      Description

      It would be great to store capture groups specified in the regex of the "Allowed paths" property of the HandleHTTPRequest processor.
      It could allow to easily create a REST API, as we could specify some parameters in the URL that would be automatically parsed.

      Ex :

      ^\/device\/([-\w\d]+)\/data$
      

      Would accept the URL

      http://localhost/device/01/data

      and automatically create the attribute

      http.request.params.1 = "01"
