Add option in Spectrum Protect OC to send reports in PDF format

One of my customers requested to have the option to send Spectrum Protect reports in PDF format via email. This is the same functionality that they have today, since they are using Tivoli Monitoring for Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Common Reporting and they have developed some reports and send them daily to various emails within the customer IT.

    This request may not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme is aligned with the current multi-year strategy. IBM may consider and evaluate any RFE Community feedback for this request through activities such as voting. IBM will update this request in the future.

    This is mandatory ! It is anormal that this option is not already available. For most customers, mail cannot be used because SP does not allow to put an ID / password, which is against any security rule ... so, no report at all...
