Allow relative time frame/data range in Report Definitions

Report definitions in Safer Payments only allow for a fixed time frame definition (i.e. from 2023-06-08 00:00:00 to 2023-06-09 00:00:00). At the same time Safer Payments can generate reports through a scheduled job, i.e. once per day.

The job-generated reports always contain the same results because of the fixed data range/time frame. The report has to be modified manually every day/week/month to get the current data, which means the job is pretty much obsolete.

With the feature of job-generated reports, Safer Payments needs report definition with a relative data range/time frame, as is already possible for queries today (i.e. "server time relative").

That way, reports can actually be generated automatically without a manual workaround.
