You'll have to be specific with the channel driver in use. Speaking from 
chan_pjsip it does not have a mechanism to set the outbound proxy on a 
per-call basis, it's strictly controlled by the endpoint. You'd need 
multiple or construct endpoints dynamically (for example using the ARI 
push configuration). As for not rewriting the request URI you need to 
use loose routing by specifying ;lr in the outbound proxy URI.



If used in a configuration file:
