Exposing a HTTP node without SSL in secured NR

#1

Dear Node-RED friends,
Is it possible to expose an HTTP node in a secured Node-RED environment? Basically, I want to have all of NR's APIs and UI SSL-secured, but I need to make one particular endpoint available for a device that's incapable of connecting to https:// URLs.
Any hint is highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Node-RED uses ExpressJS to provide its endpoints. The default endpoints are either https or http, I don't believe it is possible to mix. As far as I am aware, to do what you want would require a custom node writing that creates a new ExpressJS endpoint - that would need to use a different port number.
