multi select for metric custom field on all metric an subcap reports

Metric custom fields can be iuntegrated within all metric an subcap reports on ILMT REST API.

If integrating with SAM tools you can provide e.g an date filed shown the validation of the software classification.

The issue is that you have to do this entry by entry (row by row). A multi select and change for the same field types (e.g dates, strings etc.) will make the process much easier.

    This usability enhancement does not target basic ILMT functionality of a tool for subcapacity license usage reporting. It addresses rather more advanced SAM use case. So, at this stage we do not intend to implement it.
