Are you configuring proxy as automatic proxy ? or Manual ?

Which Proxy you are using ? PAC file or normal proxy server with port number,

Please refer below some of the standard settings for GPO configuration to set Proxy,

The proxy is an automatic proxy deployed by PAC.

You need to modify below Group policy to configure,

User configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > Connection > Automatic Browser Configuration  

Select Enable Automatic Configuration.

Under Auto-proxy URL (.JS, .JVS, or .PAC file), enter the path to the PAC file.


Client side, Run gpupdate /force to reflect

In Server 2012 we have Group Policy Preferences, You need to install Internet Explorer Administration Kit 10 (IEAK 10).

Please go through below Technet article for more information.

Have you tried updating gpupdate /force

Run rsop.msc from client side and check, policies are applied properly or not.

Also share screenshot of proxy settings (IE). and GPP policy screenshot
