Allow newly created custom reports to be Context Specific

Allow newly created custom reports to be Context Specific

When an admin creates a new report from the Report Management, there is no functionality which allows this published or saved report to have a Context field filled in automatically from where the report is run. For instance, we created a report that would list all released drawings. We have added a field for the context, so it would list all released drawings PER CONTEXT. However, the field can not be automatically populated with the current context name, like many of the PTC out-of-the-box reports do. Therefore, each manager, for each context, will be required to enter the name of the context into the report field for every custom report for every time the report is run. OR the admin will need to create custom reports for each context to be pre-populated when each context is created.

Both of these scenarios are not ideal at all when we are trying to get users to run and create these reports.
