Allow multiple users to modify probe configuration concurrently - append without overwrite

When multiple users concurrently modify probe configuration (e.g to add IP ranges for discovery), they overwrite each other's changes. Requesting the ability for users to make concurrent updates which append without conflict. 

Available workarounds such as periodically importing a merged excel file pose security and usability challenges.

We have been working to redesign the discovery UI, and place it in the CMS UI.  You'll start seeing portions of this later this year hopefully.  As part of this redesign effort, we have changed how updates are made to the Probe Setup components, in that changes are written to the system by individual pieces, rather than updating everything when a single component is being updated..

This means, if one person uses the CMS UI to change a credential, another person can also be changing a different credential at the same time. Both changes will be written to the system individually rather than the single update causing ALL credential to be re-written to the system.

With the release of the new Probe Setup feature in the CMS UI as part of CMS 2019.11, multiple users can concurrently edit probe configuration.  The Admin UI would make updates to the probe configuration en mass (that is, a change in one area caused an update to the full table, overwriting any content someone else was working on).  The new probe setup functionality treats each individual edit as separate and distinct, so the edits can occur simultaneously on different components of probe setup.

Details of how to work with the new probe setup are available at https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Universal_CMDB:2019.11/ProbeSetupModule
