ACE Dashboard - dashboard command startup

he dashboard script keeps a session open, it works like a standalone integration server. That is not really handy on a node managed system. Since you can start it in the backgroundm but you then have to kill the process in order to stop or restart it.
Rework it more like an integration server and supply the command with a stop and start switch that runs it in the background.

    Idea / RFE Review. The dashboard architecture was reworked slightly in ACEv11.0.0.11 so that it now no longer relies on the Integration Server installation as a whole - it is now reworked as a node.js process so is much lighterweight, and which means in future we may separate its installation or supply it through a new form factor such as npm for example. To the direct comment that it would be convenient to have an OS process hierarchy available to the command to make it easier to run as a background task with easier stop and restart capabilities, we agree that there is more that could be done here to improve its usability. Given this, the status of the idea is updated to Future Consideration.
