    We have not been able to move this enhancement through our backlog into a deliver yet. It does remain a backlog item that we intend to deliver in the future however.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I've reviewed this with my team and we are in agreement that this request is reasonable and more detailed CTRC records would be beneficial to our broader customer base. I will accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to our roadmap moving forward.
