using source security IP whitelisting from file

Source security by IP works great, but it relies on you inputting a string into the Application.xml file itself. I’m trying (and failing) to use a single file with a properly formed comma separated string of IP addresses and use xi:include to get the engine to pickup the string from my whitelist.txt file vs. from the Application.xml configuration itself.

Is anyone aware of a method of using IP whitelisting from a file instead of directly within the Application settings? I’m aware of all the other methods of securing RTMP live sources, but for many reasons security by IP is really the only viable method. If I can’t get it to work at the application level, I’ll likely revert to using iptables.

Thanks!
