DynamicForms: API-functions should also handle visibility of CQ-groups

In ClearQuest it is possible to make tabs or records hidden/visible for a special ClearQuest-group. This group will be administrated in the CQ-UserManagemnt. With the CQ-feature "DynamicForms" it is now possible to make tabs dynamically hidden and visible.

If now a user is not in the ClearQuest-group "RQ1_data_admin", then the tab "Admin" is not visible for that user in web. But this is because ClearQuest-group mechanism and not of the new feature "DynamicForms". Asking now for all visible tabs or fields, then the function will return also the hidden "ClearQuest-group-Tabs" and also the fields on that tabs.

$form = $entity->GetFormName();
$tabs = $entity->GetVisibleTabNames($form);
$fields = $entity->GetVisibleFieldNames($form);

print "Tabs: @$tabs\n";
print "Fields: @$fields\n";

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
