP:
hostname of the server where the service

In my case, in the above link last word NGINEX can be any other name, so
how I can dynamically configure for that word.
I tried using wild characters like *, . & _ are not working. Please

Thank you
