Maintain Profile name for fields exported with Field Definition option

When migration releases between OpenPages environments, customers would need to export individual fields that were created in the source environment and import the fields to the target environment. Customer does not want to export the full object where the field is contained, instead customer want to isolate the release changes based on the individual fields and export using the Field Definition option.

Although the new fields in the source environment had the profile name selected under the Profiles drop-down, the profile names are not maintained in the export process and do not appear in the target environment where the exported file is imported. To fix this issue, customer would have to "manually" update the imported fields in the target environment to select the Profile(s) as they are in the source environment.

Can the Field Definition option also include the Profile(s) the field belongs to allowing the import process to set the Profile(s) in the target environment
