Export Configuration Documents and Comma Sep Values

Please can you add functionality to export Configuration Documents and their content into a report. There is critical configuration data in these CI's that we cannot expose in reporting.

Can you also support comma separated values, such as file system mount options into reports. Important configuration data cannot be exported into reports because you strip the comma rather than enclosing it in " " or another method. The string needs to be preserved by stripping the comma's you make it unreadable.

It would indeed be very useful to be able to output columns of type "bytes" in reports. However, the content of such attribut may be quite large, may contain CR/LF and even binary characters.

Before that, I think that there should be a way to parse the content of those attributes, for example, with regular expressions. Even if the "bytes" attributes are not exposed when creating a View/Report, it would, at least, be possible to extract the desired part into a string attribut using an enrichment rule.

The idea of supporting regular expressions has already been submitted 14 months ago: https://community.microfocus.com/t5/CMS-Idea-Exchange/Regular-expressions-in-TQL-attribute-conditions-and-view-reports/idi-p/2688264
