Request to allow -k flag on curl.exe (upgrade to 7.55 or higher) and download tool

Please upgrade the "curl.exe" that are packaged with Designer from 7.15 to 7.55 or greater to allow for -k flags. Also please allow the -k functionality for the Atleryx Download tool.  


-k, --insecure

(TLS) By default, every SSL connection curl makes is verified to be secure. This option allows curl to proceed and operate even for server connections otherwise considered insecure.

The server connection is verified by making sure the server's certificate contains the right name and verifies successfully using the cert store.

We could really use this feature and it has been a part of the Open Source curl application for quite a while.  Not much effort, lots of reward.

Gotta have this for development. While using -k isn't ideal in a production environment, it is 100% demanded in a DEV environment!

@ColganNice idea :) Curl is currently in 7.87 with really nice changes

Sadly, it appears that Alteryx has some trouble to update third-party components, same with the Visual Query Builder.

Best regards,

Curl is now on 8.0...
