[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Collection CSV export

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way to export a CSV of all the Archival Objects under a
specific Resource (collection). The goal would be to generate a CSV of
every child archival object (through all levels of hierarchy*), including
all fields that have been filled for each archival object. Essentially the
opposite of the CSV import function.

Specific use cases include making folder labels, producing reports on
collections' objects, transforming the data for other purposes, running
large granular searches, etc.

I've looked around plugins and custom reports and nothing appears to match
this exactly. I wanted to reach out to the community here to see if anyone
has created such a tool.

There are a couple of ways I can see this being implemented:

   - a button on the Resource level for Download CSV, under Export

   - a version of Report. Report lets you produce a CSV of every archival
   object in the repository but it's limited to 50000 results and doesn't let
   you narrow down by parent, as far as I can see.

Thank you for your help,

(*it could also be all immediate children of a specific archival object
rather than only the resource level, though this doesn't interact as
apparently neatly with the rest of the interface).
