Incorrect parsing of the NetApp export policies (sourcetype=ontap:nfsexports) by the Splunk_TA_ontap app

Dear fellow Splunkers,

The export policies retrieved by the Splunk app Splunk_TA_ontap (sourcetype=ontap:nfsexports) aren't parsed correctly when comma separated values are used.

In the Netapp export policies comma separated values can be used for protocol, rorule, rwrule and superuser. In the _raw Splunk events you can also see that a dictionary was made for those fields. However, they always just return the first value:

`{
anonymous-user-id:12345
super-user-security: {
security-flavor: sys
}
vserver-name: somehost
is-allow-set-uid-enabled: true
client-match: 123.123.123.123/23
ro-rule: {
security-flavor: sys
}
rw-rule: {
security-flavor: sys
}
export-ntfs-unix-security-ops: fail
rule-index: 1
export-chown-mode: restricted
policy-name: policy-name
is-allow-dev-is-enabled: true
protocol: {
access-protocol: nfs3
}

}`

I think this is caused by the generalTwoLevelFlatten method in the Splunk_TA_ontap/bin/ta_ontap/OntapFormatters.py file. Which is documented as:

            """
            Simple flattener for xml responses where we want to
            break events after two levels of wrapper E.G.:
            <results status='passed'>
                            <aggregates>
                                            <aggr-space-info>
                                                            EVENT
                                            </aggr-space-info>
                                            <aggr-space-info>
                                                            EVENT
                                            </aggr-space-info>
                                            <aggr-space-info>
                                                            EVENT
                                            </aggr-space-info>
                            </aggregates>
            </results>

            RETURNS an array of JSON strings
            """

Does anyone have the same issue? And does anyone know a solution?
