Add new function handlers to the product - They already exist a custom code

There are 6 function handlers that we already implemented at several projects as custom code

  • Child Gather
  • Contains Logical
  • Gather Values
  • Get Value by Position
  • Index Of
  • Intersection

The details of these function handlers can be found on:

https://w3-connections.ibm.com/wikis/home?lang=en-us#!/wiki/WebsphereCommerce/page/Custom%20Configurator%20Expansion%20Handlers

The code is already available and used in multiple implementations.  So, I am not asking for new development, all I am asking for to get these function handlers in the std code (On-Prem version and cloud version)

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

These function handlers will increase the capabilities of our configurator.  It will help creating rules that are not possible in the current release.  It is extremely helpful in creating generic rules.  Meaning when data comes in from an external source (without knowing the exact data that comes in).  

In my function as CSP I am using this in almost every demo (we added it a custom code to the BDA)

    As an SI, I have to add this to the extensions every time for last 7 years. It would be nice to have it in the product.
