Thanks so much for your votes and comments on this issue. We don't have plans to address this feature in the next 12 months, but this on our roadmap and we plan to address it in the future.
In the meantime, there is one workaround provided by another customer which on premise customers can use.
While we will not be addressing this feature in the next 12 months, we plan to resolve several other top voted feature requests in the next 12 months, including JRA-3156, JRA-3821, JRA-1431. And we have recently resolved
JRA-32199, JRA-32200, JRA-2703 and JRA-7659 as well as provided the first drop of functionality related to JRA-3157.
Thanks for your patience and we hope you appreciate our open approach to feature requests.
