versioning and comment section for custom property files

From SI/SFG v6 onward, customer_overrides and custom properties files are moved to database from filesystem. We have to add the values using "customization" menu. However while adding the key & value in customer override: we don't have option to


1. add the comments to know in future that what was the purpose/reference of those key & value entered.

2. retain the old value (version control) so that in case of any issue we can revert back to older value.


3. take back up (or export) of the these properties and key values before making any changes or to move them to higher environment.

Can we provide the versioning of property files and comment section with each entry.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
