Redirect http to https in reverse proxy?

I have set up a reverse proxy in front of my appserver and I fail to do the redirect that i want.
For testing purposes i have both the appserver and proxy on the same machine, appserver on 8080 and proxy on 8090.

NameTrans fn="map" from="/" to="http://host:8080" rewrite-host="true"

This works fine.

Now I want to make sure that a specific sub directory is only accessible via https from client to proxy.
Basically something like this (which doesn't do anything):

NameTrans fn="redirect" from="http://host:8090/secret" url-prefix="https://host:8090/secret"

Since I use the proxy as a stand-in for a server it seems I can only match on the path and not scheme, host, port.

The following at least gives me a redirect, but unfortunately an infinite one :)

NameTrans fn="redirect" from="/secret" url-prefix="https://host:8090/secret"

Is there any way for me to do this http->https redirect that I need?
