User interface improvements when configuring FIM

Selecting the right files when configuring auditd or RTC can be a bit challenging and time-consuming at the moment - and we think some minor interface tweaks could make this process easier.

1) 'Freeze' the headings on the table when scrolling - to ensure you can always see which checkbox relates to which purpose.
2) Add some delineation between the rows to make it easier to see which checkboxes relate to which filename - either with lines between each entry, or alternating the background colour of each row in the table.
3) Provide a way to select all files within a folder for either contents or attributes. For instance, this would make it easier to identify changes to any configuration file in /etc/sysconfig rather than having to select each file individually.
4) If possible, extend the search functionality to filenames - rather than having to type out the full directory path.

These few changes would make it easier for all users to configure the auditd or RTC services to select the files and directories that are most relevant to them for integrity monitoring, it also reduces the chances of mistakes being made that might flag up as problems, or might cause some changes to be missed.
