Proxy urls from ionic.config.json not working in android emulator

Hello I am trying to access an end point on my api using @ionic-native/http .
it works when I use “ionic serve” , but when I do, " ionic cordova emulate android" , the proxy urls dont seem to work. So I do something like this, this.apiUrl =‘ios’) ||‘android’)? ‘’ : ‘/applogin/’; . But I don’t feel that this is the correct way. Can I access the ionic.config.json some other way ? is there a way for proxy urls to work in my android?

my ionic info is:
@ionic/cli-utils : 1.19.2
