Hide EULA agreement in .properties file

It would be great if the EULA agreement could be disabled from being seen by use of a parameter in the .properties file.

The current "silent" EULA solution for ACS involves running a .js script in "Admin Config" mode. My current deployment however does not utilize these scripts for updating end-users. Because of this, there is no sure way to keep these EULA messages disabled. Implementing a "disable EULA" parameter in the .properties file seems to me like a blanket solution for disabling EULA, and a much more comprehensive solution that what is currently available.

Use Case:

The need for this arives because ACS runs on Java. Whenever Java is updated, the EULA will show up again for an end user when trying to load their 5250 session within ACS. If there were a "Disable EULA" parameter in the .properties file, the EULA could be permanently disabled, so that it doesn't appear after every single Java update.

    The EULA needs to be accepted once either by the user or the admin. Updating Java should not require the EULA to be accepted again. If you would like assistance solving that particular issue, open a ticket and work with our Service team.
