It has been seen where some clients have run security audits and require all HTTP URLs to be redirected to HTTPS. This is something that requires Tech-Ops to make changes to the application via the backend config files.
Due to the time consuming approval process for this change, it has been requested that this functionality be a part of the front end application.
Currently this requires a request to Adobe Tech-Ops which may also require a review from a security engineer before the request can be completed.
Additionally an enhancement in NEO-19457 has been put forth for consideration in a later release.
