Ability to see message node propeties from the ACE WEBUI

When viewing message flows in the ACE WEBUI it is not possible to view a nodes properties. While it is possible to pull these properties using the REST api, it would be convient to see them from the WEBui while browsing the flow.

    Idea review. This behaviour has now been enhanced. In ACEv12.0.9.0 in the Web UI you can now navigate to a message flow, select the "Flow statistics & layout" tab, scroll down to the picture of the message flow, then click on a node in the flow and the page will refresh to show a picture of the flow with the selected node highlighted in yellow, beneath which there is a properties table showing the node's properties.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this suggestion. This kind of visualisation is something we have discussed internally between the product management and development team and we see good value in the suggestion. In future we are keen to take the flow diagrams which we display in the Flow Statistics views and use similar kinds of visualisation (including more detailed properties of the individual nodes in the flow) elsewhere in the Web UI. The status is updated to Future Consideration.
