Job Status >>> Job Item Summary enhancement for failed codelist due to duplicate entries

We have request from customers like VF Services to update new codelist entries (more then 100 +) for an already existing codelist .

For such request Support/PER/Implementer would normally take the back up of the existing codelist (XML) and merge the new entries into the already existing codelist (XML)and try to deploy consolidated codeist (XML) in config center.

During this process it was observed if there are any duplicates in the consolidated codelist (XML) the import fails and Job >> Job Item Summary shows only one entry as duplicate, But it would not reflect all the duplicate entries present in the consolidated codelist (XML) and to remove these duplicates becomes tedious process.

For any codelist import failure due to duplicates If Job Item Summary can reflect list of all duplicate entries in the consolidated codleist (XML) then it would be easy to remove these entries and upload to config center.

This Job Item Summary enhancement would avoid frequent failures on config center and their by reducing load on the server. It would help Support/PER/Implementer to save time and address customer request at the earliest.

Note: In Sterling Integrator we have this feature, During import if there are any duplicates it would reflect all the duplicates present in the codelist xml.
