To be able to use the AMQP headers in options.

On behalf of my customer -

Currently there is no functionality to build an encoded value to use on options.headers where headers are passed to AMQ.

Right now you can base64 decode them, as noted it is AMQP data that is base 64 encoded (and decoding will see binary/hex output), but there are no functions in DP to read or modify these specialized AMQP headers in their human readable format.

This request for enhancement is to have a function in Datapower to read or modify these specialized AMQP headers in human readable format.

The customer is expecting to have AMQP headers treated the same way as other headers like MQ.

See attached case for more details.
