I would like it if there was an easy way to do REST/HTTP deploys. My plan for now is to use Powershell to do it, but I would rather avoid that if possible.

    What kind of deploy is that? Could you give an example please?

    My specific example is uploading artifacts to Bintray. They have a REST API that allows me to publish my artifacts. I'm guessing a REST deploy would have to be pretty generic, basically just a way to supply headers, URI (with environment variable substitution) and method.

    I think the most important bit is making sure I can easily do Basic Authentication since it is pretty common. Bearer token authentication would also be nice. This can be achieved manually by allowing me to supply headers sourced from secure variables, that way I don't have to commit my API Key / Auth Token to version control.

    OK, I see, thanks. It's BinTray deployment provider we have an issue for:

    That would likely solve my immediate problem. My thought with a REST/HTTP deployment provider was that it would potentially fill a lot of small holes (like this one) rather than building a specific provider just for BinTray. That being said, perhaps deployment via HTTP is too uncommon to be worth having a low-level provider?

    OK, that might have sense. Could you please submit a new issue here:
