View et Adapted into AdminCenter

It would be very interesting to see and be able to modify the file of the server liberty from AdminCenter.
Currently, the server.xml is displayed in AdminCenter with the variables in the file. It would be interesting to see it also with the values of the file.

    I give an example that will directly show the interest of being able to edit the file from the Admin Center.
    Here is an example of my server.xml.

    <!-- To access this server from a remote client add a host attribute to the following element, e.g. host="*" -->

    <httpEndpoint host="*" httpPort="-1" httpsPort="${httpsPort}" id="defaultHttpEndpoint" httpOptionsRef="httpOpts" sslOptionsRef="mySSLOptions"/>

    <!-- To access this server from a remote admin add a host attribute to the following element, e.g. host="*" -->

    <httpEndpoint host="*" httpPort="-1" httpsPort="${httpsPortAdmin}" id="AdminHttpEndpoint" httpOptionsRef="httpOpts" sslOptionsRef="mySSLOptions"/>

    In this part of the server.xml, we use variables from the but we ignore their values.

    It is not possible to see the values of these from the Admin Center, you must connect in TSO to see the values in the file.

    Do you see the interest of being able to edit this file via the Admin Center.

    Best Regards
