Object Copy reporting

Give the ability to create reports and/or notifications when Object Copy is run.

At least have a pre/post executable ability for any Object Copy. This way you can
run a script or command to gather the session information and dump to a file or email the data.

There’s no direct support for pre/post exec scripts during copy jobs, we do have this support for backups.

 As a workaround, DP’s ‘End Of Session’ notification can be used to track copy jobs, and to trigger scripts depending on the session status. This capability is available even today.

Will this workaround satisfy the requirement ?

Any update on the question above ? Will the workaround suffice ?
