GIM / STAP Setup by client Profile

On a frequent basis, we get requests to install or uninstall GIM / STAP. When installing GIM / STAP, there are default parameters, however, we have to keep changing these values to our company standard. The new feature would allow us to create a GIM/STAP Setup by Client profile for various database types. For example: Windows STAP for SQL Database - We don't install it on the C:\ so we always have to change the path. In some cases, our team members either don't update it or make a typo in the path - Load balancing value There are parameters we need to adjust manually for other OS / Database type. Having this feature would eliminate human errors and consistent configuration throughout the environment.
