BRMS report for omit objs

this request is for BRMS product on AS400 (IBM i). If it's possible to add the objects that being omitted from control group, especially IFS objs in the BRMS recovery report, or in any other Backup Analysis screen.

Use Case:

PMR 67780,004,000
we had an issue lately due to someone without notice included /QIBM/PRODDATA in the omit list, which caused our weekly backup not saving these critical IFS objs, and a failed DR test.
If in BRMS report these omitted objs would show in anyway, we could fix this without putting business in resk.

Idea priority High

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a high priority requirement that is important to be addressed. This fills a gap in identifying omitted objects that may cause a full system restore to fail.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community, and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
