QA should discover and manage the IP SLA threshold value configured on switch

We have some Cisco switches containing IP SLA configuration looking like this:

ip sla 1
 icmp-echo 10.20.30.40 source-ip 10.10.10.10
 threshold 3
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now

QA does not discover and display the threshold value. QA does create an incident if this threshold value is exceeded though, so QA does somehow know the status of the probe. It would be nice if QA could display and even manage this value.

OID for the threshold value: 
1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.42.1.2.1.1.5 (rttMonCtrlAdminThreshold) from CISCO-RTTMON-MIB

I know QA also has the ability to create its own threshold values. But QA has to relate to the threshold value on the switch. I leave it to Micro Focus to solve the details on that problem.

 

When I look on the probe in QA, the Analysis (Threshold State) says "Threshold is not configured". Maybe something could be done about that potentially misleading formulation too.
