I need support for outbound data streams to be gzip compressed. Ideally, this would be done by a new tool that can be inserted into a workflow (maybe similar to the Base 64 Encoding tool). Just including it in the Output Tool will not address my needs as I will be sending gzip payloads to a cloud API. There are two main reasons why this is necessary (and without it, quite possibly a roadblock for our enterprise's use of Alteryx):
Some APIs enforce gzip encoding, therefore Alteryx cannot currently be used to interact with such APIs
When transmitting large volumes of data across the Internet, gzip compression will significantly decrease transmission times
