IBMi SST user id screen position issue

Issue with screen positioning on system service tool -user ids modification page

Use Case:

After making a changes in the privileges for one SST profile and hit F12 to come back on previous screen to continue making privilege changes in next profile. however, the screen is moving back to the first page rather than staying on the current position.
And again we have to do page down couple of times to modify the next subsequent profile and so on.

Is there any fix for this that screen should remain on the current page after making the changes in some profile, rather than moving back to the first page. I have attached screen shots as how it works currently.

In the current situation, we cannot modify a profile one after another, we need to scroll down many times to reach to our id and then need to modify it.

    IBM believes the new 7.4 commands for working with Service Tools User IDs addresses the core request to make updating multiple SST profile privileges easier. IBM does not intend to provide a screen position solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    The IBM i 7.4 release includes new commands for working with Service Tools User IDs. The new Change Service Tools User ID (CHGSSTUSR) allows for scripting the changes described in the RFE. The Display Service Tools User ID (DSPSSTUSR) command can output the list of user ids to an outfile for automated processing with CHGSSTUSR.

    There is no plan to change how the panel works however these new commands provide a better overall solution to the requirement. Do you agree the commands address the requirement.
