Display of Protocol Profile ID in Inflight for the Inbound Flows

Currently Inflight displays the Protocol Profile ID for the Outbound flows in the Protocol Started Event of the file processing. When we receive the inbound files from any of the Communication Protocol, Inflight displays only the Protocol Name, POD and Process ID. If we want to know the Protocol Information for an inbound file, we need to go to the POD and need to search with the Process ID to find out the Protocol Profile ID. If we are getting the display of Protocol Profile ID information directly in the Received Event of file processing, it will save time in finding out the protocol information quickly

This idea will save time in searching the Protocol Profile id information from the other system
