Issue/Introduction

If the ODataQueryBuilder site keeps redirecting to HTTPS, even when you type HTTP, you likely had HSTS enabled. HSTS is a browser setting. Basically it forces a known page to use the HTTPS if it has seen that URL work with HTTPS before. If you remove the (s) and try HTTP, it will keep changing. 

Cause

This is because the main NFA website may be setup to use HTTPS but the ODataQueryBuilder does not yet support it.

Environment

NFA 10.0.x
