Compressed files are not handled by rest client step
Use case is as follows :
A report is executed on a remote server URL which generates .zip files as content
So, in order to download .zip files, customer has used a "Rest Client" step to download .zip files, but it is not possible to download using .zip files.
However it works correctly for .csv and .Xml
Customer URLs are HTTPS Urls this is the reason why customer is using Rest Client step to download files
Steps to reproduce .
Enable SSL on the BI-server
Copy any compressed file into "biserver-ee-ssl\tomcat\webapps\pentaho".
Try accessing the compressed file via browser http://localhost:8443/pentaho/pentaho.tag.gz
Try accessing the compressed file via rest client we can not save the file.
