It is not clear to the user on how to add multiple configurations in System Settings when configuring something of type String[]

      Description
      Although it may be a bit hard to validate configurations for String arrays since we set the default to empty and dont require them to be correctly set, it would be a lot easiers for users intuitively if we at least created a tooltip or something similar to make it obvious that you need to seperate the configurations for String arrays with the plus button instead of with a comma within the same box. This is the most noticeable for configurations of String[] with no default value, such as Bundle Blacklist

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Go to System Settings > Blogs > File Uploads

      Expected Result
      Tooltip explaining to the user how to add configurations for String[] objects (in a user friendly not technical way) to prevent any risk of confusion

      Actual Result
      If a user tries to create multiple configurations within a single box, it will get treated as one larger configuration

      Tested on Tomcat 9.0.17 + PostgreSQL 10.6
