Allow agent logs to be accessible from UCD server UI according to name pattern defined in agents log4j

Currently the "request agent logs" feature from UCD server UI only supports the agent log files in format agent.out.<INDEX>. We are working with teams which updated the agent log4j to alter the log file name to a daily naming syntax, e.g. agent.out.2021-09-21. We would like to be able to retrieve all agent log files from the agent through UI following the pattern agent.out.* or according to the pattern defined in the agents

    • version added next to the allowed filename agent.out.<INDEX> also these two allowed file names for upload from the agent : upgrade.out, upgrade.log

    • version improves the response for the AgentLogFileService from previous response 500 to more appropriate response 400 for requests with an invalid file name

    However, agent.out.<DATE> is still not among allowed agent filenames in the latest UCD version 7.2.1, and it would be very good to have such filename added among allowed filenames for upload from the agent to the UCD server.
