Publish Node extensions

This should be eleminated by providing node properties for at least:

This could be accompanied with local environment overrides.

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. Whilst there has only been a rather modest return of 2 votes since this requirement was initially raised in 2012, we absolutely agree that the usability of the publication node could be significantly improved with this suggestion as it would avoid flow developers having to become so familiar with the RFH2 structure. Although we have not yet managed to bring business prioritization to this suggestion, we would like to keep it open and continue to monitor its popularity for a future ACE release. Status is maintained as Future Consideration.

    Good requirement, thanks for raising. Pub/sub is a common pattern for MB which we'd like to make as simple as possible. We'll schedule the ability to specify pub/sub properties on the Publication node for a follow-on release or fixpack.
