branch router as dhcp relay

Given that the branch routers don't yet support DHCP reservations we are looking for alternative solutions. One of my ideas was to use the branch router as a DHCP relay, relaying the DHCP requests across the VPN to our corporate DHCP server. (This is no worse than what the Aruba RAP we're replacing is doing.) However, I can't seem to find the DHCP relay setting for a branch router, like I can for an AP. Am I missing it?

It's not supported in HiveManager, but I made it work at the command line of the BR. It would be overwritten on next configuration update so we abandoned it.
